Seesmic for Android received an update. The social networking client has added beta support for Salesforce’s Chatter service, which you can now use from Seesmic alongside Twitter and Google Buzz. The Salesforce Chatter integration lets you read your Chatter feed, comment, view groups, profiles (and you can call, email or see a person’s address with one tap), post updates with attachments, and cross-post to and from Twitter and Google Buzz.
To add the beta version of Salesforce Chatter, just tap the “+” button at the top of the accounts screen, and login securely with the Salesforce authorization (OAuth 2) flow. Your account will appear and you can then just tap on it to access it.
Also its sports an improved UI — the reload, compose, and search buttons are now always visible and not hidden away in the Menu, letting you easily take an action in the app with one tap. The Composer has been revamped and features auto-complete support (which searches through both usernames and actual names, and kicks in once you write a letter after “@”) and attachment management of photos and videos.
You can now change your Twitter avatar from within Seesmic for Android, and view full conversations once hitting the “in reply to” link in a tweet — previously you had to hit “in reply to” for each tweet in a conversation.
Performance improvements have also made it into Seesmic 1.5, and on my slightly underpowered Android 2.1 device these are easily noticeable, especially in start-up and load/refresh times.
To get the beta version of Seesmic for Android with Salesforce Chatter, simple download the app from the Android Market.
