Status Report

Category: 

Description of App: 

Status Report is a combined client app for Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Foursquare. The focus is on getting a quick overview over what’s happening in all your feeds in an integrated interface without having to check multiple apps. It is not a substitute for the respective services’ own apps for doing more advanced stuff like adding new friends, reading private messages etc.

It is smart enough to notice when a status update from e.g. Twitter is mirrored to a Facebook account and combines them into one, so you don’t have to read the same update twice (but you can still access the metadata from both services, so you can both retweet the tweet and like the mirrored Facebook post from the app for example).

Features:
Combines your news feeds from Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Foursquare into a grand unified feed.

Twitter:
• Reply, retweet, favorite.
• Post new tweets.
• Follow links in tweets and add them to Instapaper for reading later.

Facebook:
• See status updates, links, photos and check-ins.
• Post new status updates.
• Like and comment from within the app.
• Follow links, add them to Instapaper for reading later.

Instagram:
• Like and comment on pictures.

Foursquare:
• Post shouts.
• Comment on check-ins.

Status Report is optimized for reading your consolidated feeds, but you can also post simple status messages (140 characters) and choose which of your different accounts to post it from.

Status Report is also excellent for keeping up with the feeds from social networks that you have joined at some point but aren’t participating in a lot. Now they just get mixed in with the feeds from the services you are more invested in without you having to check a separate app or web site.

Accessibility Comments: 

This app works great with VoiceOver. I had no trouble adding my social networking accounts and find the News Feed in Status Report to be very user-friendly. Most of the other features are easy to useand this is a very simple alternative to an ever-changing Facebook and Four Square world. There's one issue I have contacted the developer about which you should read in the C"Other Comments" section before buying.

Other Comments: 

This app works great overall with gathering all your News Feeds in one place. The only issue I have had is with posting to Twitter. I contacted the developer received a response back within 24 hours. He stated there is a known issue for some people to have problems posting to Twitter in the current version and they are working on fixing it in the next update. Once that has been fixed, I will edit this review and recommend the app in general. In the meantime, if you're looking for a way to get all your social networking clients together, this is a great app to do so and it is only $0.99.
