TweetDeck App To Return In 'Cutting Edge' Style For Android And iOS

Mobile users will be tweeting from the rooftops upon the good news that TweetDeck will be bringing out cutting edge apps to deliver an even more impressive next-generation service.

There's speculation that TweetDeck will be returning to Android devices in the form of a shiny new app, should the rumours of a job posting turn out to be true.

Developed by Brit Ian Dodsworth, the app has been keeping a low profile since it was acquired last May for the princely figure of £40 million - however, the company did unveil a new HTML5 desktop variant back in September; but their decision to wave goodbye to Facebook support as well as remove the link-shortening function saw many people put off by the service.

Yet there's hope that news of the development of a "cutting edge" Android app could save the day for TweetDeck.

The following details post on the company website state: "The TweetDeck team, working from London, is looking for new team members to work on our cutting edge Android app. We're building the next generation of a suite of clients that millions of people love and use everyday. You'll work on our small team, own the projects that you work on, and have a great time shipping products which change the way people communicate."

Twitter's redesign saw popular features such as direct messages and lists removed from the site, but hopefully TweetDeck can sway users into making a return to fill the microblogging gap.
