Here’s a quick heads up for those of you looking to grab a new social networking application for your Android smartphone or tablet.  Both Friendcaster (Facebook) and Plume (Twitter) dropped new releases in the Google Play Store  this week, and both look drop-dead beautiful.

Borrowing from the Android 4.0 aesthetics, each features a clean and user-friendly experience that shows off some of the platform’s best details.  It also doesn’t hurt to give users a little more than the official clients for their respective social network.  That’s exactly what happens here with Friendcaster and Plume as both provide more features and details than their official counterpart.


Friendcaster 5.0 features:

  • Beautiful new news feed
  • Realtime notifications available for all
  • Quick and easy setup wizard for notifications
  • 6 color themes (with more to come)
  • Higher resolution photos in your news feed
  • Faster access to comment and like status updates
  • Ability to tag more than one Friend at the time in a Post
  • Memory improvements all-around.
  • New checkins interface
  • Quick access to post status update or photos/video
  • Major Android design improvements
  • Lots of little things all over the place

The list of details for Plume 3.0 is not nearly as lengthy but we definitely encourage you to download it and give it a shot.  The Ice Cream Sandwich-like interface is stunning and it jazzes up your Twitter experience regardless of what version of Android you have.
