    Somehow I can’t get Facebook to integrate with SocialLife, it gives me some strange error: Cannot use this Facebook account. Sign in with your SEN account, remove this Facebook account and try again. Problem is, there is nog facebook account shown when I sign in with SEN…

    Just updated to it. Not sure the new UI (which works fine on a phone) is an improvement; it’s not precisely worse but it’s not really better either.
    The old mosiac tiles format was more tablet-friendly and worked better in that it allowed you to see multiple posts at once quicker.

    The new UI’s main shortcoming is the way it handles images; it can make feeds and individual category/stream pages look very haphazard. Plus, it still has performance and self-unloading issues, like the phone’s. And the internal browser crashes more than before.

    The Socialife Share widget (quick post to twitter, etc. from homescreen) isn’t resizable anymore, the text seems to have gotten slightly smaller and text rendering is poorer. Plus the card-stack Socialife headlines widget (like on phones) is also just plain awful especially if you want to size it up, you know, for a tablet’s homescreen.

    Oh, and it’s all white now. I don’t like white apps, they’re not kind on eyes in the dark.
