Android TweetDeck 1.0.3: We're Listening - Twitpic, Short URLs & Landscape

Monday, 22 November 2010

It’s been a little over a month since we launched Android TweetDeck 1.0. Thanks to a great beta period we were able to deliver a really solid first version of the app. Use cases had been polished out, bugs fixed, but still, there’s always more to be done.

Today we’re releasing Android TweetDeck 1.0.3 to the market with many of the features we’ve heard most requested since launch. Included is the ability to manually shorten URLs, change the photo service to Twitpic and more complete support for landscape mode.


Click the device Menu button to change image services or manually shorten a URL.

Change log for 1.0.3:

  • Landscape mode for all update detail views
  • Added support for Twitpic
  • Manual shortening
  • Allow for dismissing Places notification
  • Fix faving tweets on 3g in France
  • Allow old style RTs for protected users
  • Support FB Single Sign On
  • Allow users to delete DMs that are sent to them
  • Likes and comments on FB photos should stay in app
  • Several bug fixes and performance improvements

1.0.3 is rolling out to the Android Market now and should be available for everyone running Android 1.6+.

While we think this is the best version of Android TweetDeck yet, it is by no means slowing down in development. High on the priority list is user name auto-complete, ability to upload video, native Facebook image posting and better widgets.
