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.

Best of Matias Duarte – “Ask Me Anything” Summary

Matias Duarte, VP of Design at Google, is perhaps one of the most prolific software designers of recent times: Material Design, the highest exponent of Android beauty, is Matias' own brainchild. Without him and his creation, the biggest Android update of all time wouldn't have been what it was and our favorite platform would still carry a look that many deemed outdated even before Material Design was shown. With an internet following that spawned several internet memes and even a weird community,...
