Snaptu- One Touch Solution to All Your Web FeedsFiled Under Nokia 5800 Applications
How does the idea of having access to all your web feeds in one place sound to you? No, we are not talking about an RSS feed reader but something way beyond that. We mean social networking services as well as web apps, yeah right everything that you wish you could carry with you in one single screen! That’s exactly what Snaptu is all about-a single solution for all your web needs, well almost!
So there is Facebook, Twitter, Picassa, FlickR, Accuweather… We can go on and on but that’s not really what we are here for. We are to see how these services actually fare within Snaptu, and you will find the answer to that after the break.
Well that is something for a web app! We haven’t seen a better solution for aggregating all our feed in one place. It’s like the Google Reader for your 5800 and what makes it better is that apart from pulling feeds from your favorite websites, it also pulls your feeds from Facebook, Orkut, MySpace, Twitter, Picassa, Flickr, Photobucket and much more. Its more like: You name it, they have it scenario here.
The app is really fast and once you key in all your account info, it’s as easy as A B C, no kidding! All this comes at a cost though: the app is not as exhaustive as each of those stand-alone apps. To give you an example: there is no option to upload photos in Facebook/Twitter apps of Snaptu.
What we like?
- Aggregation of all services in one easy-to-use app
- Sleek UI
What we don’t like?
- Limited features for the included apps
Though the individual apps are nowhere near the capabilities of the stand-alone apps of each of the services, Snaptu provides a fast and intuitive interface to access all your favorite feeds in one place. The tight integration of the variety services covering SNS (Facebook, MySpace etc), Image Sharing (Picassa, FlickR), and web apps (Nimbuzz), Sudoku etc make this a worthwhile download on your 5800s.
