Twidroyd Is Dead – Long Live UberSocial


Not sure how this one flew under my radar but popular Twitter app Twidroyd is no more. Seems the good folks at UberSocial have combined forces with the Twidroyd team for their own release of UberSocial in the Android Market. Rather than spending precious time and manpower on building their own Twitter app from scratch, Twidroyd will essentially be rebranded as UberSocial with a few tweaks and enhancements.

UberSocial has long been known as one of the best Twitter clients for iPhone and Blackberry with premium features and functionality. Combine that with arguably one of the best Twitter apps for Android and viola. Instant magic.

If you were a long time Twidroyd devotee, don’t worry. UberSocial has a “Twidroyd theme” for those of you that liked the old look and if that’s not enough, you can still grab the old version of Twidroyd Legacy from the Android Market although, it will no longer see updates. For Twidroyd Pro users, UberSocial had these intructions posted on their blog:

If you are a former Twidroyd Pro User: please leave Twidroyd Pro on your phone so that when we make changes to UberSocial for Android in the next few weeks, your phone’s device # will automatically trigger the premium version of UberSocial for Android. Currently, there is no difference between regular and premium versions of UberSocial for Android.

You can find UberSocial in the Android Market right now for absolutely free. If you have a chance to check it out, leave your thoughts in the comments. Oh- and you can follow me on Twitter: @Gamercore.

  1. I tried it… it is buggy and awkward. Their “premium features” are also included in pretty much every other twitter app that’s out there anyway. Also, it installs Twidroyd for some reason even though I don’t get why the app would need two apps to run

  2. I keep trying other Twitter apps, but I always end up going back to Tweetdeck

    1. I’m the same but with Twicca =p

      1. Twicca is awesome on phones. I wonder if the developer will ever come out w/ a tablet version?!

  3. I used twitdroyd ever since before the rename. for some reason ever since they added in the tablet view thing, it became too buggy. Switched to Plume, and I think i’ll no longer need to start up a twitter app anymore. Plume’s 4×4 widget is just excellent.

  4. Can’t even get the thing to open. Immediate force close every time on the LG Optimus V.

  5. Tweetdeck all the way.

  6. I have tested other Twitter clients as well. I love Twicca but it has no support for multi-user/multi-account… I tried Twidroyd and deleted it after a day. Tweetdeck is still the number one client for me.

  7. twicca is the best twitter client out there..

  8. Would be nice if we were still allowed to install Twidroyd Pro. Shows up in my market, but no install button.


  9. Much prefer Plume

  10. I used the official Twitter app before I found Tweetcaster. Then they had Tweetcaster Pro for free a few months back on Amazon and I never looked back. Also, what do “Viola”s have to do with anything. I think he meant “voila”

  11. Seesmic. I’m going to mess with this Uber thing for a sec, my wife has a blackberry and swears by ubersocial. But I know I’ll end up going back to Seesmic.

  12. Cannot get twidroyd on my samsung galaxy ace
