Porch social widget

☆☆☆ A better scrolling social widget for Android! ☆☆☆
Browse your Facebook and Twitter feed on your homescreen, in an infinite scrolling widget!

Porch gives you buttery smooth scrolling through hundreds of feed items in your Twitter and Facebook news stream. Right on your homescreen or lock screen, without needing to open a dedicated app. You can also post a status update in one click from the widget, and add a photo & location.

This app is 100% FREE - there are no ads, no tracking and no information is sent to ANY third party. Your login is secure, authentication is done directly to Twitter/ Facebook, so this app does *not* ask you for any passwords.

☆☆☆ Features: ☆☆☆

✓ See your Twitter and Facebook stream on your homescreen (launcher) or lockscreen
✓ Like, Retweet, favorite, and view posts in the browser or native app
✓ Compose new tweet/ post, with photo & location
✓ Reply/ comment on posts
✓ View images in post details

Why did I build Porch? Because all of the other social feed widgets suck. They either freeze, are bloated with useless 'features' or you have to pay to get both Twitter and Facebook in a single widget.

This widget is highly optimized for battery life and low memory consumption. You won't see the cache blow up or your battery life die because of this widget. No ANRs, I promise! It is optimized for Nova Launcher but will work fine with all of the popular launchers - Trebuchet, LauncherPro, Nova, ADW Launcher, HTC Sense etc.

Another Twitter feature lacking in most widgets:
Twitter posts show the "real" location of links (not the t.co URLs) and add hyperlinks for @mentions and #hashtags when you view post details.

This app is still in beta, so improvements are probably coming!

Future improvements MAY include:
☆ Improved layouts for tablets/ landscape orientation
☆ Other social feeds like Tumblr or Instagram

Follow @PorchApp on Twitter for support, latest updates and access to beta testing!

This app is in active development and I'm happy to add new features. I *might* release a paid premium version at some point in the future, but I promise this version will *always* remain free and *never* contain any ads!
