Twicca is a versatile and beautifully designed Twitter client complete with an arsenal of features, customisations and even a pretty icon that replaces the Twitter bird with an origami stork. Google Play is choc-a-bloc with apps that suit different kinds of tweeple, but Twicca stands out for its simplicity and rich functionality.
Features and UI
The app displays mentions, feed, profiles, direct messages, lists, and favourites. There are several settings for changing the UI, posting tweets, receiving notifications, viewing the home feed, searching, setting the location, previewing content, caching, and so on.

The app is light, fast, and efficient. It does not drain battery life even when you set the smallest auto-refresh interval.
The features and customisations ensure that every type of user, smartphone, and setting are taken care of. The UI is uncomplicated despite the innumerable options and settings. Everything can be accessed with a tap or a long press. The best quality of the UI is readability. Also, there are no long or tedious procedures to set anything. It’s free of cost, 2.6MB in size and supports Android versions 1.6 and later. So, it can be used on a wide range of smartphones. Sponsored tweets on Twitter are not displayed on Twicca.
Auto-complete of Twitter handles in tweets takes very long. The only way out is to type out the handle yourself. Twicca does not show ‘Interactions’, i.e., the app does not display notifications for someone adding you to a list or a new user following you. Using multiple accounts is tedious, but the Google Play listing of Twicca mentions the feature as “experimental”. Twicca does not support scheduling of tweets. Taking and uploading photos becomes a little shaky at times.
Leaving aside the little chinks, Twicca is an amazing and beautiful app. What’s more, it’s free, easy-to-use, and fast. Even if you are a casual tweeter who does not need the many frills of Twicca, you will like it for its easy and gorgeous interface.
