Do you ever feel like you need another Twitter client in your life? Or maybe you need to replace the one you've been using with something fast, functional, and clean. Either way, Digital Ashes' Tweet Lanes app hit the Play Store recently, promising pure Twitter and pure Android side by side. Indeed, the app delivers on both fronts, having consistent smooth functionality and a UI that sharply adheres to the oft-aggrandized ICS design guidelines.

Besides its performance and aesthetic acumen, Tweet Lanes has several handy features, including automatic media previews, a (somewhat) persistent tweet bar, and the ability to interact with multiple tweets at once, among others.

Thanks, Rohan!

    Okay, can someone explain to me why no other Twitter client uses "push-notification" like the official Twitter for Android one? Nearly every fricking iOS Twitter client uses push-notifications, why is it so hard to support it on Android?

    • Brian Kirby

      Twitter restricts the push API and only allows their client to use it.

    • Don

      Because until recently it wasn't available for the platform.

      Plume, Carbon and Boid have all been waiting to get access to the Site Streams API, which is needed for push notifications.

      tl;dr to have push, you need access from Twitter one way or another and for some reason Twitter aren't forthcoming providing access for Android apps.

        Your tl;dr us longer than the original post.

          I know :P that wasn't intended, but it just...happened lol

    • Tony

      Perhaps the reason these apps are waiting for access from Twitter is because IMO Twitter are getting ready to make big changes to their API which may mean that apps such as this , plume, boid etc no longer exist.

      Twitter have been quite clear saying not to build Twitter clients. AFAIK an announcement is due in the next few weeks

    Apps that utilize proper Android design guidelines should be rewarded with more downloads and exposure!

    Better than Boid I think? At least, has the same idea (ICS Twitter), but its not Alpha...

    • http://twitter.com/redbullcat Phil Oakley

      Boid isn't alpha, it's beta.

    So far its great, pretty basic but the Dev said more features are coming soon. I was able to get free updates for life too. :D

  • Paito Anderson

    I wish the this or the official Twitter app had tablet support.

    • Jim

      Agree.

  • Mark Hands

    This is a very nice Twitter client, it's certainly not perfect with missing conversation view but for a new release, it's a great start and only makes me confident that future versions will make it even better. Some good Twitter clients coming to the Android platform, especially with Carbon beta just around the corner. All we need is a good Twitter client that also has a good tablet layout AND follows the Android 4.x design guidelines.
