Manage Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and more with Tweetdeck
One app to rule all your social networks. TweetDeck integrates Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Foursquare accounts into one convenient place.
Already a hit on desktops and iPhones, Tweetdeck’s Android incarnation will be welcomed by promiscuous social network addicts.
Tweetdeck keeps its trademark white-on-black style intact here, Along with one-touch access to posting updates, one tap takes you to a page of favourite contacts, displaying their profiles on demand.
Once you’ve signed in to each account, updates appear in the stream. While the desktop Tweetdeck can be rendered in multiple columns, here just one displays everything.
Swipe sideways and the main list is replaced by replies, another swipe and you’ll see direct messages.
The latest version includes improved photo upload and URL shortening, and posting updates for one or more accounts is simple.
Where Twitter timestamps each message, here the clock is nicely placed at top of the screen. But the minimal stylishness is undermined by the way the scroll simply stops when you reach the bottom of the page – where’s the cute elastic bounce we know and love?
Minor niggles aside, this is a slick way to keep control of multiple social networks.
THE BOTTOM LINE
If you like the Tweetdeck styling this is an impressive Android social networker.
