Twidroyd, a Twitter app for Android has recently been updated. This update has brought the version up to 4, but more important is the features that came along. The app now features LivePreview, and it seems to be a pretty solid feature to have on a smartphone.
“Twidroyd 4 takes full advantage of the Android phone or tablet’s orientation. When in “portrait” mode, LivePreviews of plixi or Twitpic photos appear embedded within the tweet, while all other tweets appear as they do in the current version. Turning the device into “landscape” mode automatically opens the LivePreview window, which displays the linked web pages, photos or videos where appropriate and additional information about the tweeter when no links are present. As users move through their tweets, LivePreviews appear instantly, enabling them to easily and quickly see the content that is most important to them.”
With that, Twidroyd can be found in the Android Market and is available for devices running 1.5 or later. Though, the new LivePreview feature requires 2.0 or higher. Otherwise, Twidroyd is available as a free and Pro version. The Pro version costs $3.99 and includes features above the free version such as multi-account support, full list support, three desktop widgets for viewing tweets on the device’s home screen, native bit.ly support and more.
I will confess, I had purchased Twidroyd Pro (back when it was still called Twidroid) but later dropped it for the official Twitter app however with the addition of LivePreviews I am going to have to give it another shot. I am just not so sure how nice live previews are going to be on the smaller display of my Droid Eris.
