Twitter applications are very popular on smartphones and there are some fantastic options for the Google Android and webOS platforms. Engadget took a detailed look at several Android apps, including the new official Twitter one.
Whether or not you are a fan of Twitter, this service is one of the most popular social networking services available and I personally find it to be enjoyable and valuable in my daily life. I have been on Twitter since July 2006 and am actually number 2,821 out of over 17 million currently reported users. By the way, feel free to follow me on Twitter. I prefer to access and use Twitter on my mobile phones and Engadget put together an exhaustive review of the best Google Android applications currently available that I highly recommend you check out.
Engadget picked Twidroid as their personal top pick and while I do appreciate the functionality of that application I still personally prefer TweetCaster (their runner-up selection) due to the interface and regular updates to improve the client. Twitter has an official application now too, but without thread/conversation view of Tweets I can't personally use it as my main client. I also enjoy using Seesmic and think it may be the best free Twitter client.
As readers here know I also use a Palm Pre Plus on Verizon and a new Twitter client was just released that I purchased for just $1.50. TweetMe is one of the best looking Twitter applications I have seen on webOS and gives me all the functionality I need at this time with conversation view, notifications, and more. There currently is no multiple account support, but that is stated as coming soon. Other webOS Twitter apps I have tried include Bad Kitty, Twee, Tweed, and Spaz.
What are your favorite Android and webOS Twitter applications?
