UpdateBar - the easiest way to post a status update to all the social networking accounts you have, no matter what platform they're on.

UpdateBar can post to the following social networks:
- Twitter
- Facebook
- Facebook Pages
- Tumblr
- Identica
- (even your own!)

The number of accounts you have isn't an issue, just one click and all the configured accounts will update at once.

UpdateBar also possesses the following features:
- Link shortening from and, as well as the ability to enter in your own custom URL shortener
- A handy settings drop-down menu to choose which accounts you wish to post to
- A character counter that can be hidden and counts up, so you can keep track of your blog post length
- Simple drop-down from your menu-bar that doesn't take the focus away from what you're doing

Customer Reviews


It's a basic app, but needs some updating before I can ever really use it or recommend it. Major complains are that it doesn't start during login and that the quit button is right below the submit button (where the submit button should be, actually). I've lost a few messages because of this poor UI design.

Good, Needs G+

It's decent for text updates and that alone.
* Needs G+ support
* Needs URL support (well defined not just inline)
* Would be great if it had photo support

facebook doesn't work

can't login to facebook - it says 'success' but then just hangs there FOREVER, and the only option is to cancel out. I've completely deleted the app and all preferences and reinsalled, and it still has this problem.
