Twitter for Android Gets Design Overhaul to Bring User Interface and Experience Closer to Desktop


Twitter for Android has gotten yet another update. This one’s another overhaul in both design and functionality. Four tabs bring all that Twitter has to offer – Home, Connect, Discover and Me. Home is just your streaming timeline of incoming tweets.

Connect is where you can find not only your mentions, but notifications about new followers, retweets and direct messages. Discover is where you find the ever-so-popular trending topics, the search function and a place to get suggestions for new accounts to follow.

Finally, the Me tab is pretty much your profile. Update your photo, your information, see who you’re following and who’s following you, manage lists, privacy and more are all possible under this tab.

It really simplifies the mobile experience and it’s about as aesthetically pleasing as the Twitter application has ever been. You can find the update in the Android market (the web Market is not showing the update yet but it’s there).

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.

  3. finally this gets updated!  much needed

  4. Woah.. people are REALLY hating on the update. Personally, I use Twicca. 

    I do agree with some of the comments on the big blue bar at the top. Really, what’s the point of that? Lol

  5. I have no problem with it. People are just too picky.

    1. Maybe you’re just not picky ENOUGH ;D

  6. Tried it, still prefer tweetcaster pro. 

  7. Facebook: this is war bitch. I got more people on my site!

    Twitter: suck it. Your site is boring

    Google: I can make one too! See

    MySpace: :-(

  8. i don’t like the update. *sigh* they just dont care

  9. I prefer the update. I *hated* it before: terrible fonts, non-functioning refresh, and those stupid tear-away actions where you have to remove the tweet you want to act on from the screen before you can act on it.

    The update’s not perfect, but I think it’s a big improvement.
