Boxcar is gaining popularity quickly with iPhone and iPad users. The basic concept of Boxcar is to feed all of you social information into one application where you can get the most up to date information.
Boxcar also allows for push notifications for many services that wouldn’t normally push to your iPhone or iPad. You can select custom push notification sounds per application that you setup in Boxcar. Boxcar also allows you to set time periods for quiet so you don’t have to wake up in the middle of the night for a Twitter mention. The rest of the time you can customize notifications by audible alerts, vibrate, etc.
There are over 35 different compatible clients that are currently able to feed into Boxcar. Some of the more popular include:
- Twitter: Mentions, DMs, Favorites, RTs, New Followers (Multiple Accounts)
- Facebook: Opens your Facebook app when you select items
- Google Voice
- Google Buzz
- RSS feeds (a lot of applications for this )
