Improvements in Seesmic Windows & a Fix for Seesmic for Blackberry

Dear Team Seesmic Friends,

We have two announcements to share: First, we recently found an issue with our Friday release on our Seesmic for Blackberry app, which impacts the refreshing of timeline for those that follow a lot of users. We now have a fix that should address the issue - just simply close out of the app and you'll be asked to update upon opening the app. We'll continue to monitor this and will be on the lookout.

Second, our Seesmic for Windows gets a maintenance update with some new features such as new RT, add users to lists. We are working in parallel on a huge release which will take a few more weeks.

Having gained the constant support from all our users, we have updated Seesmic for Windows with eagerly awaited for features.

Seesmic for Windows 0.6 now includes:

- Ability to add new users to Twitter Lists
- Follow / Un-follow users
- Native RT
- Block or Spam users that have undesired DM or Tweets

Ability to add new users to Twitter Lists

This is a greatly appreciated feature in Seesmic for Windows update. Simply by hovering over the user's avatar, you will be able to directly access Twitter lists and add other followers. The modifications will automatically become available.

Follow or Un-follow

One of the most practical and useful functions of Seesmic for Windows is the easiness of following or un-following users. If you click on the user name, you'll visit the selected profile. Apart from the user's information and updates, the profile includes the: Follow, Un-follow and Block buttons. Of course, the profile also displays the number of users tracking the line of tweets and recent updates.

Native RT

Taking into consideration the fastness of spreading information, Seesmic for Windows now integrates the new native RT. We have also kept the for those of you that are still keen on the old style RT. The gear wheel on a user's avatar permits you to opt between the two.

Block or Spam

If a user's tweets or DM have become an annoyance, it is possible to report it and Block or declare Spam. We have included this option, always having the interest to maintain your transparency and security issues unharmed.

Furthermore, we have also included the auto-correction of messages when introduced in panel box.

You can also send Images via TweetPhoto network.


The aspects that some of you have so kindly pointed to us in the past have been dealt with:

- Strange message appearing in timeline < Unexpected character encountered while parsing value>
- The disadvantage of not being able to see all the user's image
- Inability to install the application
- Disadvantage of including shortened links into the panel box
- Application failing unexpectedly
- Inability to see the correct size of the window when maximized

We are very happy to hear your opinions on using Seesmic for Windows 0.6 and quite interested in all your feedback and suggestions.
