Want Something Like FriendStream? kAmMa’s Status Updater is Here!
In the world of Android, there is something for every taste and use. Social addicts (or socialites) represent a big chunk of the Android userbase. Anyone who Tweets about their day, or simply loves to update their Facebook status on how good they are currently feeling, simply cannot live without those. There are several available apps for both of the aforementioned social networks that work really well with Android, and there is one in particular that combines everything into one, which is unique to Sense and that is called FriendStream. People using AOSP roms like Cyanogen or MIUI don’t have the luxury of being able to simply install this app, so XDA member kamma decided to help out the community a bit and released kAmMa’s Status Updater. It works the same way as FriendStream does, although it doesn’t include as many social sites. However, if you are a Tweeter or a Facebook fan, this app will more than do. Moreover, it comes with a widget for your homescreen so that you can update your status in both without even having to open your app drawer.
If you are interested, simply download the apk and install it in your device. If you enjoyed it or found any bugs, please leave some feedback for the dev.
The purpose of this application is to show status updates (SocialStream Widget) and publish simultaneously statuses for both main social networks – Facebook and Twitter.
LauncherPro/ADW Manager as homescreen manager.

It’s not rare to see computer programmers with Linux partitions or Mac gamers that use bootcamp for their videogames. On computers, the process has gotten relatively simpler over time, with Microsoft and Apple typically supporting the notion....
