Twitter for Android hits version 4.1

Twitter are continuing their recent push to turn their Android app into something you’d actually want to use. With the 4.0 update, I actually switched to it as my go to Twitter app, and with 4.1 they’ve made it that little bit better.

 The compose screen is actually now a screen, rather than the previous pop up sheet. This allows space for the big new addition, which is the introduction of an inline photo picker for inserting your pictures. Unfortunately, it only shows photos from the camera roll (and not the screen shot album for us geeks!) but it does make picking photos that little bit quicker and should save you having to pop out of the app and into the gallery.

 You can also insert your location, with a nice map replacing the keyboard that can be panned and zoomed. I still prefer to keep location off, but the less paranoid among you can now reveal your exact coordinates with that little bit less friction.

 May the steady improvements keep coming. I’m still waiting for (much) better list support.
