Today, many people maintain accounts at a number of different social networking sites as well as email. Some even have multiple email addresses. The Threadsy application is intended as an easy way for users to integrate all of their social networking profiles and email accounts into a single, easy to use application. Instead of logging into a number of different websites, those who sign up for Threadsy can access everything through a single online location.Show more screenshots »
Threadsy is a relatively new application, announced in September of 2009. After eight months of beta testing the application has been released to the general public. The goal of Threadsy is to offer regular internet users a way to save time on their daily social networking and email checking. Many people juggle multiple browsers at once, which can bog down a computer and become difficult to manage. Threadsy was created to streamline the process and save users time and frustration by presenting all the user’s social networking and email account details in a single browser.
There are many social networking and email websites available, but few that actually work to bring all of those popular virtual communities together. Threadsy stands out because it was not designed to fall in with those popular internet activities, but rather bring them all together in a way that benefits the user. Not only is Threadsy convenient for those who register, it can also save time. The average user can spend less time navigating from one social networking site to another then to their email and more time doing productive things (both on and off the internet).
Visitors to the Threadsy website find a playfully cutting edge graphic design and color scheme. Brilliant orange is offset by smoky grey. The layout is very basic, which works extremely well to keep the site clean and organized. Threadsy gets right to the point, taking users to the features and functions they want and need rather than tossing a lot of text or graphics at them from the get go.
As soon as new users arrive at the Threadsy website, they are greeted with the option to sign up. A large registration box is presented, requesting a user name and password. After entering the valid information and checking the terms of service box, new users are taken to the add email accounts page. Here, all the most popular email types are available, from AOL to Gmail and Yahoo. The next step allows users to add their social networking profiles.
Threadsy is a new and growing application with a lot of potential. That being said, the only account option currently offered is a free account. Although changes could be made in the future, there has been no comment to that effect. The free price tag makes Threadsy even more attractive, blending it well with free social networking sites and free email accounts. Users can get organized without investing money in the process when registering for Threadsy.
Anyone who spends extensive time on the internet can benefit from a Threadsy account. While the occasional internet browser may not have a long list of social networking websites and email accounts they check regularly, most frequent users do. Even business people and professionals can utilize Threadsy by lowering the amount of time required to check multiple email accounts while keeping up to date on their social networking profiles. This kind of time-saving tool can give any business owner an edge when communicating with customers as well as employees.
