Here they are, in alphabetical order:
Chant for Twitter – One of the most recently released Twitter apps on this list, Chant is currently an ongoing beta project which looks to bring a simplified experience to your phone. Note that it does feature in-app advertising which the developer advises has a “clever placement approach” that shouldn’t annoy users.
Echofon for Twitter (beta) – Standout features for this one include light and dark themes, a widget, and multiple account management. One of our favorite details is the way in which is will synchronize across all
Echofon apps, regardless of platform or device. This ensures you don’t have to read the same tweets, mentions, or direct messages twice. Future features include mute, gap detection, and in-app browser/in-app picture viewer.
Echofon Pro – Like most other premium Twitter apps, $4.99 will remove ads from your experience.
Falcon for Twitter (Donate) – One of the newer Twitter apps we’ve fallen in love with, details include a double sliding menu UI, phone and tablet optimization, and real-time and expandable notifications. Choose from either a light or dark theme and customize this one in nearly every aspect. At $1.99 it is as good as other, more pricey alternatives.
Falcon Pro – Get rid of the pesky ads for under a buck ($.99). Yes, it is lower than the donate version right now.

Details include the ability to schedule Twitter updates, upload photos, view click stats, and receive notifications.
Janetter – Popular on Windows and Mac, this app handles multiple (limited to three) accounts, features long press shortcuts, and allows for muting keywords or users. Create a bunch of bookmarks and synchronize your favorite keywords, lists, or lists at once.
Janetter Pro – For $6.99 users will remove the timeline ads and pick up support for up to 7 accounts.
