    Hello, I'm transitioning from a Blackberry Curve to the HTC Eris. One of my favorite apps is SocialScope, which integrates Twitter and Facebook into one application.

    Is there an equivalent application for Android devices?

    Thanks.

    I loved socialscope as well. Miss it. I would be interested in something like that if found.

    As of right now there is nothing similar to SocialScope. I'm wondering if Seesmic for Android (new Twitter client) will eventually come out with a Facebook/Twitter client app.

    I'm currently using Seesmic as my Twitter app, so that would be great if they could add the functionality to incorporate Facebook.

    How does Seesmic compare to Twidroid? Using the latter at present and getting on ok with it, but always like to see what else is out there :)

    I've tried Twidroid and Seesmic. Both are very similar, but with the acquisition of ping.fm, I feel Seesmic has more upside in the long run.

    Installed Seesmic and going with this fro the time being. Only thing I can see missing is the autocomplete of the usernames when trying to send a tweet to someone rather than a reply. If it did this I would uninstall Twidroid!

    I would love to find this app also. That is the only app that I really miss from the Blackberry.

    I'm giving vodafone update a try on my Eris. Not nearly as refined as Socialscope, but better than anything else I've seen for Android so far.

    Same here..Vodafone update was the best I could find.

    It does seem to miss Facebook posts that are just Photos though.

    I noticed that Vodafone update used to work better on Blackberry. Hopefully a new version with fixes is on its way (for Android).

    I've been using Vodafone Update, and it works alright, but I'm still looking for something a bit more robust. Has anyone found anything better?

    Just wondering if anyone has found another app besides Vodafone Update that brings both Twitter and Facebook feeds together?

    Your best bet is going to getsocialscope.com and signing up for the Droid beta. No word on when it might start but hopefully after Blackberry version is finally released. I miss it too.

    I know this is an old thread, but since someone bumped it I might as well add:

    TweetDeck is now available in beta form for Android, and Seesmic also brings Facebook, Twitter, and Google Buzz together.

    I have them both and I love them. I am about to uninstall, though I love them both.

    Seesmic - seems to only update Twitter and Google Buzz (I don't use Google Buzz enough)

    TweetDeck - Updates all three (my fav) and show timelines feeds for each, but it keeps forceclosing and getting error messages. I even get a dump message when I'm not using it.

    So, for now I'm going to stick with TweetCaster Pro (which I can do FB & Twitter), just will not get the timeline of FB.
