TweetDeck drops the “beta” and makes its Market debut

The beta version of TweetDeck has been available for two months now and after pulling in about 36,000 beta testers and releasing 11 updates they finally have seen fit to give the app 1.0 status and officially launch in the Market.

TweetDeck has fantastic visuals and in my use during the beta period operated smoothly and intuitively. One major draw for the app is its ability to update and view not just Twitter, but also Facebook, Foursquare, and Buzz.

The TweetDeck team seems to be very responsive to user feedback so that certainly bodes well for the app going forward. They are already planning for their next update which will, among other things, improve landscape support, add deeper Facebook integration, and improve support for multiple accounts.

One somewhat interesting side note on the TweetDeck app is that the Android app is the first to get new features with the iPhone and iPad apps lagging behind.

For those that haven’t used it yet you can get a preview by watching the video below which offers a nice overview of the app and some of its features.

TweetDeck is free to download so I definitely recommend you at least take it for a spin and let us know what you think.

Update: If you have the beta installed already you will need to uninstall it prior to installing the new version from the Market.
