Android Community App of the Week: TweetCaster HD for Honeycomb

I must say that ever since I got my Motorola Xoom I've been wishing for a good Twitter client on honeycomb. TweetComb first came out and we did a mini review on that.

TweetCaster has came to the rescue for all us android tablet users and so far I love it.

CloudTalk Social Network launching for Android

There's a new player in the social networking game and it promises to give a voice that 800 lb. Gorillas like Facebook and Twitter can't ... emotion.
