A little heads-up for all the folks that came from Socialscope/Blackberry
For all former BB/Socialscope lovers, I have great news. I just received an email from the Socialscope team asking me to be a tester for their Android app. Now the build isn't ready for distribution to testers yet, but should be in short order.
Here's to keeping fingers crossed that the beta is a go here in a few days. Will keep you guys updated. If any others have received an invite, by all means contribute to this thread, please!
I have missed Socialscope so much.. FAR & AWAY the best social app i've ever used.. and I've used most of 'em.

I received the same invite. The impression I get from the email I received was that they plan to make an android app eventually, but as of yet haven't even broken ground on it. If I recall correctly, it's a one or two man operation, so it'll probably be a rather long time before we see it. In the meantime, Tweetdeck fills the role quite well and is developing rapidly."Some see the glass as half-empty, some see the glass as half-full. I see the glass as too big."

I received the email also, and I sent in my request for the android app, but I will NOT be holding my breath for that one.... geez, I remember it taking MONTHS just to get an invite on my blackberry, and others were very frustrated that they had waited even longer and received nothing, or were one of the original testers and new testers got the updated app while they waited with the old version. How stupid. Just for this very reason, I am reluctant to even install an android Socialscope app, too much drama I tell you....

However, that seems to have changed of late. I've been following them on Twitter for months and they've been rolling out invites en masses lately.. Besides, I was one of the "lucky ones" and got mine and couples of days after request..
I'm not really holding my breath, but am hopeful. I'm still using FriendStream cause I just did care for Tweetdeck much. We'll see how it goes!If I've been helpful to you in some such way or another, kindly hit the "Thanks" button on the bottom right.. Appreciate it!

tweetdeck is a nice fix for the time being but i have found i have to keep going to accounts and clicking on the fackbook account and let it re-initialize before my posts will post to it, but then again i fully close it to save on batt comsumption too. good app overall. foursquare integration not so good though ill stick to the foursquare app, for now.
