Snaptu: The Best Mobile App For Facebook, Twitter, and More

Snaptu is a free cross-platform mobile application that packages a decent library of high quality mini-apps within one main app.  For me, Snaptu is the most used app on my phone, after Opera Mini.

I am a huge Facebook and Twitter user.  I can’t go very long without checking my friends and family’s updates.  Snaptu makes this very easy because instead of opening up my browser and going to m.twitter.com or touch.facebook.com, it takes two quick clicks to get to one of these apps.

The Facebook and Twitter clients are constantly being updated with new functionality.  I really like the user interface, and I’ve found that the customizable font is always perfectly readable.  There’s always the PC or mobile browser for the few features that Snaptu doesn’t include, a number which seems to be constantly decreasing.

I’ve also found the news readers to be particularly useful.  Snaptu has several built in news readers, including the Guardian News Reader, the Reuters News Reader, and Snaptu’s own News and Blogs reader.  The News and Blogs reader has an extensive directory of categorized RSS feeds, but you can also add one from a specific URL or import from Google Reader.

Check out United Tech Guys in the News & Blogs directory under “Technology.”

Snaptu is an amazing app.  There may be better apps for each individual feature, but the convenience of having it all laid out in front of you makes up for that.
