Twitter for Android
Official Twitter client comes to Android – but only for 2.1 users
Twitter for Android Review
by on May 7, 2010
It’s not surprising that the folks behind Twitter decided to release an official app for Android but the problem is that, even though it is official, there are a number of other great apps out there that let you access Twitter and offer great functionality.
With this in mind, Twitter had to come up with something awesome to get people to migrate to its service. Luckily the app it’s released is something of a revelation for Android users – a functional yet fun piece of software to use.
The UI of the app will be instantly familiar to Twitter users. Here you can tweet, retweet, look at lists, your profile and what messages and mentions you have.
Drill into the options screen and you can set how often the app updates from Twitter.
Yes it looks a touch cartoony, but it works. Load this app up on your phone and it integrates itself into the handset. Essentially this means you can flick through your contacts and see who has updated their Twitter accounts – a nice touch.
While tweeting and receiving works a charm, though, there are no multiple accounts and you can’t retweet and add your own comment. And the fact that it is only available for Android 2.1 and above is also a touch frustrating.
Saying that, if you are packing the Éclair OS, then this is the Twitter app for you.
