Editors' review

Twitter for Android gives you full access to Twitter without opening your browser, but it's also specifically designed for mobile use. Recent updates include improved Search displays, and Home, Activity, and Discover are now accessible when you swipe Timelines.

Pros

Built for Android: Twitter for Android bypasses Web browsers and any vulnerabilities in favor of integrated features. For example, it can send and receive photos privately in Messages.

Notifications: Twitter for Android's notifications appear in your device's notifications tray (with optional sound effects). We could configure custom notifications for specific accounts, so we wouldn't miss important tweets.

Cons

App versus mobile browser site: Twitter for Android and Twitter's mobile browser site offer essentially the same thing in a different style, so users who are comfortable using the latter might not benefit from the Android-specific app.

Bottom Line

Twitter for Android works great, but the browser version, though slightly different in appearance, also accesses Twitter perfectly well. Which you choose might just come down to a matter of preference. But Twitter for Android is free, and you can always access your Twitter account from any active browser, so what's wrong with having both?

    "Waste of precious screen real estate"

    December 21, 2011   |   By LoRdSkaRn

    Version: Twitter for Android (Official) 3.0

    Pros

    The previous version was great - lightweight, fast, clean uncluttered interface.
    The current version takes most of that away (see Cons)

    Cons

    - The large blue bar on top, and the four huge icons, are a waste of precious screen real estate, especially if you are using the app on phones and not a tablet.
    - Please remove unnecessary border around the content to allow more tweets to show on screen

    Summary

    Please allow users the option to go back to previous versions, or come up with a lightweight version.

    "This is not an App."

    June 12, 2010   |   By rdmcm

    Version: Twitter for Android (official) 1.0

    Pros

    I can't think of one.

    Cons

    Every time I attempted to use it, it loaded my browser. Every other time I tried to use it [within minutes of download] it required an update. But always the same update.

    Summary

    I was looking to find the actual App. to make my Twitter use more streamlined. Certainly not yet another reason to open my browser. I don't think this is worth the time at all.
