Tweetdeck receives sizable update, available as test release

Tweetdeck for Android got a sizable update today, but the developers are releasing it as a test beta to ensure that all bugs are worked out before updating in the Market.

Users can download the update on top of the app found in the Market. This means that there is no uninstall required, though they recommend it if you're having issues.

Among the updates are:

  • Landscape mode for all update detail views
  • Twitpic support
  • Manual shortening
  • Allow for dismissing Places notifications
  • Fix faving tweets on 3G in France
  • Allow old style RTs for protected users
  • Support FB Single Sign On
  • Allow users to delete DMs that are sent to them
  • Likes and comments on FB photos should stay in app
  • Bug fixes

For those who have been waiting on these updates, go try out the beta now (Tweetdeck is looking for feedback as well, so if you find any bugs make sure to report them) [Tweetdeck]

  • The widget is the only thing that's kept me from using Tweetdeck for Android. I use it on my laptop already. When they change the widget to use less touches to get to content and to update more reliably, then I'll be all over this.
  • Giving this another shot. I would like an option for it to automatically scroll to the top on a refresh. I don't get to sit and stare at twitter all day and when I log into tweetdeck I have to scroll up forever to get to the newest tweets.
  • that option has been built in since the early beta releases... press the top bar and it scrolls to the top
  • Thanks for the tip
  • I just want a version that actually QUITS when I tell it to. If I tell it to close, that means that I don't want to keep updating!
  • ^yes, or at least stop notifying me every time a new update appears
  • You can fix that by going to each column --> menu --> column settings --> and then adjusting the notification and update settings
  • Still haven't fixed my inability to un-favorite something. It's pretty important to my personal workflow. (and I have reported it more than once). Switching back to TweetCaster until another couple versions are released and then see if the bug is fixed. Dan.
