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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Did Samsung Out The Tablet-Optimized Official Twitter App During Unpacked?

Hold on to your hats, boys and girls – things are about to get real. Since the dawn of time, we've been asking – nay, demanding – an official Twitter app with tablet optimizations. Just when we thought our pleas were going unheard, Samsung unintentionally showed us what's up during its Unpacked event today at IFA.

Twitter Launches Official Play Store Beta - Sign Up Now To Get New Features Before Anyone Else

A number of social apps have turned to the Play Store to manage their betas. We've already seen Facebook and Snapchat launch official beta versions to anyone who signs up for the privilege, and now Twitter is doing the same. If you've signed up for either of the other programs, the routine should feel pretty familiar. The experimental build will replace the current Twitter app on your phone, unlike the Chrome beta that can exist side-by-side with the stable release.
