The very popular Seesmic Twitter application for Android got a major update today. The standard bug squashing fixes were included of course, but they also threw in some nice and welcome new features.
And it's a very nice widget at that. As you can see from the pic above, it blends in very well with Android 2.1's style, and looks great with Sense UI as well. Basically you're getting a premium app style widget at the free app price.
You now have the option to RT just as you would on the Twitter website. Nice and unobtrusive, and another welcome change.
Three styles to pick from - your location, a human readable address, or a map link. You can set this in the apps options to happen all the time, or choose to include it when you compose a new tweet. Something Seesmic was missing, and they addressed it very well in my opinion.
Even with an "official Twitter app for Android" in the works Seesmic is a very viable solution for twittering away on your Android device. This update makes it even more attractive. Follow the break for some more screen grabs and download links.
