Alert Thingy is a Desktop app for friendfeed status updates. Alert Thingy is a Adobe Air app for friendfeed like Twhirl for twitter, which streams updates and allows you to post comments and messages to friendfeed.
Till now i am not an active user of friendfeed but after installing Alert Thingy i am now following friendfeed streams. Desktop apps are very good to follow these type of conversations than web. It also integrates a search function which is quite useful.
Alert Thingy looks great but there are some rough edges like currently it comes in dark background and white text which is hard to read. When you minimize it won’t go to the system tray but stays in the taskbar, i would expect it to hide is systel tray. Anyway it is a good app if you use friendfeed and wants to follow others streams easily with out much hassle. Thanks Shankar
