TWIDROYD is a Twitter client that allows you to see links on tweets (photos, videos, articles) without opening a browser
This the legacy version of TWIDROYD (also free). It has just removed Whatthetrend.com due to Twitter TOS change.
If the most of your Twitter contacts post links to articles, videos or photos, and you can't avoid checking all of them out, this is your app. Once you've integrated your Twitter account on TWIDROYD it will displays the feed in the regular way if you keep your phone in vertical. But if you but rotate the screen horizontally it will show two frames. On the left frame (small one) there will be displayed the tweets and on the right frame you will see a browser preview of the links next to those tweets.
If you double-tap on the right frame, you will get full-screen preview of the webpage, picture or video that was attached to the tweet, to read, see or watch it properly. No need to open a browser screen. Fast and easy.
Besides this (from my point of view) amazing feature, TWIDROYD allows you to perform everything that is included in the official Twitter app. That's it: post, retweet, send/check direct messages, mentions, search contacts, multi-account, make lists, and so on. Regarding the links, you will be able to set as favorite the pages you visit from the app, URL shortening, photo/video posting among other. Finally, other extra features as notifications settings, location & geotagging are included. There is a screen widget (small, medium, large) that allows you to post to Twitter and Facebook, search friends and preview tweets. There isn't links preview on the screen widget, but you can get into the app just by clicking on the Droyd (logo).
TWIDROYD has been developed by Twitter Clients by UberMedia / PostUp. They've just launched TWIDROYD and its different versions but they're reaching great success. The amount of downloads and the rating are a reliable proof of it.
This is a "must have" for Twitter-addicts. At least for those who use it as their main info source.
The team from Twidroyd would like to bid farewell and say thank you to all our valuable users for the long-term loyalty!

Was a great app until the the twitcons stopped working.
Why doesn't muted followers STAY muted?! & why can't I see who RT'd me?! Fix it!!
It's a decent app, wish it had more features .
Faster timeline loadups, faster service. Thats really all you need
Good with ALMOST everything!
An incredible app but it doesn't show trending topics.
Other than the muting problems and the issues with updating twitcons and trending topics, this is a top notch app
People don't stay on mute.. overall its a great app
