Sobees, creator of a .NET/WPF desktop app for social media junkies, has just launched a new version. This latest release adds Digg to the list of supported services which already includes Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and Flickr, as well as RSS feeds, too. The Facebook integration has also been revamped to allow for the addition of the full Facebook stream – that means you can see the comments now, not just the updates themselves.
One of the things the aggregator is good for is tracking a various topic across the social web. Sobees even offers a few built-in modules for following popular subjects. New modules in this release (which are, by the way, strangely called “bDules” – I know, I don’t get, either) include MLB, NFL, Soccer, and Tennis.
Incidentally, “bDule” is also the name of another product by Sobees which is a single window application for tracking just Twitter and Facebook.
One final improvement has to do with the aesthetics of the app. Before, there was a rather large and cumbersome ribbon floating at the top of the application. That’s now been thinned down considerably and even offers an auto-hide feature to get it out of the way. (Whew!)
