Yesterday I got an invitation to test an early TechPreview of Spindex, the brand new SocialWeb-Client from Microsoft`s Research Lab FUSE.
Spindex is a Web-Application which allows you to read your Twitter, Facebook, RSS-Feeds and Evernote-Notes in one single webpage. So It can be compared to services like Brizzly or Web-Apps from Seesmic.
What can you do with Spindex what competitors can’t provide?
· BING-Search Integration: If you click on a tweet, Blog, Evernote-or Facebook-Posting, Search Results from BING are displayed immediately right to it (see screenshot)
· Search through your stream. With one query you can search through the news-stream of the sources mentioned above. Searches can be saved.
· Publish your status updates to Facebook, Twitter or directly to both social networks
· You can choose if you want to search through your friends postings or/and through a public stream.
· Remember: If you like to read an article/posting later (and don’t want to “fav” it), then you can click on remember and it will be stored in the evernote-section
- Spindex is a historical index of your social streams, a “BING of your social diary”. Most aggregators only access a window of 24 -48 hours.
On my wishlist for Spindex would be:
· Resolve Twitpic and Youtube-Links within Spindex (Best Practise: Brizzly).
· Usage of Twitter-Lists
· Better working Trending-Topics: currently German nouns are not recognized and Trending topics look like “der-in-das-im-dann”
- Advanced Synchronization with Evernote: Remembered Postings/Tweets can be read in your favourite Evernote-Client
