Socialcast, the twitter-like social network for groups and organizations, has released a free iPhone app that will allow you to communicate with your group from your mobile device.
Here are some of the features:
- Share messages, comments and likes
- Search the entire network for information
- View anyone’s profile and contact information
- Follow and unfollow users
- Browse employee photo galleries
Here’s a screenshot of the main page
Note: You access everything via the top right button that shows Home Stream. It then pops up the familiar scrollable navigation window that allows you to do other things.
The only complaint I had was the fact that this only support one account. This might not be that big a deal for most socialcast users that only belong to one company network but there are many of us that belong to several socialcast networks. It would be great if we could add multiple accounts or at the very least be allowed to logoff and log on with different credentials. I could not find a way to simply logoff so the only way I was able to jump from one network to another was to go to the settings page for the iphone and change the email address and password settings for SocialCast.
Other than that, having the ability to connect to your socialcast network via your mobile device is very useful and it works very well.
