Tweet Lanes brings another option for Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean users


Finding Android 4.0+ apps is not an easy task yet so we’re always excited when we learn of new apps which take advantage of the new design guidelines Google introduced with the OS. A new option for Twitter clients has surfaced. Its name is Tweet Lanes, and it may soon bring a near-fully functional Twitter experience to those with the software to match.

While Boid is still in its pre-beta stages, Tweet Lanes appears to be much further along. It isn’t the most fleshed out Twitter experience in the world, but if you’ve been able to stomach Boid and its barebones offering, Tweet Lanes should get a serious look. It already has a 4.5 star rating in the Google Play Store.

Unfortunately things like custom settings are not yet available but we’re assured it’ll be coming very soon. For now, it’s a very polished app with some really innovative ideas (like the always-available contextual Tweet box that allows you to reply to a Tweet/mention a user, post a new Tweet, or send a direct message from the same box depending on what column you’re on.

Oh, and don’t even get me started on the ability to manipulate multiple Tweets at the same time. If these are the sort of features we have in such an early release I can’t wait to see what’s in store for the future.

Judging by its version number (0.1.9) we haven’t seen all of what the developer, Digital Ashes, has planned for it yet, but you can be sure we’ll be keeping our eyes on it. In fact, yours truly is just about ready to make this his daily Twitter app. If you want to give it a go be sure to download it from the Google Play Store.

PS: you’ll want to download this now. The developer will make some features premium-only later down the line, and if you have the app installed before then you’ll always get those features for free. Even if you don’t want it, it’s worth keeping on your phone for what it could soon become.

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. Went to play store but says “not compatible with this device”. Xoom with ICS.

    1. maybe it’s for phones only. i dunno…

  2. I actually like it. Downloaded it and am going to give it a try, looks promising

  3. Pure Android UI. Too bad notifications doesn’t works in this early stage… ;)

  4. awww says not supported on my tf pad 300. still early tho can’t imagine tablet support not coming eventually.

    1. I wouldn’t have a problem trying this app in “Compatibility Mode” on my TF300T. I use HootSuite now in compatibility mode. Doesn’t worry me if the interface is a little “spread-out”.

  5. Looking nice.

    About the “PS”, you must follow a few steps (which make you follow 2 twitter accounts and twit that you are trying the app), for getting the future premium features without paying

  6. I use it on my Galaxy S3 and have been quite impressed so far. Obviously there needs to be a few more tweaks here and there, but overall, one of the better twitter clients. I use this one all the time now.

  7. Like the interface, I’ll keep it around… Hopefully they will add trending topics

  8. I can’t find anywhere to download a image when im viewing it..How could this be missed?
