Android smartphone owners, here’s to you: Twitter (in partnership with Google) has just released an official Twitter app for Android 2.1 OS up for free download. Twitter basically said “bummer” to those of you that have an older Android OS version, but I guess that’s tough love for you right there.
The official Twitter for Android app features a slick widget and also comes with gelocation, but the one feature that makes the official app special is the full integration with the Contact applications, making it feel like Twitter is integrated into your OS, and not just an App that you’ll have problems dealing with.
Unfortunately, there is no support for multiple accounts, but I guess no one really expected that in an official app from Twitter. The official Twitter for Android up can be downloaded for free from the Android Marketplace.
Twitter releases official App for Android. Is it any good ?
Google and Twitter have announced that they will be releasing the API for this application to future developers, which is quite a good thing as there is a lot of room for improvement and new features.
