I am an avid fan of apps that serve more than one purpose. Space is a valuable commodity on my BlackBerry PlayBook since I cheaped out and only got a 16gb. When I come across apps that allow me to get rid of two or more other apps on my device, I jump at the chance to try them. Socialite could quite possibly be a dream come true for people like me.

Socialite by SCrApps, is the ultimate in social networking apps. Once you launch Socialite, you simply select the social networks you use and then you’re ready to go. Certain mobile versions of the social networking sites (like Facebook) are opened within the app itself with navigation controls. Other sites will open in your BlackBerry browser.

Socialite works with the following social networking sites:

  • Badoo
  • Bebo
  • deviantart
  • Facebook
  • Flickr
  • Flixster
  • Foursquare
  • Friendster
  • GetGlue
  • Google+
  • Habbo
  • LinkedIn
  • MySpace
  • Orkut
  • Pinterest
  • Qzone
  • RenRen
  • Sina Weibo
  • Twitter
  • Vkontakte
  • YouTube

Socialite was created with BlackBerry 10 in mind. As of right now there is a paid version for the BlackBerry PlayBook and Dev Alpha device that will set you back a measly $0.99. SCrApps has also made their Socialite for the BlackBerry Dev Alpha device that you can try completely FREE! All previous owners of Socialite will be allowed to update to the BlackBerry 10 version for FREE when it becomes available.

My only complaint/issue with Socialite is this. Some apps that don’t have navigation controls make it so you have to entirely close Socialite in order to select a different app. I have spoken with the developer and if rumors are true, he’ll be able to fix that issue with an update to the BB10 SDK or with some extensions that are being worked on.
