Monitor your digital life with iSwarm for Windows Phone 8

If you're frequently online using multiple social networks, you may feel overwhelmed at times when looking at main feeds, especially if you're following numerous sources. Luckily, there are some services out there that enable you to group, filter and manage your social accounts. One of said services is iSwarm (, which has just launched on Windows Phone 8.

Whether you're a business executive or a social media savvy consumer, iSwarm is worth checking out. Developed and released by Ceiba Solutions, the Windows Phone app taps into the company's cloud-based iSwarm monitoring platform. As touched on above, the service enables you to track, manage and follow more streamlined feeds from the social universe. 

Utilising watchlists, iSwarm lets you focus on the important and relevant topics, cutting out all the in-between and general chatter. These watchlists can be configured on the fly, across multiple social channels (including app stores) to provide you with a less manic social experience. Here's what Warren Casey, CEO at Ceiba Solutions, had to comment on the announcement:

"Social media has become a part of people’s lives in ways that were unimaginable just a few years ago. Following the things that interest us in work and play is part of the modern lifestyle. The iSwarm Windows Phone 8 app is designed to give enthusiasts from the corporate executive to the aspiring student a shortcut to discover conversations that have real meaning."

Social networks supported by iSwarm include Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and YouTube, but there are also RSS feeds and application reviews pulled from both the iTunes and Google Play stores. It's entirely customisable to your personal (or professional) requirements, making it easier to remain in the loop with important social media conversations and trending topics.

The app is a simple solution with an intuitive user interface. While there's not a whole lot of functionality included, it further enables you to skip clutter and useless steps to get stuck into social media content - exactly what you'd want with such an app installed on your Windows Phone. Should you require a little help with your social profiles, give iSwarm a shot.

You can download iSwarm from the Windows Phone Store (requires Windows Phone 8).

  • Keep'm coming
  • I'm not a fan of how people include 'i' in front of a bunch of stuff that aren't Apple related.
  • I have to agree with that. Even some new gadgets are "I" something, I looks as if Apple made then when apple have nothing to do with it.
  • Exactly.. Came here to shout this^.. iHate iShit
  • Me too. I will not purchase anything from a company that uses i in there name or products. Yes even Intel for there processors.
  • Actually, this was started before Apple selected its product names. When internet commerce began to really take off in the early 90's, with Amazon and others, it was the designation  "I" or "E" for short many companies on the net chose to promote its products. It was largely why Apple got big focus on it to promote its internet store and having major success of its product, didn't hurt em.
  • Isn't most of this functionality in the People tile? I can see how it would be useful on a phone without ®Live Tiles.
  • Thanks for the feedback @Tennis Court, @NIST. We worked closely with Microsoft's WP8 team to reduce overlap as much as possible; iSwarm provides a search and save 'Watchlist' approach over pre-defined streams that you may find in the People Hub. We welcome you to download and see the difference for yourself! Enjoy   @MonitorWhatMatters
  • Those kinds of comments are usually made by people who haven't even tried what they are commenting on. They can't wait to post something snarky.
