Cute Android: Open Source Android Apps for Developers: Twitli (Open Source Twitter client for Android)
Twitli is an open Source Twitter client for Android smartphones. Twitli is aimed at providing a maximum number of features while keeping the user interface easy to use. The number of buttons is limited: rather than putting “follow” and “direct message” buttons on the screen, Twitli gives acess to these features by clicking a user name. After clicking a user name you can
* send an @reply
* send a DM
* view that users messages
* view their website
* view their profile
* see their full name
* stop following them
* change their language settings (if translation is on)
* view tweeps in your current friends timeline on a map
* follow users with one click
* show your timeline
* show @replies you received
* show DMs
* translate tweets
* create lists
* subscribe to lists
* add geo location to your status updates
* make a picture, upload to Flickr/Picasaweb/MobyPicture, tweet the picture
* use Laconi.ca instead of Twitter, or switch between the two.
Via the android menu, there is a function “follow” that shows all user names that currently appear in the timeline shown. By clicking a name, you follow that person. This makes it extremely easy to follow people. Following people is what makes Twitter interesting.
Open a Tweet! window by tapping one of the statuses. Other options given there are DM and @Reply. Tap and hold for a second to get another menu where you can select one’s messages, profile, web site, etc. Similarly, tap on a dot on the map to Tweet, DM or @Reply.
Settings are now under “More…”. You confirm changes by simply hitting the back button.
Twitli can upload your pictures to your Flickr, MobyPicture Google Picasa account, then tweet the url. You check “upload pictures to flickr” or “upload pictures to Google Photo”. In the menu, there is an option “take picture”. Selecting that menu item makes Twitli show the camera. You take a picture, then Twitli takes the picture and uploads it. The resulting url is appended to the comment you typed with the picture and tweeted to Twitter. In Flickr, photo’s are put in your drop box, in Google Photo, Twitli creates its own album in which it puts your photos.
The first time you upload a picture, Flickr or Google will ask you to authorize Twitli for uploading photos.
You can take a picture by pressing the camera button, but also by pressing the trackball or the space bar.
