App Of The Week: EventBox

by Juan on December 23rd, 2008

“Pack your social networks in one box”. That’s the apt slogan that The Cosmic Machine coined up for EventBox. This app puts together in one interface several popular social networking services. Facebook, Twitter, Flickr are some of the services that it integrates.

Instead of opening the several networking apps in several browser windows, EventBox packs it all for you in one neat interface. You just have one app open and it retrieves your data for you.

A great idea but the app is still in beta and there are some kinks that need to be worked out. I had a little trouble authenticating my Facebook account. But it seems to be working now.

One of the things I’m not so hot about right now is that there’s no slideshow feature for the pictures I’m viewing. Especially Flickr. You can scroll to the photos but there’s no automatic way to play them all. You also can’t view the bigger versions without it opening a browser window for you.

Right now as a beta release this is ok with room for improvement but so far I don’t see myself paying $20 ($15 during the beta period) for this.
