Socialite

Version 1.5.4

Creates a single interface for multiple social websites (discontinued).

Socialite overview

Note: As of 10 September 2013, Socialite was discontinued. It will receive no further updates, but will be supported by its developer until 1 November 2013. MacUpdate will continue to provide a download link so long as the file is available.

Socialite is a revolutionary social application. It seamlessly integrates many social websites, including Flickr, Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, RSS and Google Reader. It allows you to interact with them and receive notifications, all from a stunning user interface.

What’s new in version 1.5.4

Updated on Jun 21 2013

Version 1.5.4:
  • Fixes Twitter search following Twitter API 1.1 changes
  • Removes support for adding new Google Reader accounts. Old account still work, probably until Google shuts down the service on July 1st. We're currently waiting to see if other RSS services will support Google Reader API for subscription and syncing. One such candidate is Feedly.com. It's a good service and they're working on a Google Reader-compatible API. They can migrate your Google Reader account to their service, too.

Received an email from the developer as follows... "We regretfully have to announce the end-of-life of Socialite application. We are deeply sorry that Socialite came to this bitter end, and we understand the frustration of loyal Socialite users. We did our best to make it work, but to all things there is a beginning and an end, and this is the end of Socialite. Hopefully, it will also be a beginning of something else." ...so it was fun while it lasted. Have been using ReadKit as an RSS alternative (because of its Feedly integration). As to incorporating Twitter, Facebook, Flickr etc., who knows.

Socialite phones home to Google Analytics. The only reason to do so to my knowledge is to allow Google surveillance of my computer behavior. If your app is going to surveil my computer use, then ASK MY PERMISSION FIRST, DAMMIT. I have used my reverse firewall Little Snitch to deny Socialite access to Google Analytics forever. I suggest other folks with reverse firewalls consider doing the same.

Today was notified by the app that a new version was available. After installing, I can no longer click on the blue quote balloon to see comments to people's initial postings. When I do, the original post moves to the top and greys out, and no comments are displayed.

I want this app to work I really do. I have owned it since it first started as Eventbox & as the app grew yet lost features it seemed to be unbearable to run which was strange. Now without in app browser or Tweet Marker support there is just no point. I have seen non stop requests for Tweet Marker to be added in but the developers sam to be holding out for version 2. By that time I think they would have lost to many users. I loved this app, I really did. Now it just frustrates me.

I felt the need to log in just to leave this review and describe why after two years I've decided to uninstall Socialite. When this product first came to be, known as EventBox, it was an up and comer with many networks supported and many upcoming. Reddit support has not been in this app for some time, yet it is still listed here on MacUpdate and in the screenshot. Tumblr support was also being worked on before the sale to RealMacSoftware, and that never saw the light of day. Really the number one thing that led to an uninstall is the fact that still to this day you have to open a web browser to view news feeds and links, instead of within the app like other similar software. It is a shame that the sale to RealMacSoftware rang the death bell for EventBox, I am not certain that Apparent is going to be able to bring back the promise that it had during the beginning.

It's with a heavy heart that I write this. I've used and supported Socialite ever since it was EventBox, but after all these years it's still too buggy for what I need it to do. As an RSS reader, it's failed me due to persistent lockups with refreshes; as a Twitter client, it's failed me due to constant reauthorization request and perpetual refreshes. I've tried everything on their support forums that's been recommended, and nothing seems to work at all. I'm not really bitter or angry at Apparent Software, I know they try. I've just that I've had enough with my constant struggles in getting this app to work for me.

I use Socialite every day, and I like it very much. I can easily gather the whole social network information in one place. It saves me a lot of time, and helps me keep in touch with all my friends!

After installing Lion it worked for a few days, then all of a sudden, it will not launch. All in all this app feels slow and badly programmed.

All I am really looking for is a living, breathing version of Brizzly. This is fairly close, but lacks auto-expansion of all pictures, videos and links such as Brizzly has. I will say, definitely kudos for not going the route of making it a tiny column like most Twitter apps inexplicably feel compelled to do. Also, I like the fact you can make the fonts bigger. Would be nice if you could customize them too. So, not a bad app, just doesn't do what I was specifically searching for.

Great app. But one question: is there support for Twitter photo upload to Yfrog or alike service? Very needed feature which I couldn't find.

Installed it, added Facebook account, no refresh, couldn't access my Facebook account. After deleting all(!) Socialite files and reinstalling the app, I tried to add FB account again. I was asked to enter a name for the service and after antering a name I've never used before - despite having deleted all existing Socialite files from my Mac - Socialite pulled some account information from somewhere without needing any authorization. I think this app is not very trustworthy and also buggy.

This is a really great app that puts many things in one place and helps eliminate the need to obsessively check several websites as the app notifies you when new items come in. It really helps my productivity. I really like how it remembers my Facebook filters - I have some things hidden from my Facebook news feed and Socialite recognizes this. I love being able to send links from RSS feeds to Twitter and email. I do have a few suggestions: - it would be nice to be able to turn off Retweets by others - Add the ability to read/compose Facebook messages - Add LinkedIn - What about Facebook notifications? Socialite doesn't alert you when you have a new notification on something you posted. - What about updates from Flickr groups?

It's good but not as good as I expected it to be. The flickr images are too small, when a Facebook friend posted a video, I can't seem to view it, no notification when someone replied my comment/ comment on my photos, the Twitter has no trending topics(if you have used Babble, you will notice it has that feature) and when my Google Reader feeds have more than 2000 unreads, it will stop loading the rest. I am looking forward to see more positive changes. If Socialite can add more social networks like LinkedIn and Blogger.

Very glad to hear that Apparent Software have acquired Socialite. One of my top-used apps now in the hands of best developers it's a great news indeed! I am using it since it was called 'EventBox', and I'm familiar with Apparent Software, so I hope you'll give a good kick to this app.
