Social Beat is a social lifeline for any Verizon customer that is looking to keep up to date with their social networking circle and more. Social Beat connects you to Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, Gmail, Google Talk and over 50 news, sports & entertainments feeds. What's so nice about this app is how it beautifully combines all these networks and news information on an easy to use interface.
Social Beat is great for anyone who is always staying up to date with their social network and the news. I myself am always looking to stay up to date with the latest news from CNN and my Twitter/FB friends. You can view Twitter, Facebook, etc in their separate tab, or you can also view all of your networks and RSS feeds in what they call My Stream. The only negative that I feel needs to be pointed out is the typing lag.
Social Beat was previously only available for the Curve 8530 on Verizon, but is now being pushed to all Verizon BlackBerry users including the Storm 9550. If you don't see the Social beat icon, try resending your service books.
