AVG Officially Launches Desktop Safe Social App MultiMi [Updates]

AVG Antivirus   AVG Officially Launches Desktop Safe Social App MultiMi [Updates]AVG, one of the leaders in security software, officially launched their desktop social application called MultiMi. MultiMi is designed as a way of getting all of your social services in one place and controlling them with the added security that AVG is known to offer. For someone managing many of different email, social, photo and chat services, this free program is a great choice.

The purpose of MultiMi is two-fold. The first reason it exists is to give you a place to link and keep up with all of your favorite services. The services supported include, but are not limited to, Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, Google Reader, YouTube, and Flickr. Most services with large user bases are available (Google+ is missing, but they do not have an open API). If you hate going to multiple apps and websites to keep up with everything, you will love MultiMi.

The second reason for the creation of MultiMi is safety. AVG is a company primarily known for making security software, and they have implemented security measures in this app. This means you can browse the latest happenings on all these services with peace of mind.

Typing this comment from the MultiMi browser :). The interface, idea and execution is brilliant. Browser is a bit fidgety though and not as smooth as chrome but a very good application all round. One problem though, I couldn’t sign into this website with my google/facebook account using this browser. Overall, its a pretty good innovation and something that actually works when it says about integrating and combining information and other stuff from social websites. Updates will surely solve other small bugs which I encountered. And best of all, the safety of AVG rides along.

That’s awesome! Glad you’re digging it!

Google+ use to work with this software last I heard via email from Multimi they were working on a fix…evidently not. Don’t get me wrong it’s still pretty good software but I think I will stick to flipboard on my phone. Now a flipboard client for the desktop computer life would be bliss.

Waiting for Tumblr and Pinterest as well as G+ integration. Chrome does everything I need with its apps and extensions, also has extra peace of mind with Lastpass, Ghostery and Adblock. If Multimi can manage this along side the AVG security it might be worth a go.

I really wanted to like this, but it’s stiff and slow and a pain to add nested drawers to. When I used it it repeatedly opened IE9 and Office without me asking it to and it seems they are in no rush to allow Tumblr or Pinterest to be readily added so all in all a disappointment. I will keep an eye out and maybe come back to it in a few months, as it is a good idea, just not yet quite finished enough.
