A video showing what is said to be version 2.0 of the official Twitter app for Android has been posted on the interwebs. The app is currently just at version 1.05, and this upcoming work in progress from the guys at Twitter will bring a UI overhaul.
Saving the world from another redundant screen tap, version 2 of Twitter’s Android app seems to skip the current start menu, and it will instead take users directly to the timeline. There’s a little toolbar at the top with shortcuts to posting new tweets, performing searches, and to your mentions and personal messages. There’s also a drop-down menu containing additional actions.
I try the official Twitter app from time to time to see what’s new, but I always switch back to my Twicca + Plume combination after just a few minutes, because it currently doesn’t have half of the features of those apps. Perhaps version 2.0 of Twitter for Android will change that.
Which features do you want to see in Twitter for Android, and what do you think the current version of the app does better than all the other Twitter applications? No word yet on when we will see this update in the Market.
