HelloTxt – your status on all your social networks in one click

by Ka Edong on March 5, 2009

I first heard about HelloTxt from my friend Anton when I read his e-book at Maven Secrets .  I’ve been playing around with HelloTxt these past few days and it’s been quite nifty.

I tried it out, and here’s sharing my experience  so far.

From the HelloTxt website:

HelloTxt lets you update your status and read your friends’ status across all main
microblogging and social networks all at once…

You can update your status on the website, or using email or even from your mobile phone. You can also embed photos and video right into your status updates.

Ka Edong’s HelloTxt Life experience (all three days of it)

  • Easy to register. I got my account running within a minute.
  • Easy to add your social networks. HelloTxt made it easy for me to connect to my social networks and microblogging sites (Twitter, Plurk, Facebook, Friendster etc.).
  • There’s a “social services” dashboard which lists all the networks that HelloTxt connects to. It’s as easy as choosing your social network and entering your username and password. (Some require extra steps like activating an app on Facebook).
  • After adding your social network, it’s listed conveniently on the upper right side of your HelloTxt lifestream.

  • When you visit your lifestream, Just enter your status on the status box, click “Update status” and all your listed social networks are updated with your new status.
  • You can even post photos or videos to enhance your status.
  • You can update via SMS or email. There’s even a service that let’s you update status through a phone call!
  • HelloTxt mobile version: m.hellotxt.com

These guys are up to something hot!

I haven’t been able to activate my SMS update, though. I’ve tried activating twice, but haven’t received the activation email.

Try out HelloTxt especially if you have multiple social networks or microblogs that you wish to update in one fell sweep. Check out my HelloTxt lifestream.

  • Hmm.. Ping.fm’s got competition, eh.

    I use Ping.fm to do this, by the way.

  • Hmm. Ping.fm has got competition, eh! I use Ping.fm to do this, btw.

  • hi arnold,
    yup, ping.fm has competition.
    I’ve used ping.fm too. Haven’t looked around for their other features.

    But with hellotxt’s sms, email and *voice*, they’re one up. …. if only i can get it to work, hehehe …

  • Ah, they have a Philippine based SMS gateway?

  • Apparently not. I haven’t received my SMS confirmations, eh.

    Might be an International SMS the way it’s configured now (not sure).

  • great post, thanks Ka Edong.
    About the SMS we are working to improve that area.

    Have you tried the friend’s status page?
