AlertThingy is an Adobe AIR based desktop twitter app that lets you send and receive tweets.
AlertThingy is not as sophisticated and feature rich as the 2 most popular Adobe AIR apps for twitter namely TweetDeck and Twhirl but it has its own advantages with option to add not only twitter but a host of other sites such as Tumblr, Digg, FaceBook etc.
The app also provides the option to filter updates into 3 categories namely, Interesting, Very Interesting and Less Interesting.
AlertThingy is basically for those looking at adding several different status update sites to a single Adobe AIR application.
- Support for multiple sites such as twitter, Digg, FaceBook etc.
- Filter your friends updates into Interesting, Very Interesting and Less Interesting
- Simple and intuitive interface making it easy to use
- Integrated RSS reader so that you stay in touch with your feeds while you tweet
All your social networks (including twitter, flickr, digg, facebook, jaiku, tumblr, TinyURL…) in one place!
