Ongoing work on the project
August 2010. AndTweet is being actively developed. Please see the “Updates” link above to be sure
Current version in the Source code repository already meets these goals:
* OAuth (secure authentication) implemented. As long as Twitter currently supports both OAuth and Basic authentication protocols AndTweet allows user to choose the authentication protocol (“OAuth” checkbox).
* AndTweet is compatible with Android v.1.5 – v.2.2 (although it doesn’t use new features of v.2.2 yet).
And, as usial, in the near future we are planning to:
* prepare new distribution package for internal beta testing
* and then publish new release of AndTweet on the Android Market(s).
