If you're looking for a powerful Twitter client for your Nexus 7 and you want the very best then look no further than 'Tweetings' by RBD Solutions LTD.   Now recently ZDNET's James Kendrick to an article on 'Tweetings' that points out some of the great and unique features that make it stand out as superior from other Twitter clients.  Key to this superiority is the attention to detail the developers have put into ease of use with functional redundancies built in that let you access your most frequently used functions in multiple ways.    For example there are several ways to access the 'tweet' button.  In addition to the standard button in the top menu you can configure a 'floating' button that is always available and even turns transparent when not in use so that you can see the information below.   There's lots more as you'll see in a second.

Now the main screen of 'Tweetings' is set up in a classic 'dual pane' configuration.  But again the developers have gone the extra step to make it particularly useful so instead of having the option of sliding panes under each other that you would expect to find...you can tap to bring a pane to the front.  Pretty spiffy we must say and it makes for a quicker Twitter experience.   Other cool shortcuts and innovative features you won't find on other Twitter clients include the ability to bring up a user's profile simply by tapping his avatar or to see a user's recent photo postings right on the right pane.   Searching has also been improved when you're composing a tweet.  As you type in a twitter address not only does the program know to recommend twitter users that match but it also brings up the avatar for super quick identification.   There's lots more and a host of customizations that have made me change 'Tweetings' to be my Twitter client of choice from now on.   You can grab 'Tweetings' at the link below at the Google Play Store and you can also learn more about the standout features in ZDNET's article.

It's a shame Tweetings for Twitter is not FREE.

I have been using UBERSOCIAL for a month or so now, which is free and also has a FaceBook (  :-[ ) feed built in.

All in all, it's very good, even offering BETA releases and responding to them if there are problems, as has happened today.

Personally, I like the double pane view of Tweetings.  I don't mind supporting a developer for a job well done as long as it's not exorbitant.  $1.99 is reasonable for a well designed app.

Perhaps I should have said that if there was a 7 day free trial he might get more takers:-)
