Please allow us to introduce Scuttlebutt 2.0, the most powerful Yammer app today designed for the world’s most advanced operating system. With Scuttlebutt 2.0 you will be able to engage your colleagues more in Yammer yet still get real work done.
It’s now easier than ever to share into Yammer with Scuttlebutt’s sharing extension. You find a great article on the web? Share it to your colleagues directly from Safari. You’ve just made a great Keynote slide? Post it into Yammer without switching out from Keynote. These are made possible by Scuttlebutt’s new support for sharing extensions introduced in OS X 10.10 “Yosemite”.
Similarly Scuttlebutt is also fully compatible with other sharing extensions. Found a nice post from your colleague in Yammer? Just one click to repost it to LinkedIn, add it to your Pocket reading list, or any other social media or application that has a compatible sharing extension.
You can mark people as VIP to quickly see their public conversation in your network. People marked as VIP are shown in the sidebar that shows any conversation that they take part in – regardless whether they were the thread starter or just replied to an existing thread. However you still will not able to see their private conversations to other people.
The combined feed window have been integrated into the main window. Here you can see all messages from across networks and accounts. That is if you have more than one Yammer account, all messages that you can see are collected into this feed.
One of the most requested functionality is chat. Now Scuttlebutt 2.0 has just that – a new chat window built around Yammer’s private messages. Hence you can easily have multiple private conversations with your colleagues in Yammer.
There is now a built-in documentation that is fully searchable and loaded with useful tips how to maximize your productivity with Scuttlebutt.
We’ve redesigned Scuttlebutt to be at home with the new look and feel introduced in OS X 10.10 “Yosemite” – translucencies, retina-gorgeous glyphs, and a spiffy new icon.
Licensing Changes in 2.0
By popular demand, Scuttlebutt 2.0 is now exclusive to the Mac App Store. If you’ve purchased Scuttlebutt Pro 1.x (the direct-download version) from 1 December 2014 until the release of Scuttlebutt 2.0, you will receive a coupon code to download Scuttlebutt 2.0 from the Mac App Store for free. We would love to offer a upgrade pricing, however the current Mac App Store terms and conditions does not allow this.
Scuttlebutt 2.0 is offered at the Mac App Store for $29.99 (or equivalent in other currencies). Furthermore these optional features are available as in-app purchases:
- Multiple active accounts for $39.99 – simultaneously logged in using more than one Yammer account.
- Developer console for $9.99 – use your credentials to test Yammer’s REST API.
Last but not least, we would like to thank you, our users, for supporting Scuttlebutt for more than two years now. As of this writing, Scuttlebutt is the only surviving full-fledged Yammer client for the Mac since the official client was discontinued and competing Yammer clients haven’t been updated to support Yammer’s latest API changes. Please help spread the word so that we can continue supporting Scuttlebutt well into the future.
