The Seesmic application for Android is actually slightly smaller than the official Twitter client, a lot smaller than the official Facebook client and yet offers easy access to the two services. With the added functionality of viewing friends lists from all of your accounts in one easy to find place, Seesmic surely has the upper hand.

If you really love Seesmic, there’s a Seesmic Pro version available for $2.99 [No Longer Available] which will unlock new features and remove ads.

    I'm a little late to this party but I wanted to post anyway. I tried Seesmic, but for whatever reason went back to TweetDeck. I'm surprised there aren't more apps that integrate Twtitter and FB. What I like about TweetDeck is that the mobile app differentiates content from the two services (FB posts have a blue background, Tweets are dark gray, all in the same 'timeline' view.) I don't think Seesmic works that way. TD could use more widget options, but otherwise I have no complaints. Maybe Seesmic will add that as an option.

    I'm not a huge Twitter user so perhaps Seesmic wins over TweetDeck in that regard. Plus I think Twitter now owns TweetDeck, so there's that.

    I've tried Seesmic several times and it looks good but I still go back to Ubersocial.
    Why? Since it's the only Twitter app that have a real "exit" option that works.

    All other apps that I have tested will still run even if you choose to quit or exit and update in the background. Only way to quit is to "force close" them.
    I have tested this on several phone and different Android versions. No luck.

      I think it's odd that so many Twitter apps would not have this as an option. Thanks for letting us know!
