Hootsuite Releases Screenshots of Upcoming BlackBerry App

Hootsuite is an app that was meant for BlackBerry and RIM should take a cue from their ability to manage multiple accounts at once. One of the coolest features of BlackBerry 6 is the ability to get an aggregate feed (Social Feeds) of Facebook, Twitter and RSS, but the problem is that the native clients don’t support some of the basic functionality of these social networks. With Twitter for BlackBerry, you can’t use multiple accounts and with Facebook for BlackBerry, you can’t manage pages. With Hootsuite for web, you can manage multiple Twitter accounts and Facebook pages, which according to the screenshot on the far right, Hootsuite for BlackBerry will be able to as well.

SocialScope is a great application because it gives you access to several accounts in one application. Hootsuite gives similar utility in that it allows you to access several accounts from your desktop in a single web app. Today, the company sent out a newsletter with a “BlackBerry Notes” section at the bottom that read:

Finally, fans of RIM’s Blackberry phones can almost…. finally begin Hoot-ing since HootBerry is just about ready for beta release. To get on-board for early access, simply sign up at: http://ow.ly/2aRUx and you’ll be among the first to try the new tool.

Of course the company won’t be naming the application HootBerry, as that would conflict with the vendor agreement on App World. Unless they never plan to distribute using App World which would be a little silly. If anyone gets accepted to the Beta, let us know what you think! Use the above ow.ly link to find the beta registration form.
