Socialite

1.5.4
21 June 2013

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

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 Socialite

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.

Hmm, that exactly what I am talking of: "EventBox MacHeist You might have noticed that we're featured on MacHeist and it's a free download. I expect many people to ask the question why buy it then? Here's the short answer: the MacHeist Edition of EventBox is not the same as regular EventBox. Here are the reasons: * The MacHeist edition includes no official support whatsoever. If you're having a problem or want to request a feature, you're probably out of luck. * Most importantly, the MacHeist edition includes no updates at all. This means you're forever stuck at build 566. Since we're planning on adding many many new features in the future, you're essentially going to be running an ancient version. I'm talking about syncing, multiple accounts, TwitPic, centralized notifications, more services. We will be adding TONS of new stuff. And this is only up until version 1.0. We're planning to have a very long 1.x series, so buying EventBox now will last you at least 1.5-2 years. * We've got permission from Digg and we will be returning their plugin as soon as possible. You won't be able to use Digg from the MacHeist edition." As far as I know there were only two developers so far, that tried something similar, product were GraphicCoverter and SpeedDownload. It created a lot of problems. Both developer fonud a reasonable solution. But you cannot just write a blog entry and then offer an autoamtic (!) update feature that smply cancels your licence information and sets you back to a trial. I am a regular shareware user and I bought roughly 200 shareware products in the last 5 years. It´s not about paying money for software and reasonably upgrades. But I do not like to offer some special deal and then just trying to urge existing customers to a payment by simply locking them out. Then just call it a trial what it actually was..

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.

"Have been using ReadKit as an RSS alternative (because of its Feedly integration). As to incorporating Twitter, Facebook, Flickr etc., who knows. " Same here, Readkit is a very good app for the ReadLater/RSS portions. Maybe they will add Twitter lists etc. one day? Socialitee probably tried too hard with too many services (Twitter changing the API didn't help, same for Google Reader shutting down..) and constant developer changes. Does anyone know of an alternative beyond Readkit?

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.

This is a change twitter made with their new API 1.1 and the Developer has to implement this new look and feel of twitter.com speak: twitter removed a handy Feature! hat tip: maybe time to switch to #ADN

Wish the scrolling was more smooth. It is tough on the eyes when you wear glasses.

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, too, am tired of the struggle. I had less problems when it was EventBox. The two changes of ownership and the updates have only made this app worse for me. I have to rebuild my database about every third time I open it. I stopped adding all my accounts and feeds. It's too time consuming. I'm just trying to get by with two Twitter accounts, and I can't even do that. I just installed the latest version and had to rebuild my DB again. It's sad, because I first considered this to be the perfect social app for me. I can't even go back to my second favorite, Nambu, because they have gone by the wayside [sigh].

I haven't been using it that long but I was so impressed at first that I bought it. Now...I’m using Reeder and Twitter and FaceTab. [ditto on the sigh]

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!
