Must-have Android apps, according to Donovan Colbert

Twitter app

"Here is the Twitter app home screen. I used Twidget Lite, a competitor Android app, for a long time - even after Twitter finally released their Android app. Then Twidget stopped working, so I switched to the official Twitter app.

"Anyhow, it really is the most full featured Twitter app on Android, and it's actually more intuitive and powerful than the Twitter web site. I've had more Jason Hiner, Twitter A-Ha moments using this app than in using Twitter with other apps for an entire year previous to switching to this app."
