Boid Twitter app is an application developed specifically for Android 4.0. The application is the newest twitter client to enter the market, and it is still in Alpha mode, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t good.
Boid was an app at first I was hesitant about because there are so many twitter applications on the market and none of them are that good, and some are missing features I would like in the app. Once I installed Boid, and began to play around I was immediately shocked. For an alpha app I was amazed how well the app performed and all the features inside.
The application has the Holo look that Android is pushing towards to make all their applications look better and flow more with the OS. The whole UI is beautiful and set up really nice and everything is where it should be. I love how there is multi-account support because I do use two twitter accounts on a daily basis, and this makes it easier to use both. I like how the conversation view is set up in the app, and makes it easy to follow a conversation between a group of people. Overall the app is just easy to navigate and use which makes the application a winner for me.
Some things I would like to see in the future, is the ability to change font size, and set custom colors to certain people kind of like the twicca app does. Another thing I would like to see is more built in viewers for pictures, and links instead of always bringing you to the web.There is also no notifications yet, and those are a big deal for me. A widget in the future is another feature that would make this application even better. A final thing I want to see is the ability to reply to all not just the person who wrote the tweet, but also the people mentioned in it.Granted this app is still alpha so I’m sure we will see all these features in the future.
Another amazing thing about this application is the fact it has so many color themes so you will never get bored, and you are able to customize it how you like it. The application is easy to use and one of the best on the market.
There have been a few updates since I started using this app and each one has made me like the app more and more. Boid is going to me my official twitter application on my handset and it’s going to take a lot to make me use a different one.
