The official Twitter app, the only one usable by a lot of people at once, has been updated today, and it’s a big update. Something all Android fans should be happy about is that Twitter now follows Holo UI standards! You can now swipe through the tabs and the whole UI is now a lot more flat. I won’t lie, it looks good. It just shows how versatile Holo is.
New in this release of Twitter for Android:
- We’ve got a brand new look and feel crafted for Android 4.0+. Navigate seamlessly between your favorite parts of Twitter with a simple swipe.
- It’s easier to connect with friends and join conversations with @username and #hashtag suggestions that appear as you search or compose a Tweet
- Discover, install and launch your favorite apps from Tweets
- Other bug fixes and improvements
You can also install apps straight from tweets now, and Twitter will help suggest @usernames and #hashtags while you’re tweeting and even searching. Then there is the standard “bug fix” entry. A word of warning: When you first start the app, it’ll get really laggy, but it smooths out after a few minutes, so don’t fret! Try it out and leave your thoughts in the comments.
