TweetCaster Android app adds massive functionality to mobile tweeting

TweetCaster Android app

While we are big fans of the newest version of the native Twitter Android app, the biggest challenge is managing multiple accounts. We’ve tried various apps like TweetDeck for Android, but they use up a lot of battery and aren’t as fast as the native app.

Enter TweetCaster which is specifically designed to manage multiple Twitter accounts which is perfect for agents who keep their personal and professional Twitter accounts separated. Use of smartphones in the field is on the rise and having useful apps on hand to streamline those processes is of the utmost importance.

In the Android Market, this app has 4.5 stars after over 150,000 ratings and one of the features unique to TweetCaster is “Zip it!” which allows users to hide Twitter trends or annoying users without unfollowing them. Brilliant.

Users can color code tweets for ease of skimming, has conversation threading and the ability to retweet with or without a comment. Awesome.

    I'm addicted to tweetdeck. It's hard to imagine learning a new system…. do you really think it's superior or just as good?

      Jay, if you're liking TweetDeck, no need to switch, but for me, TweetDeck crashes my Android and nothing else does.

    Thanks for turning me on to this. I just paid the $5 for the premium version to get rid of the ads – it's faster than my previous default, Twidroyd (sp).

      I doubt Twidroyd will be around in another year or two, Twitter doesn't like their parent company (my opinion) and would flip the switch again if they could. I'm thinking about chipping in my $5 too 🙂
