Tweetings: Best Twitter app for Nexus 7 (and maybe any platform)

Summary: I spend far too much time using Twitter and have tried just about every mobile Twitter app on every platform. Tweetings on the Nexus 7 may be the best Twitter app on any mobile platform.

  • Photo stream

    One feature new to Tweetings is unique among Twitter apps. Tapping on a user's avatar in the left pane brings up the user's profile in the right.

    This profile contains all of the usual profile information with one important difference: the Recent Photo stream.

    Tweetings collects the most recent photos posted to Twitter by the selected user in one scrolling stream. Simply swiping left and right in this stream scrolls through thumbnails of this user's photos. Viewing any photo in the stream is as easy as tapping the thumbnail.

    I have not seen this feature on any Twitter app on any platform, and it is extremely useful.

  • Recent photo page

    In addition to the useful scrolling photo stream in the previous slide, you can also tap on the stream to display this recent photo page.

    This presents all recent photos for the selected user on one page with nice thumbnails for viewing/ selecting.

  • Entering usernames in tweets

    Composing new tweets in Tweetings is as good as in any app. One cool feature is evident when you enter a Twitter username in the editing window.

    Start typing a name (@abc) and like many Twitter apps Tweetings presents you with a list of users that fit what you are entering. 

    What sets Tweetings apart from many other apps is the username appearing in the suggested list also contains the avatar, making it easier to know when you've got the right name.

  • I like Tweetro better

    Tweetro on windows 8 is awesome it makes searching an enjoyable experience. Also the built in web browser is very convenient. You can browse link without leaving the app and more importantly you search list. Best tweeter experience so far

    How does this compete against the MetroTwit? (Isn't it stupid to change name of Metro to "Modern UI" when hundreds of apps use Metro in their name?)

  • Try its parent Twidere

    The project, Twidere, started by me, is completely open source, Tweetings is based on Twidere however it just added some features like push, but it costs you $1.99.
