Twitter for Android Updated, Brings a Menu Button!

Twitter

Hold onto your caps, folks – the Twitter app for Android now has a menu button! Well actually, we should be a bit more specific given this is our business. It’s called an Action Overflow Button. I know, I know, where has this been since the beginning? Either way, it’s there now for easy account switching and quick access to account settings. Go utilize it till your finger falls off. 

What’s New:

  • See what’s happening near you or around the world by viewing Trends in hundreds of locations.
  • Get quick access to account switching and settings via the menu button.
  • Enjoy a smoother experience thanks to bug fixes and other improvements.

    Does anyone know of a good Twitter Trending Widget? Just trending, not twitter timeline etc.

  • Chris White

    Would be nice if Facebook implemented something like this, so that HTC One users don’t have to see that stupid menu strip at the bottom of the screen.

    Update still didn’t fix the bug where user profile pics won’t update when they are changed.

          Does anything happen when you hit your menu buttonon Twitter though?

          That’s funny, the update works fine on my Note 2.

            Yup, that’s because you’re using stock DPI. If you take a look at “Guest’s” screenshot, you’ll see that he has lowered the DPI on his device so he gets more space (that’s why everything is tiny). But Twitter (and many others) doesn’t support unofficial DPI’s.

      You should blow yourself. You’re using a non-supported DPI.

        Is he one of the users still using android donut or eclair

      Blow, me.

  • Tommy Thompson

    The menu button only shows up if your device doesn’t have a physical menu button.

    • http://katzmatt.com/ Matt Katzenberger

      That’s how it should work.

      • Tommy Thompson

        Should, but doesn’t always.

        • JetBlue

          Not that big of a problem if it does show when there is a physical menu least shows the developer glanced at the design guidelines

    I for one welcome our new menu button overlord.
