…. If you are anything like me, you have dozens or hundreds of active bloggers that you like to follow. Combined with friends and family, coworkers, and witty peers, you can quickly find yourself under a mountain of updates, pokes, and tweets. Worse case, you become overwhelmed and abandon the platforms entirely.
Dozens of twitter tools and services exist to improve the experience (Here are a few from Jeremiah Owyang and Lee Odden). At the crux of the burden though is merely staying abreast of the updates without constantly visiting the various networks and refreshing pages.
An Adobe AIR desktop client, Feedalizr, brings the updates right to your Taskbar, delivering Twitter, FriendFeed, Flickr, Jaiku, VideoVideo, and Facebook updates directly to you in subtle, scrolling windows or through the opened application. With Feedalizer open you can follow hot topics, post your updates and tweets, and reply directly with friends in an intuitive IM-like experience.
If this reads like a glowing endorsement, it is. Delivering one of the most useful Adobe AIR applications I’ve discovered, Feedalizr is a must download that will keep you happily twittering. Merry Christmas! @seobrien
