Twitter for iOS and Android updated with new designs, features


Lots of new apps this week! Today Twitter for iOS and Android have both seen significant design and feature updates.

Along with a fresh overhaul of its website, the mobile versions have been improved with simplified, minimalistic and homogenous looks to them.

There are two major feature additions, as well: a dedicated “Discover” section for trending topics, but now there are photos and links to each. It is simple and beautiful and makes Twitter more of a news destination than ever before.

You can now also see who has retweeted and replied to any tweet in the simplified and reduced Tweet screen.

The iPhone version looks and performs great, but we’ve had serious slowdown with the Android version on the Galaxy Nexus.

Check out the new app in the iOS App Store and the Android Marketplace, respectively.

    Very fresh and clean look. Love it on my Glaxay S2 LTE!

  • Alex Perrier

    It will take a little time for me to get used to it, because it lacks the word “Twitter” as the logo. i’m pretty happy thus far! :D

  • Armand Diamond

    I still have no idea how Twitter works … or why it even exists to begin with.

    • mike

      I use it to keep up with the news. The best place to get minute to minute updates for sports.

    I wish the android version had the time displayed…battery display would be nice also…like the iOS version does. I don’t have that right now on my BB and it is very inconvenient while reading my tweets on my phone.

      The status bar that shows the time and your phones battery life doesn’t disappear when using Twitter on Android. It’s still there at the top of the screen. The picture of the android version above just cropped it out.

      Great! Thx daguy! :-)

    Twitter is much more useful than Facebook.

    Instant real-time information of events near and far from people on-site as it happens.

    What’s Facebook? Marketing and useless blahblahblah from people you never stayed in contact with since high school or do stay in contact with because they’re your actual friends that you often speak to in person anyway.

    OPP Twitter traffic updates are a gawdsend.

    Previously I can scroll to my next tweet while in the details of another, now I have to go back to Home before i can move to my next one,

    New twitter on Android is like a straight up port of the iphone app. :(

    No attention was given to android look & feel – no support for ICS context switching menu, pastel-y top bar that also is a waste of space, bar underneath is styled just like the iphone version… in a time when android is going more “flat” and simplistic, but clean.

    Twitter, why you no treat android as a first class platform? :(
