As many of you know I recently picked myself up one of those heavily advertised Motorola Droid smart phones from the local Verizon peeps, with all of the crazy apps out there it didn’t take me long to write “15 of My First Motorola Droid Apps” and a quick Motorola Droid review. One of the best things about having a blog with no real niche is that I get to write about whatever I want, now don’t get me wrong this hardly means that I am any kind of authority on these things and I’m definitely no guru on apps for Droid phones either.
Being a multiple small business owner and having a complete addiction to social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook I am constantly looking for the best Twitter apps for Droid or that perfect Facebook app that might offer more options geared towards small business power users like myself. Like many other Motorola Android owners I instantly headed to the App Market to find a few applications that might make tweeting, sending tweets and picture tweets simple while I am on the go. Here’s a quick list of what I felt were the 3 best Twitter apps for Droid.
Best Twitter Apps for Droid
It really shouldn’t really be a surprise to anyone that I would have listed Seesmic Twitter for Android as my favorite mobile Twitter client, up until just recently when I started using Hootsuite as my Twitter manager I used Seesmic. One of my favorite features about Seesmic is that it handles multiple accounts flawlessly and makes switching between those accounts and managing multiple twitter accounts a snap, retweeting and sending picture tweets…. also easy as pie.
2. Tweetcaster Pro
Tweetcaster Pro is a pretty sweet looking Twitter app for Droid, it keeps things pretty simple and it has a really nice display for those of you that want to have a spiffy looking Twitter app for your Android phone. I prefer banner free apps which is the main reason for going with the paid Tweetcaster Pro for $4.99 vs the free Tweetcaster which will display banner ads.
3. Twitroid Pro for Twitter
This was the very first Droid app that I purchased when I first scooped up my Android, it didn’t last very long as I found sending a tweet to be a pain while in horizontal touch screen mode. I can’t really fault the app too much as I mentioned earlier I am a Twitter power and have somewhere near 15,000 tweets on Twitter, many of the tweets I send are in a hurry or at red lights when I don’t have time to carefully click the exact spot that sends the tweet.
Overall I think I’ve tried something like nine different twitter apps for Droid before I settled in on these three as the ones I like the most, I would have to tip my hat to Seesmic for a very nice Twitter app for Droid. Especially since I wasn’t super excited when I did my Seesmic Blackberry app Review. Check out Seesmic for Droid if you haven’t already, the Seesmic team really did a nice job on Seesmic.
