I didn’t expect this to be a continuing series, but frankly, I’ve been kind of annoyed with Janetter’s, which I think was causing problems with my computer. So I went looking for another, and found Yoono.
It’s…okay, I guess. Not great. Servicable, I think is the best word for it.
---Still calls Favorites Favorites! Woo!
---Lets you link a bunch of different social media sites, so you can not only look at updates from Facebook and LinkedIn and whatever, you can also update them all at the same time.
---There’s very little customization of the appearance, and I’m not a fan of the plain white background.
---Navigation is a bit awkward, although you should be able to figure it out (there’s a little icon in the bottom corner that lets you scroll).
---The updates only come in about every minute or so it’s not exactly instant.
---It only lets you go look at a fixed number of posts, so you can only go back so far. Seriously?!
Honestly, I’d stick with Janetter over this one…except, like I said, I think Janetter is causing some glitches in my computer, namely that it’s causing touchpad driver to periodically crash, which means I can’t scroll with it and that’s just so annoying. I don’t know if this problem would happen to other people—my computer is at the crappy end of the technology scale—but the fact that it’s happening at all makes me reconsider their worth. And since I’ve uninstalled it, I haven’t had any problems with my touchpad.
Sigh. We really can’t get something as good as Tweetdeck, can we?
