Editors' review

If you're a member of the social networking community Orkut, you'll appreciate this chat accessory for letting you know when other members send you new scraps. Scrapboy's interface features the official logo and is a simple dialog box for signing into your Orkut account. After signing in, Scrapboy's icon resides in the system tray. An alert pops up when a new scrap arrives, and you can read it without navigating to the Orkut Web site, saving you time from continually checking the site for updated messages. The right-click menu also provides quick access to your Friends list, and you can turn off message alerts if you wish. During testing, the program performed quickly and without any glitches. Orkut members who want to save time from checking the site frequently for scraps will find Scrapboy to be a simple and easy-to-use solution.

    "can't log into facebook"

    October 03, 2010   |   By scottamus

    Version: Scrapboy 2

    Pros

    potentially useful if it worked.

    Cons

    says it can't find facebook, check my internet connection (while I'm typing this and logged into facebook). I searched and found a this question posted on their website with 100's of people with the same problem and no response from the developers

    Summary

    I don't know. I guess they just gave up? Maybe they are just collecting log in ids? Bottom line is ***?

    Summary

    This application is supposed to have support for facebook. But every time I tried to login I get an error. The developer does not provide any sort of help with this issue.

    "Good one but needs some change...."

    January 25, 2009   |   By Sriraj Nair

    Version: Scrapboy 2

    Pros

    It makes your work easier.......rather than waiting to log-in to the website you can log-in at your desktop itself...

    Cons

    I am not sure about the security measures that the developers might have implied......moreover certain for using certain features in orkut you have to log-in at the web-site itself.

    Summary

    I like the software for it saves time.......it saves the site-loading time i must say.......but as far as the security measures are concerned i will stay muted.

    "Essential social network tool"

    September 18, 2008   |   By nmw85

    Version: Scrapboy 2

    Pros

    Aside from vastly improving Facebook chat with new features and a more msn-like look, it allows the user to control their social network experience in a new way: having a desktop tool that filters, delivers and notifies users on info they choose.

    Cons

    Previously users were not able to individually customize if they wanted photo or wall post/scrap updates but now that option is available so no complaints!

    Summary

    With the rapidly increasing amount of information (photos, friends, etc) out there (especially for those who are active users of social networks or have multiple ones) Scrapboy provides time-saving and essential filtering in a number of ways that serve multiple purposes. Whatever you want to get out of your social network, you can select to hear about and learn in real time via notification from Scrapboy. Additionally it allows for new ways or organizing and sorting through friends lists (all), events (facebook) in addition to adding new and fun features to enrich the experience of interacting with these sites. Five Stars!
