Very good

Looking for a good Twitter client for Android? Well, you'll struggle to find many apps that are more powerful than UberSocial.

This free version of UberSocial lets you access your Twitter feeds and post tweets with the minimum amount of hassle. The program's home screen displays a list of the latest tweets of the people you're following, which automatically updates as well as UberSocial's star feature - the Überbar!

The Überbar

Clicking on a tweet pulls up a menu with a wealth of options for responding, including Reply, Show Profile, Favorite, Retweet and Retweet with comment. UberSocial also displays lists of mentions and direct messages. The Überbar, however, is the star of the show, giving you access to a wealth of features via the slideable icons at the bottom of the screen. Down here, you'll be able to see your mentions, DMs, search, trending topics, mute user options and much more. Even better, the Überbar is completely customizable.

To post a new tweet in UberSocial you just click the speech bubble then type your message. You can also quickly capture and add photos and video from your camera, or select an existing image or video file that's stored on your device. UberSocial will automatically set up the link in yFrog for you, and there's a one-click URL shortener too.

More extras

One of the great things about UberSocial is the amount of customization it gives you. There are options for adjusting the way you are notified of new tweets, along with a series of in-depth display and URL-shortening options.

Another great feature of this latest version of UberSocial is Live Preview. Turn your Android device on its side and a new kind of display will appear. Here you can view new tweets in a panel on the left, and a preview of any web pages linked to in the larger pane next to it.

UberSocial is an excellent Twitter client for Android, and one that gives you a great deal of control over your Twitter experience.
