TweetCaster Pro for Android crashing like mad on my Honeycomb tablet. Switched to freshly updated Twitter for Android 3.2.0


I like TweetCaster Pro for Android ($1.99 in the Amazon App Store and $4.99 in Google Play) a lot. In fact, it has been the default Twitter client on Android phones and tablets that I use. Unfortunately, however, it has been crashing nearly everytime I open in on a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 (Honeycomb 3.2) in the past few days. It crashes so often that I deleted my account settings in the app and switched back to the recently updated Twitter app. The Twitter for Android 3.2.0 update provides the following enhancements.

  1. Updated design and improved relevance of Discover stories
  2. Activity in Discover tab shows who your connections follow, updates to their lists, and which Tweets they retweet and favorite
  3. Spelling suggestions and related searches in search results
  4. Username autocomplete in search
  5. New push notifications for when your Tweets have been retweeted, favorited, or when you have new followers
  6. New languages: Traditional Chinese, Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, Finnish, Polish, Hungarian, Thai
