Twitter for Android Updated, Brings New Look, Universal Search

We told you earlier today about Twitter for Android, version 2.0. Well, said release is now available. The new Twitter for Android brings a few new features, such as:

  • You can now use Twitter without signing in. For example, a user can see trends, browse interests, and even see suggested users in different categories.
  • The UI has gotten some changes as well. There’s now a bar at the top, where users can see tweets, mentions, direct messages, and lists.
  • In addition, the user can now see retweets in their mentions column.
  • Universal search is also introduced in this version
  • Finally, users can now scan through their address book and see which of their friends (that are “discoverable”) are on Twitter

I, for one, havent gotten the opportunity to check out the new version, but judging from the screenshots on Twitter’s blog, and the features listed above, it sounds pretty awesome. Anyone installed the updated version of Twitter for Android yet? Give us your thoughts in the comments below!

I've been an Android fanboy since day one, but I've never had a chance to truly express my voice and be a part of the Android Community. When AndroidGuys starting accepting applications for interns, I saw my opportunity. I joined the AndroidGuys team and haven't looked back!

    Last May at Google I/O they promised us the source for the first version of the official Twitter app. Here we are at the next version and as far as I know, no source has been released (though I gave up looking a while ago). Anybody know what happened to the idea that this app would be “open source”?

    Version 2 and it still doesn’t remember your timeline position! Useless. I get over 200 tweets at night, the last thing I want to do is scroll down, refreshing over and over again, until I get back to where I was the night before.

    Sticking with tweetdeck and / or twidroyd.
