Twitter for Android gets Holo update

iOS has Twitter to their liking, while Windows Phone’s iteration is already following their Modern UI. What about Android? Well, here it is – Twitter 4.0, the update you might have been waiting for.


Most of the update is visual. Gone are the iOS-like gradients and 3D-buttons for design language as it employs a flatter UI across the app. The curved element of the edges are also gone, and the experience feels more boxy – but not to a point that it feels like Windows Phone.

By swiping across the screen (no need to press buttons), you can get to your Home, Connect, Discover & Me tabs. Also, the other major change is the font used as it takes charge with Roboto, Android’s font. The other thing that saw improvement is the way use the #hashtag as suggestions now appear.


There was one thing Twitter missed however. Windows 8 already has a Twitter app, and the iPad has tablet-optimized app — when Android doesn’t have a tablet optimized one, which makes viewing Twitter on 10-inch screens a mess.

Here’s a hands-on preview video:

    What a waste of time. Internet space. And effort.

    Yes nag aksaya ako ng oras para ipost ang comment na ito. Para ma express ko ang dissappointment sa kalidad ng articles dito.

    This article is simply a trash.

    Why so many haters? This article was also posted on Engadget, but the comments aren’t about the writer.

    Anyway, I like Twitter’s new UI. Smoother and faster than the previous version.

    Hello! I could have sworn I’ve visited this web site before but after browsing through a few of the articles I realized it’s new to me.
    Nonetheless, I’m definitely delighted I came across it and I’ll be book-marking it and
    checking back frequently!
