    I can’t get this app to work on my droid 4. It says to install from my widgets however it doesn’t appear in my widgets. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled I’ve even wiped my phone. Its not my phone.

    Love the app but autocomplete wont load all of my followers and following. Anyone else have this problem/ a fix?

  • xxdesmus

    By far the best Twitter app on Android already. Well worth the price.

  • DC_Guy

    I don’t like the fact that certain notification features are only available when connected to WiFi. Also, it randomly skips place in my TL sometimes which is very annoying. A good app but still has some bugs to be worked out.

    Slow day over at Droid Life eh?

    This is my favorite twitter app. The only thing that bugs me about it is that I don’t get “real time” mentions etc… I see there is an option for this but I think it says it’s only available when used with wifi.

    Still needs multiple account support. I’d buy and donate if the dev adds that feature.

    • JBartcaps

      Seriously one feature is holding you back? This is worth it without that feature

      • Sqube

        Well… apparently it isn’t, or Sean would have gotten it already.

      • http://twitter.com/seanlongoria Sean Longoria

        I agree the app is beautiful and probably worth the buck just for the beauty and fluidity, but I think any Twitter app should have multiple account support to at offer same-level features as the official app

      • http://twitter.com/seanlongoria Sean Longoria

        I’m also concerned about how the dev team is handling Twitter’s 100,000 user limit, a question I’ve yet to have answered.

        It would seem to me as there wouldn’t be any incentive to support the app if there’s a threshold on how profitable it can be.

    • Brian

      Me too – I’m just waiting for multiple accounts to be supported. It’s a must for me. I do use their widget on my tablet.

      • Qbancelli

        Why ppl need multiple accounts in Twitter?

        Sign out and sign in. Done.

        • http://twitter.com/seanlongoria Sean Longoria

          I have separate personal and professional accounts. I’m a news reporter and my newspaper requires me to use Twitter but I’d like to be able to manage both of my accounts from the same app.

    • Br_d

      It’s one dollar. I don’t get the mindset of people that hem and haw over whether to buy an app that costs as much as a coffee from McDonalds.

      • http://twitter.com/seanlongoria Sean Longoria

        It’s not the cost at all. It’s the fact that the app doesn’t deliver the features I’d be looking for, so essentially it’s a waste to buy the app if I’m not using it. I’d happily pay more if the app had the features I was looking for. It’s a beautiful app but looks aren’t everything.

    The best Twitter app just got better. :-)

  • inzandity

    Hands down the best twitter app out there. It’s a shame twitter is shutting down third party support :-(

    • http://twitter.com/Phoenix_Michael Michael Nash

      They don’t need support from Twitter. Their app is better than anything Twitter can make.

      • http://twitter.com/Belatukadro Justtyn Hutcheson

        If Twitter continues to cut and shut down its API’s like it has been doing lately, then the third party Twitter clients won’t have anything to show or be rendered all but useless no matter how nice they are.

        • http://twitter.com/BlackBlizzNerd Ben Landwehr

          Well if this happens, Twitter really needs to hire the guys behind Falcon Pro.

      • Jon Lambert

        wrong kind of support. talking about the 100,000 api key limit, meaning if 100,000 people downloaded this app, signed in, and didn’t revoke the app’s access when they decided not to use it anymore, no one else could get this app

  • possomcrast1

    Anyone know why it still doesn’t show other people’s favorites of my tweets?

    • Jason Purp

      For some reason I don’t think the app has this feature. Weird…
