Google Play has a huge collection of third party Twitter clients. There are both free and paid apps. Robird is a new, emerging Twitter client that is based on Holo sytled theme. The app looks beautiful and is amazingly fast. The app loads your tweets within seconds and scrolling between the tabs is smooth.
- Robird gives us auto refresh option with a time period.
- Live streaming for the timeline and the mentions tab so that you will never have to refresh. The new tweets and mentions will automatically display from time to time.
- Support for TweetLonger and TweetMarker sync.
- TweetLonger links automatically expand right inside your timeline. You can read the full 140+ characters tweet right in your timeline.
Is Robird Available for Free?
No, this is a paid app and is priced at $2, the equivalent Indian price is 120 INR. Well, I’d say that the app is really worth this price in my opinion. The app is currently in it’s development stages and there are numerous other features that will be coming to Robird soon. And as per the reports on Google Play, the next update will feature multi-account support and a tablet UI.
Before you Purchase the App
If you haven’t known, there is an issue when it comes to using third party Twitter clients. Twitter provides only 100,100 tokens to the third party Twitter clients. This means that only 100,000 users can be using the app at a particular time. This is one of the most common issues faced with Falcon Pro which has around 1 million users.
Considering Robird, this is a new Twitter client. It won’t have a huge number of users right now and hence seems to work pretty flawlessly.
