TweetLine Is A Holo Themed Twitter App For 2.1+

Most tweeters on the Android operating system are no strangers to Boid, a ‘holo’ themed twitter client which has been in Alpha and Beta stages for quite some time now. They’re probably also aware of Tweet Lanes, a similar styled application, however which (in my opinion) lacks the same polish as Boid.

Now there is a new kid in town, and he’s called TweetLine. Just like the two previously mentioned apps, Tweet Line is designed to comply with the Android design guidelines introduced alongside Ice Cream Sandwich. However, TweetLine doesn’t require Android 4.0 and can be used on devices running Android 2.1 and up.

I haven’t tried it out myself yet, however reviews from around the web seem very promising. Here’s a full list of features and things to come in future updates;

Implemented functionalities

– Register the last tweet you read in the timeline to always find your tweets as you had left them

– Android 4.0 themes available : Dark, Light, Light & Dark
– Change the text size and color of tweets
– Autcompletion on friends name
