Twitter testing new design for Android app

New York, April 15 (IANS) Micro-blogging website Twitter is testing a new design for an Android app version to make it more user-friendly and easy to navigate, a media report said.

Several people using Twitter’s alpha and beta apps have begun seeing a design that places Twitter’s four core areas — main feed, Moments, notifications, and direct messages — as large tabs across the top of the screen, The Verge reported on Wednesday.

The new design is letting the users toggle between them either by tapping on the tab or by swiping side to side, making it much easier to navigate and explore than the main version of Twitter’s app.

Currently, these four tabs are tiny buttons at the top of the screen and users have to exit one screen in order to open the next tab.

“The new design also opens up a lot of Twitter’s other features in a friendlier way. Right now, things like Highlights, settings, and even your own profile are hidden away in the ‘…’ menu,” the report said.

This test design allows the user to work on more screen space as it allows you to access features from a pane that slides out from the left-hand side of the screen.

Twitter also frees up some space by incorporating floating buttons and removing three tweet buttons that ran along the bottom of the screen.
