Alpha Release for Boid, an ICS-Specific Twitter Client
With the release of Ice Cream Sandwich, users got to see a new user interface with features not available in prior versions. Applications that take advantage of the new interface and features came along for the ride as well, and it’s only a matter of time before we see more.
XDA Forum Member madeincanon has posted about Boid, a Twitter client promising to create a new Twitter experience thanks to its ICS-styled interface. While still in alpha, is showing promising results. Plans for the next few releases include:
** More bug fixes
** Lists and saved searches
** A complete tweet composer (media and location attach)
** A tweet viewer (including retweeting, viewing conversations, favoriting, and clicking links in tweets)
** Ability to view friends and followers
** A home screen widget (in donation version)
** Full tablet support
As you can see, it’s still a little rough around the edges, but they’re getting there to make it the best ICS-specific Twitter client available. It’ll just take some time.

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads. Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
