Shozu promises to combine all of your social networking sources into one bubbling pot of tweets, updates, super-poking and comments.

Forcing the overflowing effluent of the social-networking world down into your phone, Shozu promises to combine all of your sources into one bubbling pot of tweets, updates and comments.
That’s the problem; there are so many sites and services now that all promises to get your opinion, status and photos up online and out into the world, is somewhat difficult to track them all. Shozu attempts to drag all of these sites together and half succeeds. It effectively offers a large list of supported sites that you have to subscribe to and authorise, this setting up takes time but is unavoidable. Once done each service offer feeds that you can then subscribe to.
It sounds reasonable and works but the main issue is it’s slow and feels clunky despite the decent touch-interface. It does enable you to upload to all of these various services and geotag them if you have GPS. Ultimately it feels compromised and isn’t really preferable to using dedicated apps for your Twitter or Facebook. Potentially the upload and blogging features that it includes for other sites, such as the BBC, BloggerLiveJounral and Flickr may find favour among some.
