Twitter for Android gets another update

Twitter for Android gets another update
A major update for the Twitter for Android app last week had Android users thinking that finally Twitter got it right this time. With swipeable tabs, new fonts and the Holo UI, many Android users who had turned to third party Twitter apps are slowly returning back to the original Twitter for Android for their 140 character fix. No sooner had the ink dried on the first update than Twitter for Android was the subject of a second update that killed off some bugs and took care of some light housekeeping. One bug fix that Twitter needed to repair right away was one to the "Me" tab which was not fully loading every time the app was launched. Monday's update solved that problem.

The latest update also repaired a problem that was affecting owners of certain HTC phones like the HTC One.  Some models manufactured by the Taiwan based manufacturer were produced without a physical menu key, like HTC's new flagship model. These handsets had to use an on-screen menu key for Twitter, which reduced the amount of real estate available for the app itself.

The update to Twitter last week left some HTC phones showing the menu bar, which was left as non-functional. That bar has now been removed by Monday's update, returning some real estate back to the app user. Oh, also improved with this update is the UI for Honeycomb flavored Android tablets. Don't remember that build? It was a tablet-optimized version of Android that was available for slates launched after Gingerbread but before Ice Cream Sandwich.
