It's hard for a Twitter client to make a name for itself with the market so saturated with competitors, but maybe Neatly has a shot. This Twitter client isn't just delivering your Tweets; it lets you sort, filter, and highlight tweets in your timeline so you see more relevant information. This app has arrived on basically every other platform (even Symbian and BlackBerry 10), but the developers have now offered up a beta Android version for you to try in advance of the actual release.

2013-02-12 16.18.16 2013-02-12 16.18.54 2013-02-12 16.19.52

Neatly claims to be a smarter Twitter client. It scans your timeline and can build you an interest-based experience rather than just showing you everything. It includes a few different filters so you can create multiple custom timelines as well. If you check out a profile, Neatly even estimates how much your interests overlap with this other person's. There are also various statistics about how each person uses Twitter. For example: link usage, spam tweets, and influence all feed into your "style."

This app is pretty explicitly a beta. Don't expect to be able to use Neatly as your full time Twitter client. There is no widget, no notifications, and the UI is a little awkward right now. Neatly is an interesting app, so check out the link below for the download. Just make sure you have "Unknown sources" checked in your device settings.

      And it won't be the last. Haven't you heard about Sesame Street's new Twitter client? It narrates each tweet with Big Bird's voice.

        I would buy that, in a heartbeat.

    Are there any twitter clients that allow you to see your favorites and retweets together, like the official twitter app connections tab?

    Hey lads, Pleased to hear from you. The app is currently in the beta version. It's now being revamped so you can feel free to try it out and send us your feedback, inquires and propositions on #Neatly hashtag or @neatlyapp

      I use Twitter only once in a blue moon since I haven't found features I need in any client. See if you can implement these -

      1. List view - Just like timeline, I should be able to tap any of my "Lists" and see tweets from that list.

      2. Universal filter - No matter which view I'm in, I should be able to filter out content.

      • Mustafa Maged Sayed

        Regarding the list view, it's doable. We will take it into our considerations.

        Secondly, let me know in details what are the filters you look for? As you have in Custom timeline filters to view:

        1. Tweets with links.
        2. Tweets with media
        3. Tweets with location.
        and so on.

        • http://geniousatplay.blogspot.com/ Bikram Agarwal

          Sounds like the filters you mentioned are "show" filters. (show tweets with links, show tweets with media and so on).
          I'm asking for "hide" filters. i.e. "hide tweets with links" etc.

          Any word filter would be good too. Say, I have a "Android Blogs" list. And I'm tired of reading all "Galaxy S4" related news all day. So, I wanna check my "Android Blogs" list, but don't want any tweet which mentions "Galaxy S4". So, I go to Exlude filter, enter "Galaxy S4" there and it will be hidden from the list.

          • Mustafa Maged Sayed

            Yeah, I got it. We can take it in our considerations to be included in the upcoming versions. Neatly is made for the prospect's convenience. :)

            Thanks. If these are incorporated in the app, I'll use it till the end of times. :)
