Review of Flock

Flock is a great program for Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X. In Flock you can login to many account from different things at once. Flock makes it very easy to go from sending an email in Gmail, to uploading a video on Youtube. Flock also remembers all of your account names and passwords, so you don’t have to keep them written down on a piece of paper. Some of the supported services are Facebook, Flickr, Gmail, Yahoo Mail, and Twitter. Even if Flock doesn’t support your service it will remember the password and user name. This is the case with me for MacRumors and other forums that I use. It also has 17 other services that are supported such as blogs like Blogspot. I am posting this from Flock right now and it is working very well.

You can also subscribe to RSS feeds, and it is very easy to navigate though the different feeds. Another feature in the Flock RSS reader is that you can save articles from blogs or feeds to read at another time. This is very helpful if you are in a rush to get to work and you have some free time later in the day to read them later.

Flock looks similar to Internet Explorer with the multiple tabs and the search bar up in the top right hand corner. It is also very easy to edit different preferences such as the search engine that you want to use.

Overall I would give Flock 5 out of 5 stars for it’s ease of use and the user friendly aspect of it.
