Google Buzz Gets Another Shot in Seesmic for Android

Ryan Whitwam

Google's Twitter-killer, Google Buzz didn't have the best launch. Since then, most users have abandoned the service. With an API finally in use, more apps could be building in support for Buzz. One such app is Seesmic on the Android platform . Google has neglected to build a real Buzz app, so this is one of the best Buzz experiences users can get on a mobile platform.

The app will allow users to send new messages, follow people, as well as the ability to share items. Users will have to add in their Buzz credentials to Seesmic and authorize the app to post content. The Buzz timeline looks much as the standard Twitter timeline does in the app. This might help some users become accustomed to Buzz. The standard web interface could do with some sprucing up.

As more clients like Tweetdeck and Seesmic adopt Google Buzz, we'll have to see if usage increases. Do you think it's too late for Buzz, or can they turn it around with third party apps?
