Flamingo for Twitter ($1.99), from Android developerĀ Sam Ruston, is a 3rd-party client for one of the most popular social media networks on the planet. This app was just brought to my attention on Google+, and it only took a glance to know it is worthy of a quick feature here on the site.

If you’re looking for something colorful with beautiful animations and tons of customization options, this is an option you may want to try.

Flamingo for Twitter features

  • Previews for Instagram, Flickr, YouTube, Vine, Path.com & Articles.
  • GIFs/Videos can play inline in the timeline and you can easily add them to your tweets (powered by Giphy).
  • Hover preview allows you to quickly preview photos, gifs, and user profiles by simply long pressing on an icon or image. You can preview, zoom and pan the image all with one tap!
  • Insanely customisable, almost every part of the app can be changed to your liking.
  • Other fun stuff including built-in tweet-storming, streaming, advanced muting, background syncing, scheduled tweets & many more.
  • 280 characters (excluding Japanese, Chinese & Korean as Twitter uses 140 characters for those)
  • Clear all on read later screen
  • Undo tweet sending (enable in advanced -> other)
  • Website previews supports URL shortening services
  • Select multiple images for upload at once
  • Scaling preview to media size works for videos/gifs
  • New yyyy-mm-dd date format
  • Support for wide color gamut
  • Oreo emojis on compose screen
  • Updates to interface
  • Fix for URL character counting
  • Lots of other bug fixes

As you can see, you get a lot for less than $2 here. And taking into consideration the app’s 4.5-star rating with over 4,000 reviews, it looks like most users aren’t regretting their purchases.

Don’t forget, you can get Google Play Store cash pretty much for free, so this one might not even cost you a penny if you already have a couple of bucks in your account.
