Android tablets are finally getting a decent optimized Twitter app. Thats according to the recent leak you see above which is an apparent screenshot of Twitters Android tablet app currently in the works. It looks like the stretched out mobile app just wasnt cutting it anymore, and rightfully so.
The leak comes from German Android news website Android Next. It has obtained multiple screenshots of the app. For the most part, it looks very similar to Twitters iPad app. Its not quite ready yet, but judging by the screenshots itll probably wont take long before you see it in Google Play.
Could a fully functioning Twitter app for Android tablets have surfaced on Google Play sooner? Yes. But lately Twitter has been adding so many restrictions on third-party apps that developers are having a hard time designing decent Twitter apps and theyre losing the motivation to do so. Twitters strategy recently has been to take the reigns on mobile apps and let the third-party ones slowly die out.
Nonetheless, its nice Twitter is finally stepping up to the plate. Android tablet users might not represent a large chunk of Twitters users, but they should still be just as valuable as everyone else. Hopefully the wait for the release will be easier now that its certain the app is on its way. Now if only Twitter can address those annoying blue lines...
