    T-Mobile releases Social Buzz app to all Android 2.xx devices



    T-Mobile, the software development company perhaps better known for its wireless service, today released a social media app to the Android Market, called Social Buzz. Social Buzz, although developed initially for T-Mobile dumbphones, has evolved into a what it looks like, a powerful Android social tool. Integrated in Social Buzz are feeds for Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, and MySpace. Sadly absent from the initial release is a widget and Google Buzz integration.

    I only tested the twitter integration so far, but here is a quick list of features you will get with Social Buzz. You are able to update your status, retweet natively, reply, favorite, open links, refresh, sort between my updates and all updates, and set up notifications. Now these are rather basic features that I expect all respectable Twitter apps to have included by now. Also, speed was well below average when refreshing. Social Buzz may not be the perfect app, but who knows, this may appeal to those social butterflies who need access to multiple social networks at one time.

    Social Buzz reminds me very much of HTC's proprietary social app, Friendstream, except that it lacks a widget. However, the surprise here is that T-Mobile's Social Buzz does not require a T-Mobile handset, and thus will work on any Android 2.xx device. And you can download it now from the Android Market, for free. Now, let's hope HTC, Verizon, and Sprint take a lesson from this, and release their own proprietary software to the Android Market, or not. So, has anyone had a chance to play with Social Buzz? First thoughts?

    I don't like it. It needs to be a little faster, to laggy.
