Seesmic for Android lets you manage Facebook, Twitter, and several other social networking services on your phone by viewing updates, receiving notifications, and sharing updates with your contacts. Now Seesmic 1.7 for Android is out, and it adds a number of new features including the ability to place shortcuts on your home screen for a number of actions including:

  • Accounts
  • Message composer
  • Searches
  • Lists
  • Facebook pages
  • Salesforce Chatter groups

Seesmic 1.7 also includes automatic translation, allowing you to read status updates from forign contacts in your current language. You can mark Twitter accounts as spam, and the app now lets you open links in Seesmic instead of dumping you out to a web browser.

There’s also an updated user interface which is optimized for tablets running Google Android 3.0 Honeycomb.

Seesmic for Android is available as a free download from the Android Market.
