Editors' review

Arranged with a side bar and multicolumn view, Seesmic Desktop is ideal for Twitter and Facebook fanatics with multiple accounts. The cross-platform Adobe AIR app collects all status messages from all your accounts in one feed. You have the option of making that status feed the only column, or can keep it as one of three default columns on the Seesmic Desktop interface. Direct replies and messages are the other two options. The app's search box and a text field from which you post your updates give it the feel of a truncated browser.

Seesmic Desktop competently handles the Twitter desktop basics, like sending messages, replies, and retweets, posting images, and shortening links. You can comment and "Like" a buddy's Facebook status, and can now also manage activity on a Facebook "fan page" if you administer one. You can also keep a user list, save a favorite message, and unfollow or block contacts. Two favorite features include posting tweets to Twitter and Facebook simultaneously, and, like Twhirl, receiving notification pop-ups above the task tray for certain events, like receiving a new direct message or reply. Seesmic Desktop lacks the capability to integrate most other social networking accounts, nor does it have any skinning options, or other visual customizations.

Seesmic Desktop and Twhirl share a parent company, and many core features. Yet Seesmic is a slightly stronger management app for those who constantly juggle more than one Twitter account, for those who manage a Facebook fan page, and for those who want to keep track of Twitter and Facebook timelines together.

    "Broken in many ways"

    January 20, 2013   |   By GregFlemming

    Version: Seesmic Desktop (AIR) 0.6.2

    Pros

    I didn't pay any money. It only wasted my time.

    Cons

    The instant the first install is completed it'll start looking for updates while you're trying to configure your first social media account, and it will be spitting security certificate warnings all over your configuration attempts.

    Once you get the updates applied and configure some accounts you'll discover that it can't authenticate with Twitter or Facebook.

    Summary

    Don't waste your time.

    "Simply Doesn't Work - Don't waste your time"

    April 08, 2012   |   By captain_slow

    Version: Seesmic Desktop (AIR) 0.6.2

    Pros

    Unfortunately nothing positive to say

    Cons

    The whole installation was a fight and the it crashes while it's loading in Adobe Air, then crashes Adobe which then crashes the computer...which is some feat. I tried getting help and nothing worked, gave up and tried MultiMi instead.

    Summary

    Doesn't do what it says and was a waste of a 2 days trying to get it to work, too frustrating. Gave up and tried Multimi which was a breath of fresh air, free works great, and does a ton. Seesmic took a big misstep in releasing this, back to the drawing boards.

    "It won't load at all, just get configuration panel"

    March 26, 2011   |   By dsaldridge

    Version: Seesmic Desktop (AIR) 0.6.2

    Pros

    Used to love this app, but now it's a total bust

    Cons

    This applicaton suddenly stopped working. I uninstalled and reinstalled and updated, and it still doesn't work. I can only get the configuration panel to load. There is not decent support option at Seesmic, so I'm going to switch to another app.

    Summary

    I loved this app until it suddenly stopped working. I don't know if they have simply discontinued the Air version or what, but it doesn't load. Seesmic2 that runs on Silverlight will not load on my computer either. I've tried to find a way to contact them and it seems impossible to get any kind of response. The @askseesmic on Twitter is useless. I'm switching to something else. This isn't worth my time or trouble. Too bad, because it was a great app when it worked.

    "Use Yono, this one is a broken."

    September 09, 2010   |   By Surturon

    Version: Seesmic Desktop (AIR) 0.6.2

    Pros

    Nothing good to say about this one.

    Cons

    Install routine requires downloading other products. And after all that, it fails on its stated purpose, to log into multiple clients.

    Summary

    Broken software, needs basic de-bugging to be worth the time to download.
