Features & Functionality

The free Twitter application for Android surprisingly comes with more than enough features to make even the avid twitter users fall in love. Many users were angry with Twitter when they temporary shutdown the rest of the competition before launching their application, but now, there’s no one else that does twitter better than twitter.

The Application for Android users is shockingly amazing in every aspect. Aside from the basic tweet, retweet, and direct message feature, there’s still much to do in the application. First thought when using the application is “wow, this is easy to navigate, very clean, and fast.” That’s because the current tweeter application is filled with smooth animated transitions, sound effects for different actions, and a lightweight package that helps it load and work pretty smoothly.

Now after your first moments of owe are over, the application saves you time and effort by going through your contact and finding your friends that have a twitter account and giving you an option to follow them. This is very convenient for those first time tweeter users, and others that aren’t even sure which of their friends might be a user. After the initial setting up process the application takes you to your twitter feed where you’ll have everything show up from in a long list. Using gestures and long holds, you can interact with each tweet and the person that tweeted it. Sending a tweet is very quick, simple, and comes with some useful options to choose from. The option to geo-tag your tweet, mention someone, and include a video or image file are also available on the same screen.

The feature list goes on for miles, but the main focus is getting your tweets sent and the application can certainly do that.

Conclusion

I have never been much of a twitter user, not a fan o their site, but this application has made me a frequent user. Thanks to the great design, and easy to use user interface this has quickly become one of my most used applications next to Facebook.
