Apps: Official Twitter App Updated For ICS & Kindle Fire
Twitter has updated the official Android app. You’ll only see the changes if you are currently on Ice Cream Sandwich. You can also download the official app on your Kindle Fire from the Amazon App Store and coming soon to the Nook Color & Nook Tablet.
The changelog is as follows:
- Swipe shortcut: Swipe a Tweet in your home timeline to reply to, retweet, favorite or share it, or view the Twitter user’s profile, without leaving your timeline.
- “Find friends”: We’ve added a confirmation alert when you select “Find friends”. This notification more clearly and explicitly messages the fact that when you upload your contacts’ email addresses and phone numbers, you can quickly find which of your friends are on Twitter (that is, if they’ve chosen to be discoverable by email or phone number).
- New devices: Twitter for Android is now optimized to run on Android devices running Ice Cream Sandwich, as well as on the Kindle Fire (available today through the Amazon Appstore) and the Barnes & Noble NOOK Color and NOOK Tablet (available February 23 though the Barnes & Noble NOOK Store)
With those changes, it brings hardware acceleration and support for Roboto font. Not only will it run a lot smoother but it’ll be clearer to read. Download it now from the Android Market! Let us know what you think guys!
