Twitter is my favorite social media outlet. This is where I get my news, sports, learn about new apps, and mobile hardware, usually every hour. As Android devices and the OS have changed and developed, so have Twitter client apps. Here are four superb alternatives to Slices Pro for Twitter ($4.99)

Slices Pro for Twitter has been out for some time. Slices takes a slightly different approach to tweets; when you open the app, you are presented with your standard timeline. At the top of the screen, you can see the number of new tweets, mentions and messages. There is a button to create a new tweet and to jump to the top of the timeline. To access the settings of the app, hit the menu button. There you can modify some settings such as number of tweets to display, notifications, other services you can log into like Facebook, and add multiple Twitter accounts.

So what makes Slices so unique? It lets you browse a Twitter directory by category. When I started my app it listed sports, gaming, and local, which is definitely a neat option. Think of slices as another way to create lists. Another cool feature of Slices is that you can see your statistics such as top tweeters, your tweets, and the time of tweets. You can easily share your slices and bookmarks.
