Navigating through all your favorite social networks can be time-consuming as well as messy. As an all-in-one app, Socialite for Mac gathers together recent updates from social networks you belong to and can help you simplify your social networking life.
Users can try Socialite for Mac for free or buy it for $9.95. The installation of this rather small program went fast. The interface doesn't have the wow factor, but it is well organized and intuitive; at times, however, we had some trouble with scrolling that was not so smooth. You can easily integrate many social Web sites like Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, and Digg, as well as RSS feeds, and then receive all the content updates in one place. Also, this app is well integrated with Growl, which means that every time your friends update their status or post a photo you will see a notification. However, it's a shame the program does not support some other very popular social networks, such as Tumblr or Reddit.
If you're tired of navigating through several different social networks or apps and logging in and out, then Socialite for Mac could be exactly what you're looking for. This app is suitable for all social media fans who wish to receive updates all in one place.
