If you’re a mobile Twitter user, I’m sure you are aware of the huge amount of Twitter clients there are available to download on Google Play. But here’s one that’s really worth your attention.
Developer HandlerExploit recently released an update for their Twitter client called Tweedle for Twitter. Although Tweedle was previously plagued by a bug that led to unexpected crashes, the new Tweedle fixes everything that was wrong with the app before, in addition to optimizing performance and updating the language translations.
Tweedle offers users a smooth and modern interface with the opportunity to customize notifications, edit synchronization options and change the color scheme of the app. Tweedle has a very simple interface, with smooth transitions and pull to refresh functions. The main timeline scrolls smoothly and displays tweets in the same way the Twitter webpage does. Pictures and videos show up as a direct link to a webpage – but when you tap on a tweet, it shows you the image in an expanded view. Swiping in from the edge reveals an account switcher, this is particularly useful if you manage multiple accounts on your phone. Swiping in from the left reveals mentions and direct messages.
Tweedle allows users to customize their notifications. Users can do this is by setting up notification preferences – this allows you to separate updates and notification rules for each timeline, mentions and direct messages for each account. For example if you set your timeline to update every 2 minutes in the background, but set your direct messages not to update in the background.
Tweedle also allows users to set custom themes, there are 5 preloaded themes – however there’s also a complete set of customization options which enable you to create your own theme. When creating your own theme you have the ability to change the background, menus, headers, scroll bars and link text to whatever color you want.
Tweedle for Twitter is very similar to the Official Twitter application as it provides the user with a basic set of functions, however it’s more advanced giving users the ability to customize their notifications and change the in-app themes. If you haven’t already checked out Tweedle, I would advise you to by clicking the source link below – it’s free to download!
