Best Alternatives to Twitter App for Android and iOS

5. Echofon

Echofon for Twitter

This app is familiar to me since when it was just a plug-in to Firefox and it was called Twitter Fox. It is not the best app you can find out there, but it is very simple, if you are looking for this kind of experience. The only problem you can find in Echofon are the very intrusive ads. Since it is totally free, it has many ads. According to Echofon developers, this app is the only free Twitter alternative that brings push notifications and inline photo previews. It is available for both iOS and Android.
