These are the 4 best Twitter clients for each smartphone OS

Sarah Jacobsson Purewal | May 22, 2013
We picked our favorite free Twitter apps for iOS, Android, Windows Phone 8, and BlackBerry 10.

Now, it might seem like a bit of a cop-out to call Twitter's basic-function app one of the best Twitter apps available, but I honestly like this app a lot, especially on BB10. It's a great-looking app with high-resolution profile photos and a simple, easy-to-read interface. Although some other apps, such as Twicca, offer extra readability functionality, the Twitter app is definitely the easiest app to read efficiently, thanks to its clean, black-on-white theme. (When I'm driving down the highway, this is the app I'd rather be glancing at--not some complicated management app.)

The Twitter app provides simple functionality: You can tweet (with photos and location), edit your profile, retweet and reply to others, and find new content and people to follow via the "discover" tab. On your main feed, you can tap and hold any tweet to bring up a menu that lets you reply, retweet, favorite, copy, or share that tweet via text, email, or BBM. You'll find no multiple-account management in the Twitter app, but if you're not a professional user, that should be no issue. Twitter's overall strength is in its simplicity, and its app reflects that.
