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.

It's not often I look at a product or service and say "I really really hope this isn't real, and it's an elaborate fake". Alas, this day has come. It's time for a look at something which cropped up on my radar today, namely a service called FileThis. I won't do them the search-engine-ranking honor of providing a direct link to their site, but a quick search will find them, and their app on the Play Store and iTunes store....
More and more smartphone manufacturers have been moving towards on-screen buttons, with Google really pushing for it over the physical button alternative. However, there are still a few OEMs (we're looking at you, Samsung) that have preferred to keep things a bit more traditional. Tell us which way you prefer and why.
