App Review – Social Pro

It has been a while since I have done a Mac App Review so have decided today to review Social Pro by Grandsoft.

One of my favorite features on Apple devices is how my iPhone or iPad notifies me of Social Media or email alerts and this is the same idea for a Mac. The App initially opens up in it’s own window and you can set which platforms you want to activate. You can choose Facebook, Twiter, Gmail or Google+ and once set up the App then runs in the background and will notify you when you receive a new mail or Facebook alert or Tweet. The alert appears in the top right of the screen and you can then either go to the App or associated social media URL to find your alert. This means you can work away without being distracted or constantly checking your social media sites for updates. There is also option sound alerts so you can be alerted with a ‘ping’

I have been using the App for about a week and it works fantastically on Facebook and on Twitter but sometimes misses my mails in gmail which isn’t a big deal since I have Mac mail doing this for me but it would be good if all three features worked. I don’t use Google+ so can’t comment there.

So now my Mac does the same as my devices and I can receive social media alerts right to it something which is not necessary but a handy feature to have and also means I no longer have to leave tabs open in my browser for these sites to update in.

To get the App you can download it from HERE.
