Twitter For Android v4 Brings More Holo – Swipeable Columns, Flatter UI

Holo to the hell yes. Twitter just updated its Android (and iOS) app(s), bringing the much needed, required, wanted, necessary swipeable columns. In addition, the navigation bar is now flat, so any remnants of an iOS-clone for Android should have been squashed once for all.

Twitter for Android 4.0

The app has also been made a lot faster now – the scrolling and animations are one of the best of all the Android Twitter apps, paid or otherwise.

This update also brings the “Deep Links” to apps in the tweet details page. For example, if you have open a Foursquare or a Flickr tweet, you’ll be presented with a link to open the said tweet in the respective service’s app, or if you don’t have the app installed, you’ll get a link to install the said app. However, I’m yet to view anything like that. It’s supposedly there in this version, but I’ve not seen it yet.

The changelog –

  • A brand new look and feel crafted for Android 4.0+. Navigate seamlessly between your favorite parts of Twitter with a simple swipe.
  • Easier to connect with friends and join conversations with @username and #hashtag suggestions that appear as you search or compose a Tweet
  • Discover, install and launch your favorite apps from Tweets
  • Other bug fixes and improvements

You can get the app from the Google Play Store here.
