BlingBoard Brings All Your Social Media to One Widget

When MotoBlur first came out, many reviewers agreed that having that much Social Media in one spot was confusing and unfavorable. However, there were many users who enjoyed having all their Facebook and Twitter feeds in one place, as well as an inbox that contained all their texts, missed calls, and so on. With that in mind, Motorola removed most of this functionality from Motoblur, and fans of the original lost their all-in-one widget containing everything they wanted.The all-in-one widget has now made a roaring comeback, and no amount of negative reviews can squelch it this time. As an added bonus, the widget is now compatible with more than just Motorola phones.

XDA Senior Member eladizak has posted a thread about an application called BlingBoard, a social widget that takes your missed calls, Facebook and Twitter feeds, text messages and more and crams them into one widget at the convenience of the user. Unlike the first version of Motoblur where it was “too much, too fast”, this widget has actually received many positive reviews from the community.

The app itself is very simple. Simply install it from the Play Market, set up the widget and you’re hooked in to all of your social media, all in just one spot. The app has been designed with aesthetic appeal in mind, and users can expect a spacious, well laid out interface that displays all the info you need it to without feeling cramped. Not only can you see all the alerts, but you can even reply to them as well. Says the developer:

– Dial to your Missed Calls
– Reply to SMS messages
– Launch Gmail
– Facebook: Check links directly from the widget (YouTube videos will launch the YouTube App, etc..)
– Twitter: Check links directly from tweets
– Simply launch the related app when no notifications.

So it’s really a nifty application for those who miss the days where everything went into one spot, and especially those users who could use some of their screen real estate back from having several individual widgets.

For more information and discussion, check out the application thread.
