While Twitter has cracked down on third-party apps out there, there are still a number of developers working on Twitter apps. And there’s a ton of people that prefer the third-party apps to Twitter’s official one. Let’s take a look at about 10 of them.
The official Twitter app has really improved over the past few years. Many of us are stuck using it due to the API limits imposed on third-party apps. It doesn’t quite have a tablet specific app (as you can see above, theres a lot of space not being used). It does support multiple Twitter accounts as well.
Plume for Twitter
Plume, which used to be Touiteur, is one of the most popular third-party apps out there. It includes features such as muting users and hashtags. It also has a great tablet UI, and uses the full screen real estate, which is important.
Fenix for Twitter
Fenix is one of favorites mainly for the design. It is Holo, but will be material design pretty soon. Fenix allows you to see full size images in your stream, which does slow down the loading of your timeline, but it does look great. Much like Plume, you can also mute users and hashtags.
Echofon for Twitter
Echofon is one of those Twitter apps that is on a ton of platforms, and thus, Echofon can sync your timeline position across all platforms, as well as syncing your settings. Which is a pretty useful feature, actually.
Talon for Twitter (Plus)
Want material design? Then Talon is a great one to check out. The Material Design version only works on Android Lollipop running devices, however. Other features include the ability to mute hashtags, phrases and users. As well as being able to see full sized images in your timeline.
UberSocial for Twitter
UberSocial has been around for quite a while, and it includes a ton of great features. You can change and adjust your columns, and add topics and much more. As well as being able to use multiple accounts.
Tweetings for Twitter
Tweetings is an old-school app, but does get a ton of support, and sees updates almost every week. And as you can see above, it does have a nice tablet version of the app. There are a ton of options in settings, from the font style, font size, and so much more.
Buffer: Social Media, Twitter
Buffer is one of my favorite apps. You can use it to schedule tweets to multiple accounts. As well as other networks like Google+, Facebook and more. It’s also got material design, which we all love.
Robird for Twitter
Robird is a gorgeous looking Twitter app, it does have a nice tablet optimized UI. Additionally, you have all the muting functionality that you could ever want.
Falcon Pro 3
Falcon Pro 3 is a remake of Falcon Pro. It is free, but with in app purchases. Your first account is $3.99 and every account after that is $1.99. That is to keep the tokens down so that they can keep bringing in new users. It is full material design and is super fluid.
