Default Hootsuite vs Social Scope

Please Login to Remove!

Well for starters SocialScope is much faster than HootSuite but on the other hand Hootsuite has less bugs and minor fixes needed. So which one is best for you if you've used both

Can't really say as I've never used Hootsuite. SocialScope is certainly very capable.

I've used both, but still prefer Socialscope. Like you mentioned, Socialscope is quite fast. I haven't experienced many bugs, though there are a few quirks I'd like to see corrected in future updates. Socialscope has the added perk of being a very versatile app because it's not just a standalone Twitter app but can also do Facebook and 4square. But if we're just coming twitter app versus twitter app, I think Socialscope wins out with it's stronger feature set.

Social Scope allows you to use FaceBook, Flickr, Foursquare and multiple twitter accounts. Not Uber.

I've used SocialScope and HootSuite and UberTwitter. SocialScope hands down in faster, BUT, they need to fix their parsing errors. Sometimes you can load fast but cannot open new notifications.

HootSuite will be nice one day, but too slow and does not always notify you as it should. It is still in beta anyway, so issues are to be epxected.

Ubertwitter is nice and has an edge over SocialScope in you can do multiple twitters. SocialScope only does 2 accounts.

Each app has strong and weak points, but overall at this time I would choose SocialScope.

I am working on something for the general public that will hopefully provide yet another alternative (as time allows me to knock it out)! (Mods, sorry for self promo)

Default Re: Hootsuite vs Social Scope

Hello,

I have 2 different twitter accounts on my SS, but I can see many of same tweets in both accounts, so in the “blue” account I see also “pink” tweets and vice versa. It looks that both accounts post almost the same tweets. Is anything I can do to see at each account only the respective tweets? If I want to see them all together I can use and click at the SS icon, so I don’t really need to have them mixed up also in each twitter account.

Can anybody assist?
Thank you

I would try logging off of SS and logging back in and see if that helps. I noticed sometimes I will get every message I replied to in my inbox from time to time and logoff and back on and it corrects itself. You can also try removing the twitter accounts and readding.

Thank you for your reply. I have tried both, logging off and even removing one of the accounts, but still the same problem. It a bit of color confusing to see in one twitter account, 2 different tweets next to each other from, let's say, The Economist, one in pink and the other one in blue...

I would tell you to contact SS support but they do not really get back to folks. So try a good ol battery pull and or uninstall/re-install and see if that works. If not then you might be SOL for now. Merry Xmas to you and yours!

Thank you Da BlackberryBoy. I just wanted to know if this was only my problem or there were some others having the same issue. I have done a battery pull, while uninstalling is a bit risky when you wait months for SS to send you an invitation . But I can live with it, no problem .

Marry Xmas to you too !

You can unistall SS at anytime. As long as you have your user/pswd you can goto SocialScope - A Mobile Inbox for your Social Networks from your BB browser and download/install again. You don't even have to enter any login info for your various accounts.

HootSuite v1.0 is out and HootSuite is out of beta. Of course I tried it and noticed my tweets were loading a little faster. Whether code was changed, could not tell you but seems a little faster on my Storm II.

Haven't tried Hootsuite yet as I've been running SocialScope for years.

I have a few SocialScope invites if anyone is interested. @briandewitt on Twitter

Hello
I have used both on my BB.But uninstall Hootsuite beacuse I wasn't comfortable with it and Social Scope is continuing in mine.The only advantage with Hootesuite, it has all Twitter, FB, Linkedin etc in one itself while Social Scope doesn't have linkedin.
