Do you know that Android geeks (refers to those having Android-powered smartphones) will soon have another Twitter app, known as TweetCaster (currently in Beta), on Android Market? Let’s take a quick look! Read on for more.

Feedbacks from Beta testers
To my best knowledge, only 50 lucky Android smartphone users were given the opportunity to test drive TweetCaster and one of them is Justin Hubbard. Here’s what he has said about TweetCaster:
“…app is feature packed and generally offers just about everything that established Android apps like Twidroid and Seesmic do even in its beta infancy. I’ve used it as my main client for viewing and posting tweets the last few days and have not experienced a hang up, slow down or a crash…”
“…its what should be in a twitter client and my only complaint, is that you only see 4 tweets before having to scroll down, which makes for very easy reading but also a lot of scrolling just to see a few tweets…”
“…am very pleased with Tweetcaster and am even more pleased to see the competition heating up in the Android Twitter department. I can’t say I use Tweetcaster as my main Twitter app yet, but I also can’t say I wont…”
Sounds promising so far but why only Twitter? Why not integrate TweetCaster with other social networks? Perhaps Handmark should take a few examples from Gravity, a fine app that Nokia users voted as the Must-Have Twitter app for 2009.
