BlingBoard Social Widget, Combining Your Social Networks into One Sexy Widget

Let’s face it, it’s a pain in the rear to open up all of your individual social network applications, refresh your feeds, scroll through them and so on. BlingBoard takes your Gmail, Facebook and Twitter, then lumps them all into one pretty good looking widget.

You can also access your call feed and SMS messages too, so it’s a pretty solid app. We wish there was a way to extend the widget so you could get more posts on the same page, but maybe that can come in an update. Anyone here a big widget user that can put this to good use?

Cheers Kofiko!

    This looks interesting… will look into it

    OT: Lol… Priority of comments basically read 1) Icon set/wallpaper, pls! 2) Then the topic of the article

  • Oaxican509

    Wallpaper and icon set Please! :)

    • http://www.kovdev.com/ koveleski

      Both are in an unreleased set that I’m currently working on. I’m sure Tato will let you all know once it’s available.

  • Yandroid

    Pretty sure motoblur does a version of this..funny

    • Paul

      Yeah it does. When it feels like working.

  • Chris Wilkey

    So far I think I’m in love with it…VERY well thought out…

  • Tim Buchanan

    Anybody know what icon pack he’s using in these images?  I dig them.

    • http://www.kovdev.com/ koveleski

      It’s called Lustre and I haven’t released it yet. Hopefully soon.

  • Jamaicawind

    What is that wallpaper you guys are using? i WANT IT!!! 

    • http://www.kovdev.com/ koveleski

      It’ll be included with my Lustre icon set once I get that released.

      • Jamaicawind

        please please please release it soon! ive been lusting over that wallpaper for ever! haha

  • David H.

    looks like no GV, nor G+ support yet.
    seems to be mad at me for not setting up the twitter app before installing it, so no twitter for me

    LIke this widget! Thanks for the heads up DL.

  • anezarati

    this app is no showing up in my “widgets” section of my GNex.  am i missing something here??

    • duke69111

      I’m not seeing it either.  

    • huskerhog

      The widget showed up on my RAZR.  This app is great.  Although you can’t delete g-mail from the widget, you can scroll through to see the messages.

    • anezarati

      had to restart my phone and it showed up

  • DixieNormus69

    dat wallpaper

  • JMonkeYJ

    any social widget that is non-scrollable is a no-go for me. currently using the APW family of widgets, and they are serviceable but not excellent.

    • huskerhog

      I just downloaded it and it scrolls on each app sideways.

      • JMonkeYJ

        interesting. maybe i will check it out. all the other social widgets i have are vertically scrolling (like the native G+ widget) which is nice for quick skimming. but horizontal scrolling might work. thanks.

  • Smooth918

    This sounds cool, you see that’s why I always double check DL before starting my late work day…Thanks!

    i wish they would add google+ in on of these social combine app/widgets. if they did i would actually use one

  • EvanTheGamer

    This looks pretty slick…will give it a whirl now.

  • Michael Rango

    What icon pack is thattttt

    • Deaunta Dukes

      I was wondering the same thing

    • Bassdj

      Unreleased icon set by Koveliski. Boss, right?

    • http://www.kovdev.com/ koveleski

      Icon set is Lustre and should be available somewhat soon. 

  • FortitudineVincimus

    I hate social networking and sharing and so by default, I hate this widget

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=25001493 Hank Godwin

      I hate most of your posts, so by default, I hate you.

    • Me

      So stop sharing, people hate you!

    • Smooth918

      Says the ^^Guy^^ that just shared on this Social Newtworking Form called Droid-Life :-)

    • dieringer scott

      What is your hatred towards sharing..

    • http://quiklives.tumblr.com quiklives

      Is there anything you don’t hate? I don’t recall a single time I’ve ever seen you say anything nice or positive.

  • http://www.Nave360.com Sebastian Gorgon

    Nice icons, MIUI? 

  • Palmer Nyako

    Is it still not possible to remove the Google bar?

  • http://twitter.com/Jason13L Jason Lassourreille

    I am pretty sure I was just asking for something like this! Trying it now, hope my dreams are met.

  • Boblank84

    reminds me of pure widgets which is very customization.and by the looks of it can handle most of the same social networks.

  • LiterofCola

    Like the fact that you can access your call history and sms

  • Kaizen_2012

    I liked the widget that LauncherPro had, combining in a scrollable list the twiiter and facebook feed.

    The Real Messenger widget and other for some reason are resource hogs, and never liked how they perform

    To bad this one isn’t a scrollable list

    • Greg Morgan

      Have you tried Android Pro Widgets? Basically the same thing as the LP widgets, without the launcher.

      • Kaizen_2012

        I did, I found it too laggy for some reason

        • Lakerzz

          Its been updated semi recently, and it seems a lot better than it was. I use it daily, and brings back the memories of the og w/ Launcher Pro

          • J450NM

            LP needs a MASSIVE update and soon…it seems so dated in comparison with Nova and the newer updated launchers out

          • skitchbeatz

            Good luck with that pipe dream.

          • scottybones

            GoLauncher Plus = Free and has hella widgets including one that looks like the LP one, only much better. When i found out about GoLauncher i left LP in a heartbeat. GL made LP look like an iphone hahaha

          • mtkregs

            Don’t hold your breath!  I’ve given up on all apps from this developer as they are NEVER updated anymore.

  • http://profiles.google.com/amgala Amar Gala

    Can you use a home replacement like Nova or Apex and resize the widget?

    • http://www.droid-life.com Tim-o-tato

      Tried that. All it did was center it. Lame :(

      • http://profiles.google.com/amgala Amar Gala

         Bummer!

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      Since you brought up launchers. What’s the best ICS launcher you think?

      • http://profiles.google.com/amgala Amar Gala

         I’ve been using Nova, although I’ve heard great things about Apex also.

        • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

          Yup Just downloaded Apex… Alot smoother than Nova for me. And I like the Drawer better because it actually mimics ICS all the way… even the widgets section.

  • http://twitter.com/MattCropley Matt Cropley

    what are those icons you are using? they look sexy

    • http://www.droid-life.com Tim-o-tato

      Tis an unreleased set from Kovdev. 

      • rblacula

        you should tell him to release it lol

        • http://www.kovdev.com/ koveleski

          Working on it, icons don’t make themselves ya know, lol.

  • JosephMoreno

    Doesn’t seem to have great reviews…. and your icon set?

    • http://www.kovdev.com/ koveleski

      Icon set is Lustre and is not yet available to the general public. It’s currently in progress.

  • plumed
