Tweet and Use Facebook on Your NOOK Color with My6sense
Stock NOOK Color users were excited to get an update last week that brought Froyo, Flash and a curated app store to their e-book reader. In our post about the update, we said “the NOOK Color is a Twitter and Facebook client away from being the preferred Android tablet for a ton of folks.” As it turns out, it already has a Twitter and Facebook client: the smart news reader my6sense, currently the only NOOK Color app that can post to Twitter or Facebook.
My6sense sits in the Nook’s app store beside Pulse, another feed reading app, but Pulse doesn’t include the same social features that my6sense does. Though still primarily a news consumption app, my6sense has gone through several updates since launching that have enhanced its social functionality, giving users all the features they need to use it as a Twitter client and a Facebook client. It even will let you keep up with your friends on Google Buzz, if that’s your social network of choice.
Louis Gray, my6sense’s VP of Marketing, pointed out their unique position in the NOOK Color’s app store:
“There’s no native Twitter app, no Facebook app, no TweetDeck, Seesmic or any other of the well-known social app clients on this device, so if you want to tweet from your NOOK Color, you should be using my6sense.”
So if you have a NOOK Color and haven’t flashed it with custom firmware, my6sense, a free app, is a no-brainer. We may well see other social apps come to the Nook in the future, but my6sense is a great option for now that will likely stay on your phone once other options are available.
