NewsGator goes social on Windows 8
31 October 2012
NewsGator has announced an app to bring the social workplace to Windows 8 – available now as a sideloaded Windows Store App.
The app allows users to access Social Sites from their Windows 8 devices, and was built to mirror Microsoft’s new user experience.
“We built this app to focus on a more human-centric approach,” said Brain Kellner, NewsGator’s executive vice president of development and product management. “We want our users to be able to interact with their colleagues and access content from any of their devices. This app for Windows 8 is one way we’re making social technology smarter and better-enabling the end user to surface relevant connections and content when and where they need it.”

NewsGator The Lookout interface allows users to choose the type of content they want to view, creating intelligent information streams of relevant people, communities, topics, subjects, notifications, and more.
Originally released in August 2012, this same user experience is available today in the Social Sites for Windows 8 app.
“We are pleased it developed an application that will give our mutual SharePoint Social Sites clients a different kind of interaction model that, in a single glance, shows users what’s new and what they need to pay attention to on their Windows 8 devices,” said John Richards, senior director of Windows App Marketing for Microsoft.
The NewsGator Social Sites for Windows 8 app is available immediately as a download from the Windows Store. Users can see the new app in action at the NewsGator booth at the SharePoint Conference 2012 in Las Vegas, Nevada on 12-15 November.
