Best Android app for Twitter?
July 25, 2013 9:13 AM   Subscribe

I've used Tweetdeck on my Android phone for as long as I can remember, but I read they were phasing it out a few months ago (since Twitter bought them) and as of lunchtime yesterday my app has finally stopped updating. Any suggestions on what the best app out there is? I'd like it to be free, but don't mind paying a few bucks for a really good app. The phone is a Samsung Galaxy Nexus, so it should be able to download anything.

Best answer: Twitter's own app is worth a look, IMHO. Third-party apps are hobbled by the API and token restrictions, but if that's not a dealbreaker, there's Carbon, Plume, and Falcon Pro.

Falcon Pro gets my vote, but you've got to do a little finagling to get it to work now a days.

I've always liked Seesmic.

I'm really fond of Janetter, which has a free version with ads and a paid version without. If keyword or user muting matters to you, this is, imo, the best app there is. It's also, frankly, really pretty, and I appreciate having relative consistency between my desktop/phone/tablet.

Response by poster: Thanks for all the answers, I went with Falcon Pro and so far am liking it, but am thankful for a few more suggestions if I get sick of this app!
