Twitter and Facebook on Your Desktop Using Mixero
By on March 17th, 2010

mixero-screenI am not a big fan of Adobe Air apps, Mozilla Prism or Google Chrome app shortcuts. These frameworks allow you to run web applications on your PC’s desktop like other applications. I like web applications to stay in the browser. However, I can be tempted away from the browser occasionally.

Mixero is an Adobe Air application that brings Twitter and Facebook to your PC, Mac or iPhone desktop. It offers speed, plenty of functions and lots of ways to filter the content. It really is pretty amazing. Take a look at this video showing off the features of Mixero.

As I said earlier, I don’t normally like web apps running on my desktop, but Mixero is very tempting. So far, the only way I’ve been able to mix up Twitter and Facebook is by using Brizzly.com. It’s a good alternative if you decide you definitely want to stay inside your web browser. In the mean time, I’ll keep Mixero awhile to see how much use I get from it.

Download Mixero (available for PC, Mac and iPhone, requires Adobe Air)

Techie Buzz Verdict:

Mixero’s speed and features are sure to make plenty of Social Web addicts very happy. If it wasn’t dependent on Adobe Air, I’d like it much better. I’d also like to see them add more services, such as MySpace or Google Buzz.

Techie Buzz Rating: 3/5 (Good)

    I tried Mixero but I didn't like it that much, I still stick to Yoono Desktop, it let's you connect to all the major social networks from your desktop. I connected it with Twitter, Facebook, AIM, and Flickr.

    I didn't enjoy this as well. I'm also a typical browser lover, i don't see the need to switch to those kind of apps atm.

      Hi Birk,

      Did you try out the site Brizzly? http://brizzly.com/

      It's a good alternative that lets you see Twitter and Facebook in the same spot. Lots of nice features too.
