    I've used many and still haven't settled. I keep rotating!

    Touiteur is my favorite GUI wise, I don't like Twidroyd's, but it functions well. I'm back to Seesmic at the moment, untill TweetDeck beta comes out.

    TweetDeck on the iPhone when I tried it was very good.

    will be useless for me if this doesnt have a widget that displays all the newest posts from facebook and twitter.

    currently using pure messenger, which is fine for scrolling through the posts, but I wish that when I tap on it, it uses the native fb\twitter app and goes straight to that post

    I'm the same way. I'm currently back to Touiteur, but lately it's been having issues with loading my timeline and not receiving notifications. Seesmic doesn't have the autocomplete function of @usernames.

    A quote from TweetDeck:

    "Leaked version of Android TweetDeck is an old build, recommend you avoid until real beta drops tomorrow"

    This is from their Twitter, so I guess the best thing is to wait for tomorrow! Looking forward to it!

    I've never used Tweetdeck, but I see you can integrate Twiiter & Facebook. Does Tweetdeck have the ability to reliably alert you of Facebook notifications?

    I couldn't wait and downloaded the leaked version last night. I'm not sure how the notifications work in the leaked version, I have turned them all off for now. Hopefully the settings in the release today will be better!

    I like how it shows Facebook and Twitter (and there are other social networks available) in one stream. However I hope you can select a stream to view in the future, as sometimes I prefer to select which feed I'm looking at.

    TweetDeck Arrives on Android

    "Check the company’s website in a few more hours for details on how you can be part of its Android beta program, and definitely let us know what you think of the app in the comments."

    That was six hours ago and still nothing for me. I don't want to miss this beta :p

    Well I asked TweetDeck on Twitter and got a pretty quick response from one of their analysts. The beta is being released this afternoon (BST) which would then be very very soon.

    Main question is if it has a Widget...

    Must be pretty damn soon if it is afternoon BST! There's not many hours left in the afternoon now! :D

    As for a widget, the beta I have doesn't have one, but as I said above, it's an old version so the one getting released today may have one! I don't usually use twitter widgets though so no big deal for me.

    It's definitely a *beta.* I have three Twitter accounts, and could figure out no way to display anything other than the first one alphabetically. (Thankfully it's not my most important one.) I ended up deleting it from my TweetDeck desktop, clearing all data and cache in the Android version, and now my most important Twitter account (#2 alphabetically) appears on my phone.

    And yes to the poster above who complained about font size. Way big!

    But will be interesting to see how it works.

    I think it has potential. In the future, I hope they'll include some widgets, allow a smaller font size, and various other tweaks and fixes. Seems like they're dedicated to making a good version of Tweetdeck for Android, so I think it should just get better.

    Definitely can tell it's a beta but it's not bad overall. I would like options like refresh interval and notification settings. Also has anyone figured out a way to get @ replies and direct messages to show up from two Twitter accounts? I'm logged in with both but only one of my accounts shows @ replies and DM.

    More apps should look as sexy as tweetdeck! I use tweetdeck on all of my computers, ipod touch, and soon my droid.

    I like the font size. Being a designer and a typography geek, the "in" thing at the moment is big type, suites me :p

    Will take getting used too, but seeing all my networks in one is growing on me. The only problem with that is my friends sometimes post the same thing to twitter and Facebook at the same time. Though I guess I'd still read it twice anyways!

    Is there a quicker way to see my lists other than clicking the friends button then my twitter account, then select the list?

    It seems to update as and when an update happens too. This is the same for the newest desktop TweetDeck when you sign up for it, brilliant feature, rather than updating every hour or whatever you set!

    So my updates are coming in pretty much every minute, but it doesn't SEEM to be draining the battery. Is Tweetdeck pushing the updates? Cuz that would be pretty sweet.
