    Was really excited for this until I read that it doesn’t support 1.5…. Come on with the update already Sprint. My Hero isn’t even 6 months old and I already can’t run the latest apps.

    I wonder if the dev on Swift, the first android twitter client to have the in client browser, will stay up now that the guy who developed it is at HootSuite?!

    tweetcaster is better anyways, make sure u download the the free key also. I think people have issues trying to download it, but keep trying, its worth the effort to get it. Im very satisfied with it.

    • Clark Wimberly

      Tweetcaster is one of my least favorite Twitter apps on Android. And I don’t understand the key thing. An ugly app that’s purposefully complex? No thanks!

      • Joseph Allen

        I completely agree. Tweetcaster tried to build the hype but ended up being a complete fail.

  • MattDemers

    I’ll stick with my Twidroid.

  • Dylan Andersen

    Yeah, Joseph said it right.. this application is written FOR the iPhone it seems. iPhone navigation style, the whole way you get around the application is very iPhone-related. I think the devs forgot to use the Menu button on Android.

    Disappointing application. I think Seesmic is still reigning supreme.

  • Bryan Anderson

    Nice video – shame it didn’t actually tell us anything at all about the app.

    No 1.5 version? Guess I’ll stick with Twidroid for now then.

  • Markus

    I’m using HootSuite as my desktop client so the android app comes as a natural choice.

  • Dave O from HootSuite

    FYI, HootSuite for Android 1.5 is now available (as of March 6). Just check your Market and you should see it.

    I travel the world bumbling my way around and do some business every now and then.

    OK. I’m at GDC, San Francisco, at the moment and have been struggling with Twitter all day. Sitting at a bar, I was whinging to a random person who showed me his iPhone App. Jealousy evaporated when I learnt it was on Android as well.

    Fantastic apps and I am falling in love with it already. All the other clients have been uninstalled.

    !0:10 for this product guys.

    Worth whatever the price. Let alone at the special offer price at the moment.
