MoodBlast 3 – Rapid Fire Status Updates

MoodBlast IconNowadays, the average Mac user has many different statuses he or she needs to update. Twitter, Facebook, Jaiku, Tumblr, and now even your chat status require constant updating and tending to.

Using an old status would just be plain careless now, wouldn’t it? However, constantly traveling to each and every one of these websites and typing in the same one to two sentence status several times is just plain tedious.

Enter MoodBlast, from Circle Six Design, an easy to update your mood on numerous services, all at once and as it happens. When you open up MoodBlast, you’ll see there will be a little pill icon in your menubar. After entering your account info for Twitter, Facebook, Jaiku or Tumblr (Adium, iChat or Skype will be auto deteced) and setting up a universal hotkey, you bring up the main window of MoodBlast.

In the text box provided, enter the status you want and check off the services you want that status to be “blasted” onto. As I said, Adium, iChat, and Skype will all be auto-detected. What’s more is that you can use certain short keywords, with an @ sign prepended to them, that change the status of these programs. Take, for example, the keyword “gone”; in the aforementioned communication applications, this sets you as Offline.

All these keywords are user programmable, so fret not if you like nonconformity. Another small feature, pictured above, is that each service corresponds with a letter on your keyboard. S – Skype, I – iChat, and so on. This is helpful for people like me, who enjoy using their keyboard as much as possible (I tab my way through everything). In all, MoodBlast is a great way to update you statuses for all the services you regularly frequent.

MoodBlast is a free download from Circle Six Design.
