Chances are you’re familiar with both StumbleUpon and Digg. Have you ever wished it would be as easy to Digg posts as it was to Stumble from site to site? Well, now it can be. Sub Digger Plus wasn’t created by Digg (so it’s uncertain if using it will get your Digg account in trouble), but it’s a great way to make keeping up with your friends’ Digg submissions. Not only is this tool helpful, it’s not difficult to use. In fact, if you know your Digg username, that’s all you need to enter to start using the tool (which works on Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Chrome browsers.)

With no plugins to download or software to install, Sub Digger Plus makes it simple to easily check out Digg submissions from your friends. After entering your Digg username, you’ll go to a screen with a toolbar on the bottom. Your friends’ submissions will load in the top of the screen. All you have to do is click one button to see the next submission. There’s also a handy list view that’s sortable. Depending on your personal preferences, you can choose to sort the list by Date, Diggs, Title, Submitter, Topic or Read (and any of these options can be sorted in ascending or descending order). This makes it super easy to see what your friends are doing at Digg, and provides you with the opportunity to create a really personalized Digg experience.

The bar that displays on the bottom of the screen shows you the title of the submission, the date it was submitted, and the avatar of the person who submitted it. This makes it easy to see the actual website that was “Dugg” while knowing who among your friends submitted it. If you’d rather see an overview of activity for the last 24 hours, this is easy as well. The fully functioning list view of Sub Digger Plus gives you all the information you need at your fingertips.

While the word is still out on whether or not Digg officially supports this tool for the site, it has the potential to make your life easier if you use Digg a lot. With the ability to sort in different ways, no need for special downloads, and the other features available, you’re going to want to at least check out this Digg submission tools. If you’ve ever been “stumbling” at SU and wished it was just as easy to check out Digg submissions, you’re in luck. Digg has always been relatively easy to use, but this makes it even easier to check out submissions and make sure they’re worthy of your Diggs. Being free makes it even easier to take it for a spin.

    I've never like the cumbersome nature of Digg. I'm more of a StumbleUpon guy where I can quickly "thumb up" something I like and move on – this looks like it could alleviate that issue for people like me. I'd sure use Digg more if it was easier to submit.

    Thanks for sharing,

      Well Matt this doesn’t really make it easier to submit but it does make it extremely easy to quickly go through all your mutual friends submissions. I mean I want to check out their stuff because they are my friends. This allows you to easily do this by clicking the next button. So for me it seems almost like using stumble you hit next and go straight to viewing the actual page (via the diggbar) of the next submission without having to first see the headline and click through. It’s definitely a time saver and makes the entire process for me more enjoyable. I’ve been using it for the past 3 or 4 days and really like it. I guess well find out soon enough if digg has a problem with this tool or not. lol ;-)

      You can use BookmarkingDeamon to do this. It will do a lot of them automatically, but others you need to type captchas in for. It’s been around for some time and get updated whenever any of the sites change their system.

  • Hey Gerald
    Somehow after Digg stopped Shouting I got disconnected from Digg.
    Though subdiggerplus seems to be a good option for me and people like me (Lazy pplz ) ;)
