SocialScope is an awesome Twitter and Facebook client that has been in private beta/alpha since December of 2008. That is one crazy long beta period and users have been clamoring for invites since it was launched to a select few. The team has been busy over there and they have just released an update to their app but what is more interesting is their statement about opening up invites:
Invites (coming later this week!) – You’ve been asking for a way to share SocialScope with your friends and we’ll be delivering that later this week.
So it looks like SocialScope might finally start rolling out to more users. Their new release of version .129 adds:
- Full Facebook Experience – We’ve upped our Facebook experience 1000x with Facebook Friends list, Facebook pages, Full Facebook Profiles, Private Messages and Notifications. SocialScope is the best way to use Facebook on your BlackBerry.
- Inbox Integration – Powerful inbox integration allows you to select exactly which messages appear in your BlackBerry inbox.
- Mute – Tired of hearing from a user, application(farmville!) or topic? Now you can block those updates.
- Reduced Battery Usage – We’ve tuned, tweaked and optimized SocialScope to dramatically reduced battery usage. The most powerful social networking app now also the most power efficient.
- Interface Tweaks – SocialScope is faster and easier to use. We’ve made interface tweaks through out the app based on your feedback.
- Invites (coming later this week!) – You’ve been asking for a way to share SocialScope with your friends and we’ll be delivering that later this week.
- Lots of Bug Fixes – We went bug hunting and fixed many issues including url shirking, removing Twitter accounts and location lookup.
These are only the first set of changes! We’ve been hard at work to enable a whole new set of experiences with Socialscope. Keep an eye out for them in the coming weeks.
