Twidroid 3.0 for Android coming early December
Even though I wasn’t initially enamored with Twitter, I have come around in the last year. While I’m still by no means a twit-a-holic, I do find myself spending more and more time on the popular micro-blogging network. Since I jumped ship from my iPhone to the Android platform, I’ve been looking far and wide for a comparable Twitter client. Twidroid has generally been crowned the top Android Twitter app, though unfortunately isn’t even close to Tweetie 2 for the iPhone. Now I’m not saying this to knock Twidroid, I’m merely stating that the Android Twitter apps need more time and refinement. Along these lines, I mentioned a nifty app called Touiteur a few days ago. This Twitter app (still in development) looks to be one of if not the best Android Twitter app once released. Obviously the developers behind Twidroid don’t want to see that and have formerly announced that Twidroid 3.0 is coming. Coming when? “Early December”. Now I have two Twitter apps to keep my eyes on. Being the spec hounds that you are, I’m sure you want some hard info. The new specs include:
- Threaded conversations
- Twidroid plugins + examples on our website (e.g. google maps, support any photo service)
- Single tweet view with extended infos
- Remember timeline position setting
- Jump to top in timeline button
- Autocomplete usernames for replies
- Bring up tweet box directly by typing @
- DM list now with avatars
So after looking at the list above, and checking out that earlier post I mentioned about Touiteur, we can see that both of these apps are approaching the whole Twitter scene differently. Twidroid is continuing it’s strong presence with more functionality. Touiteur being the newcomer is bringing a rather large feature list as well as a more visually pleasing, clean UI. Is Twidroid’s UI in need of refinement? To some that’s debatable. Personally I’m finding the UI in Touiteur a bit more finger friendly and clean. But again, that’s my preference. Still, it doesn’t take away from the robust feature set of Twidroid 3.0. When all is said, which app has your most interested: Twidroid 3.0 or Touiteur?

For every site you find on the internet telling of a so called “Google Phone” — the ultimate Android phone according to Google’s own tastes — one can find just as many if not more sites debunking such rumors with the most popular reasoning being that Google would hurt 3rd party partners. Because of [...]
Twitter has reshaped communication in recent years in that it brought the extremely fast communication method of texting and opened it up to the world. Now faster than ever, ideas and thoughts can be shared with not just a few, but the whole world. What once was a small community of geeks and [...]

Think what you will, but navigation apps are pretty much reaching the end of the “feature ladder”. That is, there really isn’t much else you can add to GPS/navigation apps or hardware that will make it any more beneficial. Sure you can find ways to connect the device to more aspects of our [...]

If you were eyeing your non-Android 2.0 device because of it’s lack of exciting features — namely Google Navigation — Google would like to extend a welcome Happy Thanksgiving to you. The cause for celebration…? Google has gone ahead and ported Google Navigation backwards to Android 1.6 (Donut) devices. Oh happy day. [...]
One of the few faults I have with the Android platform is the lack of killer apps and polished apps. But one app by Levelup Studios called “Touiteur” looks like it will finally bring awesome functionality and eye candy. Ok, I’ll admit that this app does take some iPhone-esque styling cues. Even [...]
The Motorola Motus, leaked in all of it’s glory. We talked earlier about Motorola falling into a “Razr Rut” in regards to getting stuck on one design and beating it long past it’s expiration date. With that said, the first interesting feature of the Motus is that it’s not a “traditional slider” but [...]
As much as I love Android, I will admit that it’s far from perfect. There are some lag issues on even top notch hardware like the Droid and the bread and butter of the mobile world, the app scene, just isn’t as matured as it is on the iPhone. At a an investor [...]
Does the Motorola Motus show Moto returning to their “Razr Rut”? 2-4 years of Cliq/Droid/Motus-like copies ahead?
Looking at Motorola’s new design path that started with the Clique, moved to the Droid, and now appears on a third leaked device called the “Motus”, one unfortunate realization is materializing — Motorola is heading for another Razr Rut. A rut in which they get stuck on one popular design, unable to move forward and ultimately hurting themselves in the long run. Is the sliding qwerty keyboard design Moto’s new Razr Rut II?
