A Guide to SocialScope Shortcuts

SocialScopeSocialScope is a new application for BlackBerry that allows users to simultaneously post to Twitter and Facebook. They are also working on Flickr and FourSquare integration. Unfortunately, they are still in private alpha. You can get on the waiting list by signing up at socialscope.net. Those of us who are fortunate enough to have been sent an invitation to SocialScope have discovered just how hard it is to live without it.

Those of us who have been lucky enough to beta/alpha this amazing app have been given the warning to not post screen shots or “word pictures” of the application or it’s functionality, lest our invitation be revoked. In light of this, I will not be reviewing the app until it’s release, though many others have done so. However, in an attempt to share info for those who are interested, I am posting this list of shortcuts.

    1. Glad you liked it! I know they are in alpha, but one would think there would be some sort of user support page or something! You should follow me on twitter. Click the link at the top of the screen. Hope to hear from you again. Thanks for visiting!

  1. although still beta, you can just log out from socialscope if you want to delete a previously uploaded image on socialscope.

    1. Thanks for letting us know! I have added your shortcut to the list.

      If you find any more, please leave another comment! Thanks for visiting. Hope to hear from you again!

      1. No problem!

        I do have another one, that’s more of a tip than a keyboard shortcut, but it’s worthy of sharing.

        The back button (to the right of the trackball) will take you to the tabs bar, WITHOUT going to the top of the timeline you are in…

        I use that all the time now!

  2. I call “spacebar” button for scrolling down.
    To scroll up, you press “shift+spacebar”.
    It’s a common shortcut in BB platform, I suppose.

    1. I am glad you like it. If you find any new ones, please leave a comment to let us all know. Thanks for the comment. Hope to hear from you again!
