Fenix – A Simple and Efficient Twitter Client

If there’s one social network that’s certainly not short of third party applications, it’s Twitter. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, given that unofficial Twitter clients are effectively limited to a maximum of 100,000 users. While that might sound like a huge number, if you consider the size of Twitter’s user base and just how quickly a well made application can reach a high number of downloads these days, it’s really not.

Fenix by XDA Forum Member swanz86 is a simple yet effective Twitter client that (despite still being a very early beta offering) provides a clean and efficient third party option for keeping track of your timeline. Some of the application’s current features include:

  • Clickable links in timeline
  • Inline preview of images and YouTube videos
  • Two styles of inline media preview – small and big
  • The usual dark and light themes
  • Dedicated tablet layout
  • Quick access to lists and saved searches from the app left drawer
  • Optional internal web browser
  • Multiple accounts support

As already mentioned, this is a very early version of the application and the developer intends to keep adding functionality through future updates. For those who cannot seem to settle on a particular Twitter app, this is definitely worth checking out. Perhaps this will be the one to fill the TweetDeck-shaped hole in my heart.

Fenix is available from the application thread and runs on devices sporting Android 4.0 or above.

While flagship phones usually offer bleeding-edge specs and are the most sought after phones, there is a huge market for non-flagship phones. Some offer value, others offer unique differentiating features. Today, we are going to look at the X1 phone by a Chinese company named N0.1. The company promises a truly rugged IP68 Certified phone.

When a Friend or Family Member Asks for a Phone Recommendation, What Do You Tell Them?

The majority of us here at XDA would consider ourselves power users and Android enthusiasts. Thus, when a friend or family member has a question about which phone they should get, they usually come to us. However, this is where we all differ. While some will atomically recommend the Nexus line, others in the community will suggest an offering from Samsung or LG. When a friend or family member asks you for a phone recommendation, what do you say?
