Create a desktop client for HootSuite
If you could create a desktop client for HootSuite (a native one), it would be a real boost to your excellent service.
It could be written in something like Qt, so it would become cross platform and also very fast.
Pls create a desktop App for Mac.
What is often mentioned in this forum (this Chrome thing, e.g. here: http://feedback.hootsuite.com/forums/40182-hootsuite-com-web-dashboard/suggestions/1945809-hootsutie-should-have-a-desktop-app-for-mac-and-wi) does NOT work on Mac.
An actual non-browser application for Hootsuite.
So you have the feeling of a real application. And so that you do`nt have to open your browser each time you want to use Hootsuite.
If can build a windows desktop client and make it real time refresh will be powerful enough to replace the dying tweetDeck.
and not this ersatz you came up with which is basically just like a web browser. Besides, the interface's weakness quickly comes into focus when one clicks on flickr or instagram links (or any link for that matter) and is taken back to ... a web browser! You need image/video viewer integration. I'd be willing to pay a couple bucks more per month to have a more performing desktop app (I'm on MacBookPro)
A windows 8 app that can be launched from the new start menu and have access to your account.
You already make a stand alone app for Apple computers but not for Wiindows. I don't want to have to run it in a browser.
I joined HootSuite but will not be using it as I expected it to be a freestanding desktop application in Windows. I am not interested in somethging that only operates in a browser.
Can't believe this doesn't exist already but you really should have a standalone windows desktop client app.
The lack of one has made me choose to not use HootSuite until they do.
Browser plugins and shortcuts aren't going to cut it for anyone doing serious social networking on a windows machine.
the solutions offered now are Prism, which is dead, or Chrome shortcuts. i'd rather a dedicated application. this alone is keeping me with tweetdeck and it's a memory hog. help! :)
I think that it would bee a good time to make one science tweetdeck was taken by twofer and mortally wonder the app. So this would be the best time to do it and if you make one make a notification pop up FYI
While we have no plans for a traditional desktop app, we’ll examine the use case scenario for one.

I've been using Tweetdeck 0.38 up until the very last minute, but now I have to switch. Hootsuite is very promising. I like the UI. The look. But I only run desktop clients. I want a seperate item on my taskbar. And I don't want my twitter experience ruined by my constantly open bookmarks etc.
So 3 votes for a Desktop Client for windows.

I use your service for only a small bit of what I could as I HATE web clients. I find that I close them down when I don't want to as it is a browser not an app. I'm running Chrome not HootSuite. Plus - it is slower in the browser...
Look at something like TweetDeck, Twitter is killing the old Adobe air version that really rocks so there is an opening for a great client experience. You guys do so much more but at the end of the day the client experience is what really matter to people's day to day usage. The experience I get from the HootSuite web client is poor so I only use it when I need it and I'm looking for a better client now as the TweetDeck client is going bye bye. :(
PLEASE --- give us a beautiful native Mac client!! PLEASE

Windows 8 app!

I agree. Desktop notifications would make my job a lot easier and would push me to use hootsuite more often. Tweetdeck gets used more often cause of this function, not because I like it more.

Thank you for following up with me! We'll mark this as under review.

Yes, I am. It's sort of a let's pretend to be a desktop app but not a real one. At the very least needs image/video player integration. thanks.
Another vote for a Windows 8 app.
It has more features than tweetdeck,
But without desktop client i won't be using it
