Hello Guys, I've searched through all threads about the friend stream, and there is not much documented on how to access it. A poster on this thread mentioned the Twitter Sense app. Another said that there is no dedicated app in the app tray to launch it, but it is there. HTC just made it hard to access. If the following had been mentioned before, I apologize, I did do a search, but found nothing.
From what I've figured, using the search function within the App Tray, came up with zero results. Using the Google search widget....I typed in "Friend Stream", and lo and behold, the app shows up (App icon being the two white silhouettes of people on a Blue background). Click on it and it is the Friend Stream app.
Access to Friend Stream is also imbedded in another widget. It is called the Social Clock. I accidentally stumbled into this while searching through the whole list of available widgets. It pretty much is the HTC signature clock, but without the date and weather. It is just the time and below the time, the most recent status update from your Facebook feed. Clicking on this part of the widget will get you into the Friend Stream app.
I hope that this helps. One of the great things I think a lot of people liked about the Friend Stream widget from before, was that you were able to update a status directly through the widget without going into a separate app, just right there on the widget. Another, is the unique tag that HTC phone users are given underneath their status update, letting people know that HTC Sense was used.
I might make a new thread, explaining these methods, so that many Inc 4G users will know how to do this, until a Rom makes the widget available or for those who choose to stay with the stock Rom. I'm getting the impression, that not many know of this and are just using the stock FB app. Lemme know if this works for you guys!
