Looks like the official Twitter app for Android is due to get revamped soon, as EverythingAndroid has posted a quick preview of version 2.0. As you can see, the sky blue themed interface will be substituted with more conservative colors. A new menu bar, which we assume replaces the currently implemented main menu system, will be added to allow users to more conveniently switch between the timeline, @replies, direct messages, and so on. Also, when tweeting, the familiar options will be reorganized and placed at the bottom of the screen.
The release date for the update is unknown, but we’ll be sure to keep you posted. Until then, take a look at the demo and let us know what you think about the redesign in the comments below.
Update: Twitter 2.0 is now available in the Android Market!
- Easier navigation and layout
- Scan your contacts to find friends that are on twitter (under search screen)
- Universal search
- Autocomplete @usernames while tweeting
- Easier photo uploading
- Faster tweet actions (reply, retweet, follow, etc.)
