The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Yep. Saw this earlier this morning. Great update. I like how you can finally customize the (horribly named) UberBar. This is prob one of the best twitter apps out there for Android. There are a nut ton to choose from, but after trying MANY DIFFERENT ONES for long periods of time, this is by far my fav.

  2. New app icon not so awesome. :p

  3. moved to twicca after twidroyd just became too cumbersome and the whole ‘insert hashtag username’ in the right place – man, it took 6 major versions to get to that?

    Hrrm.  Will try it again then.
