Seesmic just launched a new version of its Android app, which, among other things, now offers support for multiple Twitter accounts and cross-posting from different accounts. The Seesmic team also worked hard on polishing the app's user interface and added a number of minor new features like extra large font in the app and the ability to change your Twitter password from within the app. Seesmic for Android now also remembers your scroll position in the timeline.
New Features: X-Large Fonts, Multiple Accounts, Better Auto-Correction
By default, Seesmic now loads new tweets on top of the older ones (just like Tweetie on the iPhone). A lot of users prefer this system of loading new tweets, but if you would rather see Seesmic jump straight to the top of your new tweets, you can switch this feature off in the settings menu.
According to Seesmic, support for multiple accounts was one of the most often requested features. Thanks to the app's support for multiple accounts, you can now also easily post the same message to multiple accounts simultaneously.
Another new feature in Seesmic for Android is support auto-correction and auto-capitalization in the composer.
But What About the iPhone?
Seesmic was already the best Twitter app on Android and this new release just takes it one step further. According to Seesmic's founder and CEO Loic Le Meur, over 100,000 people have already downloaded the app. We tested Seesmic for Android on a Nexus One and it's worth noting that the new version of the app feels even more responsive than the first release.
Given how well Seesmic for Android works, we can only hope that Seesmic will soon release an iPhone app (the company already offers a BlackBerry app). The last time we talked to Le Meur, however, he told us that the company wants to be able to offer something special and not just look like a "me-too" player on the iPhone, so it might still be a while before we get to see Seesmic on the iPhone.
