HTC phone owners can get a full-screen experience, and ‘Me’ tab wonkiness is fixed in latest update
The official Twitter app for Android, given a major visual overhaul last week, has been updated again today with a couple of important bug fixes. First off, the “Me” tab, which would occasionally fail to load, should now be fully functional at all times. And owners of HTC devices will welcome the fix for an issue which left them with a dead menu bar at the bottom of the screen. (That’s not listed in the official changelog for the new ver. 4.0.1, but we’ve confirmed it on our own devices.)
HTC devices without a physical menu key — including the HTC One — must use an on-screen menu bar in certain apps, losing a portion of the screen in the process. Since last week’s update the official Twitter client no longer used the legacy menu key, however the app still continued to show the (now non-functional) bar on HTC phones, much to the chagrin of users. As you can see in the photo above, that’s no longer the case.
The changelog also lists UI improvements for Honeycomb devices, if anyone out there’s still rocking an Android 3.x tablet.
