T-Mobile enters the Social App arena swinging with Social BuZZ…

August 10, 2010 - Written By Chris Yackulic

T-Mobile recognizes the explosion in the social market with platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, and Flickr. Mobile Software Development at T-Mobile USA has decided to integrate all of those services into one app as a way to keep you in the loop of your life’s fast pace of information and gossip. Social Buzz brings all of your social media feeds into one place, acting as an aggregating tool that does most of the basic of functions. Though T-Mobile has branded this app and requires installing extra software from the Market, you do not have to be a T-Mobile customer to fully make use of this app.

Take into account that you wont be able to get the full features that the native standalone app provides like the new Facebook notification drawer or the photo feed, or Twitter’s moving background. But the app does provide an overall convenience to be able to read or post updates to multiple networks at once, or filter according to network. Social Buzz can also attach files, provide update notifications, and remove a network from the stream at any time. Keep in mind this isn’t an app the will blow you away and since the app is free in the Android Marketplace you really cant complain about much of it, but It’s a godsend for those who really don’t need an ground-breaking social networking experience.

App Name: Social Buzz

Price: Free
