Twitter apps for Android users. Most seem to have their personal favorite, but regardless of how well an app runs, or how nice it looks, the lack of certain features will end up being a turn off for some.

Alcatel and their entire line of smartphones hasn't slowed down. The company is still releasing them by the truckload, but this year they're going to offer some top-tier models as well with a focus on quality. Instead of all mid-range devices.
