With Twitter beginning to integrate almost seamlessly with Android and our daily lives, this new update is certainly well worth noting. Just today, the Twitter application for our devices was updated to the latest 1.0.5. software and what makes the update so special is mainly due to the super long and attractive change log that comes with it.
The changes include:
- Promoted tweets in search. Searching for a topic will return promoted tweets if there are any.
- Speed improvement for Timeline/lists. Scrolling Tweets is lot smoother now.
- About, Privacy & Terms added to Settings. Go to Home -> Settings -> About to see what version of Twitter for Android you are running.
- Quote/Retweet confirmation dialog. The user has the option to either Retweet, Quote, or cancel when tapping on the retweet icon.
- Cleaner timeline
- Tweet details. Tap a tweet to view its details.
- Tweet actions in search results (retweet, favorite, share, reply)
- Pull-to-refresh. From the top of a list, pull down and release to refresh the list.
- Swipe to reveal. From your timeline, fling a Tweet left or right to reveal actions underneath.
- Inline maps. Open a tweet with a geolocation to view a map inline with its content.
- Search results now contain top tweets
- Page break. If you haven't refreshed in a while, you may see a page break in your timeline. Tap the page break to load tweet
After all these changes, you can see a lot of improvements by just logging into the software. The UI has undergone some improvements as expressed in the change log and with that comes added speed and stability, which are always very welcomed in the land of apps. I hope with all these changes, you are updated to the latest version and loving your twitter experience that only the best of Android can provide.
