The problem: When I goto the toilet at work, there is no signal at all, so my smart phone isn't particularly useful at the times it should be.

The solution: Run an app via a button/shortcut/widget that forces Twitter, Facebook, Gmail, Google+ etc to update before I go so I have some reading material.

Does such an app exist?

You want to update it after your done with your toilet business? Din't quite understand when you want this button! – Aadi Droid Sep 7 '11 at 9:44
Sorry, meant before I go; clarified that now. – Dunhamzzz Sep 7 '11 at 9:49
i can't think of anything but tweetcaster, one app jus open it once and it updates your fb and twitter. – Aadi Droid Sep 7 '11 at 10:24

Settings -> Accounts and sync -> Sync All (bottom left). This will sync every app that register there, like Facebook, Twitter, Gmail and Google+, but not all the apps.
