I've always had a bit of a love hate relationship with Twitter. It's something I dip in and out of on monthly basis. I prefer following to being followed (stalker anyone?) I'm not great at updating regularly and to be honest I ramble so much that 140 characters is never enough (word whore.)
What makes slices so different to every other twitter app out there is the handy little explore button. By clicking explore your thrown in to a world of categories from celebs to humor. These are then divided in to sub categories allowing you to browse different twitter feeds and easily follow a variety of different accounts that you may never stumble on otherwise.
The other handy little tool Slices brings forward is its grouping tool strangely enough named.... Slices. Basically you can group together your twitter overlords in to groups (Slices) and create an individual timeline of say celebs, comedians or news. To be honest while this is a neat little feature I don't think its something I will be using regularly. I prefer my Twitter Line to read from Ricky Gervais followed by The Verge followed by the Local news that Mrs Coggins cat has been retrieved from the clutches of an evil mad man. As they say variety is the spice of life.
One thing struck me while using Slices though. It is very well polished and in my mind OneLouder obviously see this as their new flagship twitter client. But where does this leave all those that paid for the ad free version of TweetCaster? Slices older brother did receive an update recently but how long will it be supported before they try and push people over to it's better looking sibling which again comes in a free Ad supported form and a paid no adds version.
Overall I would say if your a twitter fan you can't get any better than Slices on Android currently but I wouldn't blame you if your a paid up TweetCaster user feeling a bit irked. Try the Ad supported version and see what you think.
Slices is available for both iTunes and Android

Coming soon: Are in app advertisements really that intrusive? do you pay much attention to them? Would you pay for the luxury of not having in app ads over getting a free version?
