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 New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
