If you are anything like me you will have multiple social networks where you connect with friends and see what is new with them. Wouldn’t it be nice to go to one place and see everything there laid out nicely in front of you? Well, there have been lots of attempts to integrate variety of networks together in one super duper aggregator and Skimmer is the newest addition.
Skimmer is an Adobe Air desktop app for Mac and PC that allows you to integrate your Twitter, YouTube, Flickr, Facebook and Blogger accounts into one good looking platform.
Skimmer beta was released in March 2009 to mixed but overall positive reviews here is a brief summary of those positive and negative thoughts on the web:
- Bit sluggish
- Little buggy
- Jack of all trades, master of none
- Only 5 networks to choose from
- Takes up lots of memory
- Looks great
- Alter colour scheme
- Easy to access networks
Overall we think Skimmer is pretty good but if you’re one of those chaps/ladies that spend more time on Twitter and Facebook then TweetDeck is a better option for you.
