Pownce Review

You could say that I haven't been using Pownce (Powncing?) long enough to be putting together any kind of comprehensive review and that the following is nothing but a feature request wish-list. I instead prefer to say that Pownce deserves to be talked about and seems like it's made by the type of people who listen to the ideas of it's users. Take that.
 
If you haven't heard of Pownce yet, here's the basics: Pownce is a way to send messages, files, links, and events to your friends. You create a network of the people you know and then you can share stuff with all of them, just a few of them, or even just one other person really fast. It's made by Megatechtronium which consists of Leah Culver, Daniel Burka, Kevin Rose(!!) and Shawn Allen and has only been around since mid-June of this year.
 
So it's another Twiiter? No, there's enough differences to say that Pownce has at least put a twist on the idea. The ability to send files it's desktop client really set it apart.
 
To be fair, it's still in it's infancy but here's my critique/requests...
 
The Web Interface.
  • Simple and clean layout makes all of the available tasks easier.
  • I love the dropdown allowing you to select whether your note goes public, to your friends or to one person but the ability to send a note to two people (or more) at the same time would be nice.
  • I'm sure there are more page theme options on the way. Everyone needs to customize/personalize.
  • I shouldn't have to log out to see public messages - the only current difference between public and friends depends on whether you have admirers or not. Nobody admires me. The public stream creates interest beyond one's own universe.
  • It's sometimes difficult to follow replies and threaded conversations (or at least recognize them as such).
  • SMS integration. This is a must. Otherwise, in my world, Pownce loses it's functionality once I leave my seat. Which is sometimes. I swear.
  • Friend lists look to be ordered randomly. How about ordered by frequency of contact or something meaningful?
  • An "on-line" status indicator.
 The Desktop Interface.
This is where Pownce shines but there's a few things (unique to the desktop client) that really bug me.
  • When replying to a message, a window/tab opens in your browser. This kind of defeats the purpose. I'm sure this one is on the list of projects.
  • The list refreshes once every 60 seconds or manually. If messages escalate into more of a chat, I would like to be able to set the refresh rate to a smaller increment.
I haven't had much of a chance to try out the file and event functions but I'm sure that I will. Pownce has my attention and devotion (buhbye, Twitter).
 
As of right now, you'll need an invite to join. Once invited, you get 6 invites of your own. I almost hope that they keep this system in place. It creates interest through exclusivity, makes having invites something to brag about and keeps out some of the spammers/idiots.
 
If anyone wants to befriend me I'm here. If you're looking for an invite, you'll have to offer up your immortal soul to someone else because I'm fresh out.

Paula the Surf Mom says..... I will try it next week and let you know what I think... Now I think all Twitter does is slow my page loading time to a crawl.

I'm surprised at how much I'm actually using it. Twitter lost it's appeal after moments for me. Don't forget to add me as a friend!

I didn't realise we have to log out to see public messages. PS: I can see what I'm typing! Hurrah!

As Vrtualme noted above, http://pownce.com/public_notes/ will show them without logging out. I think they should integrate into the "home" page. Maybe a text-only sidebar.

I'm in but haven't used it enough to make my mind up yet. It looks good though and everyone seems to like it so far which is a always a good sign.
