New TweetDeck Available, Includes Three Widgets

TweetDeck is quickly becoming the best Twitter app available on Android.  It pains me to say that after being a HootSuite fan for so long, but it’s hard to argue against it at this point.  In just a few short weeks, we’re 5 or 6 versions in with the latest update bringing 3 widgets to the table.  How many other Twitter apps have been out for months now and still can’t figure out how to put together a clean widget?  TweetDeck created 3 in about 3 weeks time.

Download the new version here.

    I don't seem to get notifications? I have it set to every 6 mins but I rarely see the notification come in. I have the Tweetdeck bar widget up but they rarely light up when there are updates. Is it a nono to have the default twitter app setup along with Tweetdeck? Is there a way to add trends?

    Nice. Finally decided to try it. Love the look and all that it integrates. I said goodbye to Hootsuite on my desktop and will see what happens to Tweetcaster.

    Thanks for the FYI and Thanks TweetDeck for finally putting it on Android, I've been waiting seems like forever, and with this latest update, I can now completely uninstall my use to be Fav Twitter app “Tweetcaster Premium”

    Hrm see that they added a refresh settable interval and widgets. Ok and sold. Removed the stock Twitter, Facebook, and Foursquare apps and am now flying solo with Tweetdeck. Pretty satisfied so far all my old problems from the first beta are gone very impressive. Would be nice if the widget scrolled through Tweets though that's it's only shortcoming widget wise. And while I like the Foursquare map view a searchable or list view inclusion would be nice. Honestly the Foursquare portion is pretty pitiful.

    Yeah, what the heck happened to Hootesuite? They came out with a base app and then abandoned it. It had the potential of becoming as great as TweetDeck. It looks like TweetDeck is just in it to win it. I'm only sorry I paid for Hootesuite. :(

  • theineffablebob

    I was hoping for a Tweetdeck widget similar to HTC's Friendstream where you can scroll through your posts.

    Okay, I just installed, and I'm trying to use the post widget. I hit “compose” and a second widget pops up but its going up and down instead of across, making it very hard to see what I'm typing, and the “send” button is mostly cut off. Anyone else having this issue? I'm on a stock Droid X

    • http://twitter.com/teardropcity matt wheeler

      Ok nevermind, I figured out the widget was messed up because I only had Twitter added, once I added an additional account, the compose box was bigger. I don't think this is for me. I'm one of those types who likes to keep the Twitter and the Facebook separate.

        Yep, that's a known bug. We'll put out a release next week that fixes it, otherwise download this: http://twitter.com/toby/status/24122739189

        You can also keep FB separate from your Home column if you like by turning it off in the column preferences. You can add a FB specific column with the new + button.

    Am I missing something, but TweetDeck doesn't have a thumbnail of pics like TweetCaster?? I like the TweetDeck layout but I need my little pics…

  • http://twitter.com/myermenson Michael Yermenson

    Great app, for me it lacks being able to upload pics directly to Facebook wall, instead of Yfrog.

    • http://twitter.com/toby Toby Padilla

      We'd like to add that at some point. It will probably be post 1.0 though.

      • http://twitter.com/myermenson Michael Yermenson

        I can live with that! :)

    Very clean app. I just wish more updates showed up in the column widget. Right now only the two most current show up.

  • kev7n_g

    Twicca combined with the new LauncherPro widget still rule the roost, in my opinion. Although, Twicca could benefit from an editorial check for spelling errors (i.e. “updated 9 hour ago”).

    how do you get rid of the stock twitter app?

    • http://fuzz.me.uk Andrew C.

      If you're running a 2.2 Android device you unfortunately can't get rid of it because it's considered a bundled app (like gmail or Google Maps).

      If you're still on 2.1 you just have to go to Menu –> Settings –> Applications –> Manage applications –> click on twitter –> Uninstall.

        yeah, im rooted running ChevyNo1. i would like to use tweetdeck but i hate getting multiple notifications. its the same thing with the stock messaging app. i like handcent but still get two notifications for each incoming message..

        • Kaufkin

          Jeff: you can fix that by going into your settings and disabling the notifications. directions are on the Handcent FAQ.

          • http://twitter.com/toby Toby Padilla

            You can also just log out of your Twitter account in the official Twitter app. That seems to keep it from starting up as well ;)

  • Flying_Hellfish

    Great for twitter…. still having issues keeping my FB connected though

    • http://fuzz.me.uk Andrew C.

      FB has some API issues right now that seem to manifest in all apps (including the desktop and mobile version of TweetDeck). Hopefully things will start working again ASAP.

      To quote the TweetDeck twitter account, “The Facebook API is returning errors at the moment, causing some issues with FB columns. Hang in there…”

      • Flying_Hellfish

        It has been like this for weeks though. :(

        Ever since I think beta 4 I can't even log out and back into FB in tweetdeck to make it work again, I have to uninstall and reinstall tweetdeck if I want to see facebook.

        • http://fuzz.me.uk Andrew C.

          Oh, that's strange. My suggestion would be to either send a tweet to @TweetDeck or @richardbarley describing the problem (you might want to use the #tdsupport hashtag) or on the Android – Issues Support Forum.

          Please note that it's a weekend right now so you might not get an answer until Monday.

        • http://twitter.com/toby Toby Padilla

          I think we're close to tracking down the FB problems. Hopefully we can get a new build next week. Otherwise you can try this: http://twitter.com/toby/status/24122739189

    …and downloading now.

  • http://lee.donaghy.myopenid.com/ deadite66

    seems silly to me to develop a new client that doesn't use oauth

    • http://twitter.com/toby Toby Padilla

      Android TweetDeck does use the new Twitter auth.

      • http://lee.donaghy.myopenid.com/ deadite66

        it asked me for my login and pass it didn't forward me to twitter to allow access.

  • Chrstphr Wlk

    TweetDeck is the best app now even better!Thanks for the update

  • http://twitter.com/TonyG916 Tony Garza

    been using tweetdeck beta for quite some time…hands down the best twitter application. love the column adds especially with the lists created. i have a column for “android” people and a column to follow on saturdays/sundays for “football” peeps.

  • Layziebone90706

    Twicca is still and will always be the best twitter client for Android in my eyes

  • Ben M.

    Wow!

    You hit the nail on the head with “How many other Twitter apps have been out for months now and still can’t figure out how to put together a clean widget?” Prior to this I had yet to find a clean, simple, status update solution.

    The “Post” widget for this app is perfect, with one click I can bring up a post window that lets me update any or all of my Tweet-Deck enabled accounts. PERFECT!

    • richardbarley

      Glad you like the widgets Ben. We'll try to make them even better once we get the app in the market & start pushing point releases :)

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Shannon-C-Kerr/827781725 Shannon C. Kerr

        Wonderful work! I'm ready to pay. :)

        Anyone else reporting issues with the top entry of the “me” column? The first entry is half hiding and half showing and when I click on it it force closes every time. Should I uninstall and reinstall? Also, I'd like to be able to remove any column I like not just some. THANK YOU!

  • CheeseMcGee

    Now I will have to give it a go
