White Nexus 5 And Possible November 1 Release Date Tipped By @evleaks

It looks like last night's press shot of the Nexus 5 from @evleaks wasn't the only morsel of Nexus news we were meant to receive this weekend, after all. Our favorite gadget leaker has provided another treat, this time sharing a press shot of the white (well... black and white) Nexus 5, along with a possible release date - "11/1".

This render looks more refined than @evleaks' shot of the black Nexus 5 and, while the front remains black, the new shot makes the white N5 look downright appealing.

Of course, it isn't completely clear whether the "11/1" in @evleaks' tweet refers to a launch date or an announcement.

T-Mobile HTC One Is Scheduled To Get Its Android 4.3 Update On October 21st

If you've wanted to know when the Android 4.3 update is coming to the HTC One, HTC Americas president Jason Mackenzie is the man to follow. It's from him that we first found out about the latest version of Android coming to our favorite aluminum handset this fall, and he was the one who provided more specific ETAs as time went on. Now he's revealed that the Android 4.3 update is scheduled to roll out to T-Mobile HTC One owners this upcoming Monday, the 21st.

Mackenzie announced earlier this week that T-Mobile customers could expect the 4.3 update within a handful of days, but things apparently hit a snag, and now the release has been pushed back until Monday.

More Twitter Beta App Tweaks: Consolidated Tweet Buttons And A Lot Of Crashing

Twitter has been steadily tweaking their beta release channel for the Android app, and the latest update removes one of the most poorly-received features from the last beta version. The translucent tri-button array at the bottom of the screen (post a photo from storage, take a photo, or a simple textual tweet) has been removed, and is now replaced with a single, consolidated button.

New on the left, old on the right. Pardon the different resolutions.

That button will also become semi-hidden when you scroll through your Twitter feed, giving you that much more room to see your tweets. Nice.

A Tablet Version Of Twitter For Android Is Coming By The End Of The Year - Still Only On The 2014 Galaxy Note 10.1 For Now

Today Twitter has officially introduced the long-awaited tablet version of their Android app, and it should look pretty familiar. This UI was first leaked during the Samsung Unpacked event last month in Germany, but Twitter kept their lips sealed regarding the issue. Now the company is ready to show off their new Android tablet UI to the world, only you will still need a 2014 Galaxy Note 10.1 in order to use it.

This landscape view allows for much more content to fit on screen at once. Clicking on a tweet with multimedia attached will expand photos, videos, and article previews on the right side.

Plume For Twitter 5.4 Update Adds Push Notifications, Unread Counts, And A Few Other Tweaks

Flashier Twitter apps have come and gone, but I'm still pretty enamored with Plume. One reason is that the developer (LevelUp, of Beautiful Widgets fame) is constantly rolling out new features, and today's update adds a doozie: push notifications. You should get notifications for new tweets, replies, mentions, and messages more or less instantly, and the widget and main feed can now use a "Live Stream" mode.

The service experimented with push background notifications before, but the developer wasn't satisfied with the battery-hungry feature. The new implementation shouldn't have a negative impact on your battery. The feature is off by default in Plume 5.4: to enable push notifications and "live streaming" in the main app view and widget, go to Settings, General, Live Stream Mode, and set it to Always.

Latest Twitter Beta Update Shakes Up The UI Again – Removes Hamburger Navigation, Simplifies Tabs, And Adds Floating Buttons

Most developers who use the Google Play beta program don't seem to make monumental changes, but Twitter is really taking the beta label seriously. A few weeks after rolling out a completely new UI to the beta app, Twitter has updated the interface substantially again. It's cleaner in some places, but less so in others.

Neatly For Twitter Is Now Free On The Google Play Store

The Neatly Twitter client has been making a small but dedicated fanbase for a while now, though it's been available on Android for less than a year. Last week developer F16 Apps decided to pursue a new strategy, and the various versions of Neatly (Android, iOS, and Blackberry 10) are now free. The previous price on the Play Store has shifted between one and two dollars American.

Neatly includes most of the whiz-bang features of a modern Twitter client, but its focus is on intelligent filtering of Twitter feeds. The app can compare your Twitter history to any other user and find common interests, sort your main feed by relevance to you instead of a simple list, and group similar tweets by topic.

Twitter Beta Updated To v5.0 – New UI With Hamburger Navigation, But Still No Tablet Optimization [Update: APK Download]

If you're in Twitter's Android beta program, better grab the nearest Android device and check for updates. The official Twitter client has been updated with a completely new interface, and it's not the one leaked at the Samsung IFA event. This version has Android-style tabs, in-line media previews, hamburger navigation, and a proper action bar.

Leaked Tablet-Optimized Twitter App From The Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition Shows Up Online [Download]

At last week's IFA Conference in Berlin, Germany, Samsung showed off a tablet-optimized version of the official Twitter app while talking up all the features the the 2014 Edition Note 10.1 has to offer. Of course, at the time we weren't sure if this was just a mockup or screenshot mishap on Samsung's part (it does look exactly like the iPad's version of the app, after all), but it now appears that it's indeed the real deal. German Android site AndroidNext has gotten its hands on a leaked copy of the apk, which seems to be fully-functioning.

A couple of caveats to be aware of if you plan on installing this, however:

  • It installs over the existing Twitter app, so you may need to clear data to get it working properly.
