AlertThingy Adds Filters, Groups, Deeper Search

AlertThingy, an Air app for aggregating social networks developed out of the UK, is poised to release an update to its recent version that improves filtering, adds groups and integrates powerful search. Next Tuesday AlertThingy 3.1 will have new filtering options which lets users identify items tagged as ‘very interesting’, as well as messages and comments ‘directed at the user’. In other words, you can go out and leave it running on your computer – when you get back AlertThingy will track what you need to respond to first.
