As it stands, Plume is one of the more popular third-party Twitter clients available for Android. With a clean UI, multiple options for customization and timely updates, Plume currently stands with a four and a half star rating in the Market. And its team of authors (LevelUp Studio) has earned the rank of Top Developer. In a recent post on Google+ from LevelUp Studio founder and developer Ludovic Vialle, we got to take a candid glimpse into where Plume is headed from here.
First up to the plate for Plume is a reworked ListView component. Vialle mentions Plume has “always had position issues in the timeline” and that the new version works very well.
Up next is Notifications. Not only will the next milestone release of Plume feature push notifications, but it will also bring about realtime updates within the app:
New tweets/mentions/dm will be notified at the bottom with numbers, and refreshing will only refresh the display internally.Ludovic VialleLevelUp Studio
With these new additions to Plume, the application could very well become the top Twitter client on Android today. But LevelUp doesn’t want to stop there. After ListView and Notifications are introduced and fine-tuned, Vialle plans to begin working on Facebook and, someday, Google+ integration. It may be awhile, but sometime in the near future Plume may just turn out to be your one-stop-shop for social networking on Android.
No ETA has been given for the newest versions of Plume, so make sure to keep checking back with Vialle on Google+. Or stay tuned to Android and Me, where we’ll be sure to let you know when the updates are available.
