seesmic best twitter apps for androidSeesmic

[Price: Free/$2.99]
Seesmic was one of the first Twitter apps to include Facebook support. Unlike many of these that include Facebook support, Seesmic aims to be a competent client for both. Instead of just the standard post-to-both feature, Seesmic includes more complex Facebook features like posting to pages as an admin. It includes things like Twitlonger for longer posts and link shortening via three different services. Get it on Google PlayThe interface is a tad outdated, but the feature set is very strong and that makes this worth looking at if you’re an avid user of both Facebook and Twitter.

UberSocial best twitter apps for androidUberSocial

[Price: Free/$4.99]
UberSocial is a feature packed Twitter app. So much so that it fancies its users as octopi with swiss army knives. It has most of the features you’d expect out of a Twitter app like muting hashtags and theming. However, Get it on Google Playit does have a few more unique features such as menu customization. If you want something that’s just different from the norm, we’d recommend you give this one a shot.

Twitter best twitter apps for androidTwitter

[Price: Free]
Here is our obligatory nod to the official Twitter app. It makes the list because it is the official app and while many prefer third party options, the official app is still capable in its own right. A host of updates including a new way of tracking conversations has added some pizzazz to an otherwise aging interface. Get it on Google PlayThey’re also working on Android tablet support which will be wonderful when it gets done. If you want the official Twitter experience, this is the app you want.

We wanted to put Falcon Pro on the list, but because of Twitter’s ridiculous token system, the app was sadly pulled from the Play Store. It’s wildly difficult for your average person to get into the app and use it. It’s unfortunate because it’s one of the best. As we stated earlier, there are a lot of Twitter apps out there. If there’s one we missed that you feel should be mentioned, feel free to leave us a comment and let us and our future readers know!

  • Christian Tolentino

    Falcon Pro is the best.

    • Dairox

      I agree, I don’t know why most of the blogs are leaving it behind when is still one of the most used and loved

      • JosephHindy

        Because it’s more difficult to use. Thanks to Twitter’s token system and Falcon’s popularity, it’s extremely difficult for new users to even get into Falcon, let alone use it. Keep in mind your average person expects the app to download and work and they haven’t kept up on the news of where to get it, how to make it work, etc. So for us more savvy fans, it’s not a big deal but for the general populace, it’s something they don’t know how to do and I had to take that into consideration when I wrote this piece.

        I’m just as saddened by it as you guys are, believe me and I found a way to mention it even if the token system broke it.

        • Dairox

          True that… I’ve been using Falcon Pro since a very few weeks before the trouble with the tokens, but I’ve found my self in trouble when I’ve tried to add another account that don’t have it. Even with the “crack” method I still can’t use it with other accounts and I though it was just me, so… Yes, it’s great but I has sucked thanks to twitter’s polices.

        • APai

          twitter is being an absolute asshole to the developers who made their product great.

          • JosephHindy

            Pretty much this, yes.

      • imkhalid

        tweetcaster has more users than any other app

  • http://xantarmob.altervista.org/ xantarmob

    Hum …. It lacks the excellent Robird!!

  • Leonard Wong

    Falcon Pro and Tweetings is the best!

  • http://www.ebog.me/ ebog

    Falcon Pro is the best application for Tweet support applications for Android. I’ve been loyal to it for a long time

  • Keef

    Falcon Pro

  • Coco

    Falcon is #1

    Falcon Pro. glad I’m not “your average user”

  • Kyt44

    Falcon Pro.

  • Orientador a Objetos

    Unbelievable that Falcon Pro was not mentioned.

  • Frans Breddels

    Twicca and Plume “Get it On Google Play” links are swapped.

  • IDontKnowMyName

    Since I use Flipboard for many other things I use it for Twitter as well and it’s great. I don’t want to install just another app when there is one that does the job already.

    Carbon <3

  • rzap

    Falcon pro

  • Brandon D’Souza

    Tweedle has the best ui out of the lot, with no ads and free!

  • Jaun Lombard

    Love carbon…but no option to quote a person like the Original twitter

  • http://www.jusuchyne.com/codingforme Justin Alex

    Even if it’s not in the list, Falcon Pro is still the best. Period.

  • Julio Reyes

    Falcon Pro!

  • joncosmo

    Falcon Pro

  • Bootleg Zani

    Are we just leaving out Falcon Pro because new users cannot use it?

    • grumpyfuzz

      New users can use it, they just have to do a google search on how to “unlock” it. I did it myself, and it was pretty easy to do.

  • Lugnuts McGruff

    Falcon Pro as has been already mentioned.

    Any particular reason why it was excluded? Is this a “sponsored” article or something?

    • JosephHindy

      Read the last paragraph and my comment above. Twitter killed it. We don’t do sponsored app reviews here ;) I’m not that kind of blogger.

  • John Locke

    I use the official Twitter app. I haven’t really used other apps because it’s really good and I’ve never really had any problems with it.

  • Nick V

    I have tried so many of them, but Twitter (official app) has come a long way this year, in a pleasing yet mature way

  • Joel Santamaria

    Falcon Pro

  • Mrtito32

    Falcon Pro.

  • Arnold_ZA

    Falcon Pro

  • http://www.rubenalamina.mx/ Ruben Alamina

    Plume is my favorite. Its layout and theme options are the best looking IMHO. After it I would choose Tweetings and Falcon Pro. Surprised Tweeting wasn’t mentioned and I’m assuming Flacon Pro wasn’t because it’s not available on Google Play.

  • What the Falc?

    Tablets: Falcon Pro
    Phone: Carbon

  • http://ferrydust.tumblr.com ferrydust

    I don’t know how to take this article and poll seriously when Tweet Lanes is not on the list.

  • Nagateja

    I cant live without integration of twitlonger. so plume gets my money.

  • George Novac

    Falcon Pro !

  • Princeton

    Tweetings is the current best. Robird deserves a mention.

  • alan carr


  • Angelo Allegra

    Falcon Pro as well. Haven’t used any of the other apps anymore. Even the official Twitter app get smoked by Falcon Pro.

  • alan carr


  • APai

    love the elegant design of plume, but falcon pro is cheaper AND good

    • unaLuna

      I think you can download anything but is important also to have the official one,You can download it here: http://goo.gl/vN6ici

  • tweecha

    Hi! I’ve found your twitter client review. I’m glad if you just wrote tweecha review. Thank you.

  • Tabraiz

    I think falcon pro is far ahead of everyone.

  • http://www.sethgoldstein.net/ Seth G.

    Falcon Pro. Though it’s not working on it’s own you can hack it to work on your account. I love it.

  • John A

    Tweetcaster would be my slight favourite over Plume, with Falcon Pro in 3rd. Personally, I’ve never quite understood the hype about Falcon Pro. I like it, but it’s not my favourite.

  • Eddyt

    Falcon Pro is still the best

  • http://www.emmanuelchenze.com/ Emmanuel Chenze
