To get started, simply login to your Facebook, Twitter and Gmail accounts. Once logged in, you will be provided with an iOS style interface from where you can manage your respective accounts. There is a menu button located for each account (except Twitter), which bring up the numerous social media /Gmail options.
For your Twitter account, you can view and manage your Twitter mentions, favorites, messages and write tweets from the main interface, and also receive system tray notifications for new Twitter updates.
Similarly, you can sort and manage all Gmail emails, as if you were logged into your account via the browser. The only exceptions is that account options are separately displayed by clicking the Menu button.
