Snaptu showcase: Quick mobile access to Facebook, Twitter and more
The developer of Snaptu has now ceased development of the application. Users are recommended to instead download Facebook for Every Phone.
Snaptu gives you quicker access to popular internet services such as Facebook, Twitter, Picasa and more.
Navigating the Web on a mobile phone has always been a thankless task, but now we're starting to see more intelligent apps that make it easier to get straight to the content you need.
Snaptu is one such program, giving you free and instant access to some of the Web's most popular services. From one neat front screen, Snaptu hooks you up with a range of online tools, including Facebook, Twitter, Picasa, movie reviews, RSS feeds, weather, live sports scores, and much more - all of which can be launched simply by clicking on the appropriate icon.
Customize your Snaptu
Snaptu is a highly customizable program, allowing you to set up the interface to show only the icons of the services you want to use. Once you've entered your log-in details for Facebook, Twitter and Picasa, these are saved, so you can access latest updates, photos, etc. with a single click. Granted, not all of the features from these social networks are available within Snaptu, but it provides a nice way of staying up-to-date while you're on the move.
Each of the different mini-apps within Snaptu has its own set of options and settings, so you can tweak each one individually to display the particular content you're interested in. Once thing I found was that many of the apps, such as MyMovies, Cricket Scores, and the pub guide are very UK-centric, so anyone living outside of Great Britain may be disappointed with the lack of relevant content. Hopefully this is something that Snaptu's developers will address in time.
On the whole though, Snaptu offers a fast and simple way of staying connected to the web content that matters to you.
this is the best program ever specially when u realize that other web <taglink type="program" country="en" id="76204">pages</taglink> charge u for the same files tnx to the managers of sofonic

A good software for most of your Social Media needs.
I came across Snaptu while desperately searching for a mobile program I could use on my Nokia phone to access Twitter. Most programs I found were meant for the higher end phones, and the ones which could work on the entry level GPRS phones were very clumsy (jitter, tiny twitter) and gave you a feeling of browsing the internet using the old text based browser called lynx, whereas what I had in my mind was an equivalent of Gmail for Mobile. Though I was searching for a twitter specific tool, Snaptu turned out to be much more than just twitter. It is a one point solution for almost all your social networking needs - Twitter, Facebook, News & Blogs, Orkut, LinkedIn, Picassa, flickr, etc. What's more, once you have integrated your twitter/facebook accounts, any news item or blog you read can be directly posted to your twitter/fb accounts, with a built in URL shortener. In the news & blogs section you can add most of the news websites, enabling me to read news in a very mobile friendly format. On the twitter module, the features I found attractive are 'Reply to All', 'View Conversation', and the ability to access the links found in tweets in a mobile friendly presentation. In addition, all the things you do on twitter web can also be done here - follow/unfollow, add to list, etc. The other modules are configurable, similar to adding gadgets in Google Desktop or the Windows Vista sidebar. In short, I am thankful to snaptu for two things - for postponing my decision to purchase a higher end phone (can now patiently wait for the 3G services to be popular & affordable in India), and for making my life less boring during most of my boring train journeys (which are increasingly getting alarmingly frequent)
Pros: Most Social Media already integrated, or links provided for Good & intuitive user interface
Cons: No offline mode No integration with blogger or any direct option to blog
