TweetDeck for Android gives users the power to better manage their Twitter accounts. For users, the app provides better organization and an improved Twitter experience. Twitter's native app functions well, but it lacks certain features to some people. TweetDeck aims to solve that problem by offering an alternative user interface. This particular app gets a lot of things right, however; major flaws are present, too.

A Look At The Basics

By default, TweetDeck relies upon a three-column interface. Column 1 shows users their main Twitter feed. Column 2 is reserved for mentions involving the user. Finally, Column 3 lists direct messages. The app allows each user to customize these columns, and a handful of other sorting options are available. Power users tend to appreciate the three-column approach because it provides ample information on a single screen.

Users can compose tweets within the app as well. Fortunately, TweetDeck allows users to share images and videos with ease. Location sharing is a button press away, too. Few Twitter apps make it so simple to create a tweet packed with media files. Plus, direct messages can be sent and responded to within seconds. This app doesn't redefine the Twitter experience, but it does make most things more intuitive.

No Search. Are You Kidding?

Sadly, TweetDeck suffers from one fatal flaw (and a couple of minor issues). A native search feature for Twitter is absent. Users cannot search through Twitter to find users, find tweets, or find hashtags. Since every other Twitter client includes this feature, it's unacceptable to see search omitted from this app. Stability is an issue as well because the app tends to hang and then crash without any particular cause.

A Better Twitter Client Is (Probably) Out There

Android smartphone and tablet users can find dozens of Twitter clients on the market today. Most of these apps are available free of charge, and they tend to provide more features than TweetDeck. Sure, TweetDeck is well-organized, but the lack of native search is a crushing blow to the app's potential. Better clients can be installed on an Android device, so users may want to skip on this potential option until changes are made.

Pros

  • Column organization within the app is intuitive
  • Composing Tweets couldn't be easier

Cons

  • App stability could be improved upon
  • Twitter search is virtually absent here
  • Other Twitter apps include more features
