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).
