sobees improves its already powerful desktop app (updated)

Here is an important update for our social application sobees beta! We have been working hard to bring not only huge improvements but also great new features and services.

First of all, we worked on our Twitter service. Thanks to xAuth, we now offer higher security as well as more API calls per hour (350 instead of 150). In addition, and since TwitPic does not support oAuth, your pictures will now be uploaded on Tweetphoto!

We also added two new great services that many of you were waiting for: an RSS reader and New York Times, which lets you read the newspapers’ news and articles directly into sobees!

Lastly, we have now added Riotwise sponsored content to Twitter in this application too. Since it is linked to Twitter’s trending topics and to your own search query in the Search, this sponsored content is highly interesting! No need to worry however: for now, and until we release the premium version of sobees beta, you will be able to disable these ads. Therefore, simply head to the Options.

We have always been doing our very best to provide you with the best applications on the market and are really excited to share such good news with you. We hope you will enjoy this new update!

Update : The option for removing sponsored content from the timeline was unfortunately not visible in the options. We just released an update to fix that (version 0.8.1.5). Make sure to get the latest version if you want to remove the sponsored content and then go in Options – General).
