Nokia Social updated to version 1.2, supports Facebook video uploading
I saw the news that Nokia’s N8 Social client was updated to version 1.2 on a Tweet yesterday. I went into the software update section and did not see an update so I then went in to the Nokia Social application and was prompted to update the software. I did not have a chance to put together a video or screenshots of the new version, but the gang over at All About Symbian sure did so check out all the details there.
I still think Gravity is king when it comes to social networking apps and it is worth the $10, but this Nokia Social app has gotten much better and may fit the needs for the casual social person. For one thing, you cannot connect more than one Twitter account at once, which is definitely a power user kind of thing. I also need a conversation view so I can follow what is going on.
As Rafe details, this is a major update though and the most talked about problem before, font sizes, has been addressed so that the application does look quite nice and it is great to see an update coming so quickly. It tells me there is some real promise here with this application.
One key new feature that may have me using this for Facebook is the ability to upload videos taken with the N8 directly to your Facebook account. IMHO, that is pretty major!
