  • Have you read our article titled “Top 5 Alternatives for Twitter“? There you will find some of the best Twitter clients available on the Play Store. Next we will talk about a more recent alternative that has stirred some interest.


    Twidere  is a holo themed Twitter client that works very well and has all the features one would expect to find in a top app. Before we talk about the features, let’s talk about the UI. While there are a bunch of good looking Twitter client out there, Twidere looks great. It simply uses the Google ICS design elements very well. Scrolling, pull to refresh and open tweets works very fast and stable. It’s a pleasure to work with. You have the option to add multiple accounts and there are lots of settings to customize.

    There are still some minor issues with it, given the early stage of development. One of them is that it does not allow third party keyboards to use spelling correction features. I’m sure these will be solved in future updates. Here is a list of features Twidere has to offer:

    • Preview, open and save images from many services like instagram, imgly, yfrog, twitpic, sina weibo etc
    • Tablet support
    • Custom API Proxy (gtap, twip tested)
    • Filters (block unwanted tweets)
    • Draft feature (not finished now)
    • t.co link auto expanding
    • GZip compressing for API requests
    • Adjustable text size
    • View conversation
    • Two themes (dark and light theme)
    • Multiple account support
    • Free and open source, without any ads!


    Twidere  is offered for Free on the Play Store, without adds or missing features.
