Twitter has released their second big official app version in 2.0 for Android, and it looks fabulous. The first major change you’ll notice is the reduction of elements, the app opening up directly to your friends stream rather than bringing you to a page of options (that used to contain tweets, lists, mentions, retweets, messages, my profile, trends, and search.) Each of the items that used to be contained on the initial opening screen are still available, but have essentially been pushed up to the top of the screen where they should have been in the first place to make room for the lists of tweets and such they’re in place to display.
Despite the few things it is very clearly missing, it’s nonetheless already replaced every other Twitter app I use on Android. The core experience, and most of the features, like geolocation, are just that good. More importantly, it points pretty strongly to the future of Twitter’s mobile apps: They’re going to be highly polished experiences that feel completely natural while outshining nearly everything else on the platform, but that maybe come at the cost of some hardcore power features that Twitter doesn’t feel are vital to the experience they want.
