The official Twitter app for Android has received a large update. The update includes a massive interface and functionality overhaul. The new version, now at version 3.0, features a simple, easy-to-use interface.
The interface has been entirely reworked with a new design, and features four tabs at the top, which are: Home, Connect, Discover and Me.
The Home tab shows all the tweets that the people you have followed have tweeted. The Connect tab shows your recent interactions, new followers and mentions. The Discover tab shows you the latest news and trending hashtags on Twitter. From the Discover tab you can search for specific objects that interest you. The Me tab is self-explanatory, as it shows your profile, and links to other things such as Drafts, Lists and saved searches.
It’s good that Twitter is updating their app, but it all looks a bit iDevice-esque to me. Looking at the Market reviews unfortunately shows that the new update has received many negative reviews.
