There are so many different third party twitter apps available in the market that a common person can easily get confused. If you are new to the android world then I would suggest you to stick to the original Twitter app so you can get used to it. However, if you are an advanced user and you want to make most out of your twitter experience then you have to rely on third party apps. One such app is called Twidere. This is relatively new app in the market but due to its functionality and great UI, I’m rating it higher than many old and proved twitter apps.
Introduction to Twidere
One thing that you must know about this app is that, it is still under development. Many new features will be added with the passage of time so you will have to wait for them. However, with limited features, this app has done a great business all over the world. I can confidently say that Twidere has got all those things that you need in a good twitter client and you will not be disappointed after using this app.
Tweeting, Re-Tweeting, Marking a tweet as favorite and showing mentions is done by all other apps but one of the most inspiring things about this app is that, it auto completes the name of a person to whom you are trying to mention in your tweet. It shows an inline image that is really helpful in many cases, if you are sharing a URL, the app will shorten it automatically. You can mute a user too, the app will auto refresh the timeline and also use multi-accounts in this app. Another interesting feature is that, you can customize the look of the app too.
The two main things that you will notice after opening the Twidere is its amazing user interface and loading speed. For me, fast loading of an app is the real deal. It doesn’t matter what kind of functions are performed by an app, if it doesn’t load quickly, it is not of no use to me. The UI of this app is really amazing too. Unlike other apps that fill up your screen with useless information just to prove a baseless point, this app shows you only as much information as you need and can easily absorb in one look. The controls are fabulous too.
By tapping on a tweet, a new context menu will open where you can perform different functions like retweet, quote, favorite, copy, share and view etc. If you will open the entire tweet, it will show you the entire content of the tweet like attached image and inserted URLs as well. The image will be shown as a thumbnail but you can view it in full screen by tapping on it too.
The app is really great for everyone but if you are really and advanced user and you are already using some other Twitter third party client then you may not like Twidere because it has got limited functions. The developers will add more features in new updates for sure.
