    Looking for a widget similar to the Launcher Pro Plus "Friends" widget, or the Moto Blur Gingerbread Social Networking widget, one that allows me to see both Twitter and FB activity in a single widget, either in a scrollable list (preferred) or in a one-by-one flicklist view.

    The Launcher Pro Plus widget would be fine, but the type is just too small and isn't adjustable.

    Has anyone seen a widget that allows you to see both twitter and FB posts in a scrollable window or similar view? Searching the market comes up with twitter or FB-only options, but not one that combines both.

    Thanks for any suggestions...

    Tweetdeck? Does as many social apps as you have loaded into it as far as I understand.

    Pure Widget loads FB, Twitter, Gmail, POP mail, SMS, calls. And it is skinnable.

    Thanks...as a reminder I'm looking for widgets, wasn't sure if the Tweetdeck recommendation includes a widget.

    I'll check Tweetdeck and Pure Widget.

    Thanks!

    Edit: Thought Pure Widget sounded familiar, I bought it years ago when I first got my D1, and had stopped using it a while back...it's had some very nice updates and is a much better option now. And you can select the font size. :)

    Turns out the Pure Messenger widget has refresh issues - repeatedly shows up w/zero entries when waking up the phone.

    So I'm using Tweetdeck...the widget isn't quite what i wanted but it gives me quick access to the app which has a very nice, clean interface.

    Paid version of Colorize Widget has a 'timeline' widget, which combines facebook & twitter feeds. You can also have it include SMS, i believe. It has a bunch of options for themes and colors (obviously, heh). Plus a bunch of other scrollable widgets too.

    Yes, I made it an obnoxious bright green, but you can pretty much pick any color, or make it transparent, or hide the header completely. Can also change the color & transparency of the background, and the font color. Tap on the message to view & post comments. Post to fb & twitter from the widget.

    First app I ever paid for, & never regretted it :)
