Twitter’s Android app updated, brings a more detailed conversation view and richer search results
Twitter on Wednesday updated its Android app, bringing the app to version 3.8. A notable change to the app was an enhanced conversation view. Despite the feature working in the app, Twitter seems to have pulled it from its list of changes.
The enhanced conversation view should show all replies and interactions to a tweet whether you’re going backwards or forward in time. In addition to the enhanced conversation view, the search function has been updated to provide richer search results. Some search terms, presumably popular terms, will even return “Top Tweets from big moments in the past” in some cases.
Lastly, the pull-to-refresh animation is much smoother than before. This may not be very noticeable on newer devices using Jelly Bean thanks to Project Butter. There are sure to be some users with slower and older phones that will find this to be a nice though.
There are quite a few good things about this update, but we’re still holding out for a nice tablet UI. Until then, we’ll be opting for Falcon Pro. You can snag the update for Twitter from the Google Play Store right now if you haven’t already.
