Micro-blogging internet site Twitter is rolling out a redesigned Android app based on Google’s material layout philosophy.
The cloth layout uses grid-based totally layouts, responsive animations and transitions, padding, and intensity effects which include lights and shadows.
The app is now split into four tabs – home, Moments, Notifications, and Messages – that you can circulate between by using tapping the icons on the top of the display, or the usage of a horizontal swipe.
there is also a floating movement bar to compose new tweets. Dragging throughout from the left-hand side will display a side menu with shortcuts in your profile, lists and Twitter highlights.
The drop-down arrow at the pinnacle of the menu will let you turn bills.
Twitter stated the new design is rolling out to all people on Android on Wednesday and can be available after an app update.
“these days, we are introducing a new appearance and experience for Twitter for Android – a redesigned app that aligns with the pleasant of Android,” said Maryann Vellanikaran, Engineering manager, Twitter for Android, in a weblog put up on Tuesday.
Twitter is reportedly all set to exchange its patron product boss Jeff Seibert, who took over corporation’s center product crew remaining September. Seibert, who co-based crash reporting solution Crashlytics, will go returned to jogging Twitter’s developer product suite material, which he turned into doing before the merchandising within the fall, a media file said.
Twitter still does no longer have a permanent alternative for Seibert and is making plans to present Ed Ho, a senior engineering director, who has been at Twitter for two years, the obligation to fill the role on an interim foundation, the record brought.
