A tablet-optimized Twitter app was introduced for Android on Thursday, though it’s a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 exclusive for the time being—other Samsung tablets will also have access to the app soon. The app itself takes the same approach iPad users will be familiar with, employing a two-column landscape that more effectively uses the larger real-estate. It’s unclear when the app will make it to other tablets in the future, such as Google’s Nexus 7.
Twitter introduces the app like it was designed specifically with Samsung in mind, highlighting the app’s compatibility with the Korean company’s Multi-Window feature. “You can read Tweets while browsing the web,” Twitter writes. Just terrific stuff. The app is meant to more closely mirror an experience you’d get on the desktop; a Twitter widget is also part of the package, so you can easily and more quickly see what’s streaming through your feed.
In addition to compatibility with Samsung’s Multi-Window feature, Twitter for Android (Samsung) also lets users take advantage of the Note’s S Pen abilities. Anything you draw up—you can also mark directly on photos for some extra pizzaz—can be shared directly through the Twitter app.
Twitter does say the app will be “available on other Android tablets,” just not when. Hopefully it’ll be more widely available sooner rather than later, though users can still upscale the Twitter app for phones.
