    Guys,

    I'm after something I'm not sure exists. I use LauncherPro and use the "Friends" widget to show the Facebook and Twitter feed (scrollable) on one of my screens.

    The downside however is that you can't post a pic/video from here. You must use a different application which means having all your tweets/status downloaded again. just isn't tidy!

    So my question is, is there an application out there that houses a wdiget that shows Twitter/Facebook timeline (scrollable) and allows you to post natively from the application, pictures/videos/links?

    Tweetdeck does this however the widget to view the feeds is shocking and shows next to nothing!

    Any help greatly appreciated

    I agree, I am also on the lookout. Mainly the facebook/twitter integration in a functional widget.

    I think because most send vids or images directly from the gallery. The LP widget is only meant to be a reader, not really a full blown app.

    I'm looking for this too! I like some of the functionality of the LP+ Friends widget but LP+ has been running really slow lately and doing a lot of FCs. So, I went back to ADW.Launcher and can't believe how much faster it is. I know that LP is getting a complete rewrite so I may end up going back to it eventually but I'd LOVE a great widget to go with the likes of Tweetdeck. I tried Pure Messenger but it just doesn't have the functionality either...can't even "like" something on FB.

    If anyone runs across something like this, please share!!!

    I could add this to Pure messenger widget ... but I am not sure that it is a good idea.
    I think a widget should remain simple ... and should not become a full app.

    For features of Pure messenger, they are driven by users requests. so, if you don't ask, you don't get :
