Best Twitter Client Apps for Android in 2015
Twitter Apps for Android
Millions of people are active on Twitter. It is natural because we all know that it is the 2nd largest social network. As a result, there are a lot of Android phone or tablet holders who will want to use it on their device(s). To fulfill their needs, hundreds of Twitter clients apps have been developed by various talented individuals and groups. It is very difficult to find out the best among this crow. Itis a very difficult task to do. Who would have such time and patience to install and check every single one of them? So, I have done this for you. Read the article and you will have the basic ideas about all the top Twitter apps out there.
We can broadly divide these apps into two groups, fully free and paid. Most of the paid apps have also their free versions. Free versions have fewer functions or with advertisements. There are some twitter apps which are no longer available for new users because they have reached their token limit like Carbon and Falcon. You can choose from the apps with too many features like Seesmic or from the lightweight ones like Twicca. There are some twitter clients which support both Twitter or Facebook like Hootsuit and Plume.
If you are looking for a free, then what about an open source app? Yes, Tweet Lanes is an open source android twitter client app. This app has been designed for seamlessly integrating with Android ICS. So, this app will look like a native one on an Android device with ICS or Jelly Bean. It also has the multiple account supports. You can preview the photos and videos inside the app.
Developer Tetsuya Aoyama has created “Twicca” as a light weight twitter app. Twicca is ideal for the phones with older hardware. Slower processors and low RAMs can slog other heavy clients down but Twicca will run smoothly. The app lacks the polish of other “A” grade twitter clients, but it was the only way to make it light. If you like to keep your phone faster and save some battery juice then Twicca is for you.
Twidere is the most customizable android twitter client app. You can change everything. You can set the font, change background and themes. You can even set how the tweets would be displayed. There are many small and large tweaks available inside the long menu list. So, you can make it suitable for your own need and preference. So, this app is great for those who like to tinker around.
As you can see, there are a lot of good apps for twitter. So, what will make one stand out in the crowd? The answer is simple: it should have some great and unique features or it need have a great look. In the second criteria, “Tweedle” can come to the top list chart. It has a great interface.
Hootsuit is not just a twiiter client. It is much larger than that. Hootsuit is one of the most powerful social media tool available and is best suited for the marketers. It supports multiple Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin and Foursquare accounts. So, you can see that it is a very powerful app. But in my opinion it is not best suited as a Twiiter only app. It can be sluggish due to its heavy workloads.
Blocked Twitter Clients
Carbon was one of the best looking Twitter Apps for Android . But alas, it is no more. There are no more tokens available to use this app. If any user gives up his token then it would be possible to download and use carbon by another user.
Falcon Pro is one of the best twitter clients ever made for any platforms. But this app has been removed from the app store due to over popularity. Falcon Pro’s token limit has been reached. The “token limit” is the limit of total twitter accounts can be accessed through a particular app. This limit is usually 100,000. It is still possible to download and use this app by following a work around. Go to the developer’s site Getfalcon Pro for more information.

There are many such apps and it is possible that a good one is out of my radar. It is entirely possible. So, do not forget to mention it in the comment box.
