Yoono Desktop is a Windows software application whose purpose is to help you connect to multiple social networks, IM services, and other online platforms from a single place.
Supported online services
The tool offers support for Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, MySpace, YouTube, Flickr, Foursquare, Yammer, and FriendFeed.
Adding a new account proves to be a child’s play, as the program needs only your authentication parameters for completing the job. You may add multiple accounts for each service and update your status across all services at once.
Yoono Desktop automatically places a sidebar on the left part of your screen. This one is resizable and provides access to all your configured accounts.
The utility makes use of columns for displaying the online activity for the current service. For example, in case you have set up your Twitter account, you can check out new tweets, notifications, and messages, post tweets, retweet, upload pictures, and reply to other tweets.
Aside from the column where you can keep track of the latest posts, Yoono Desktop offers support for a built-in browser that helps you check out your account using browser-like actions (e.g. refresh, go to the previous or next page).
The browser keeps things simple, without offering advanced features. The page load time is not quite fantastic but you are allowed to view data in your web browser in case the built-in one does not fit your preferences.
Yoono Desktop lets you show counters for messages directed to you (e.g. Facebook inbox messages, Twitter direct messages and mentions), enable HTTPS on Twitter and Facebook, modify the avatar size, display offline contacts, and organize your friends into groups.
Plus, you can set up popup alerts upon new friends' online status and instant messages, play a sound notification, pick the position of the popups (bottom right or left, top right or left), and change the display time.
All in all, Yoono Desktop wins some extra points for its dashboard that keeps you up-to-date with online activity, support for multiple accounts, status sync across all your services at once, as well as link, image and video sharing options.
