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.

  • 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.

  • Scheduled tweets

    Want to have a tweet posted in the future, perhaps in the middle of the night? Tweetings has this useful feature built right in the compose windows.

    Enter your tweet as usual and then select the schedule feature. Input the date and time you want the tweet to post and Tweetings will take care of that for you.

    Your device doesn't even have to be active, the tweet will still get posted at the scheduled time.

    Note that any tweet can be saved as a draft in Tweetings should you decide to post it manually later.

  • Full customization

    The settings in Tweetings allows full customization of the appearance and operation of the app. It is possible to set the app to stream the timeline in real-time, and notify you of actions as per your preferences.

  • 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.
