Phone Apps could use Interaction Designers #crackberry #rant

Seesmic Web

Who else noticed that Seesmic Web‘s interface and functionality changed? They added Tweet scheduling and Klout scores below the Tweets, I hope they implement more changes soon so they can better compete with Hootsuite and the other Twitter clients.

The issue with Seesmic Web is that they are using a web based platform, which – unlike a desktop client – makes it difficult to create add ons, with the exception of Greasemonkey userscripts. This means it’s difficult for third parties to create new features without giving them access to a Web Service.
