Continuing our series on how to create Android Apps from different sources on the Internet, since many of you have Twitter accounts to post Tweets or read others’ feeds, today we’ll show you how to create an app from your Twitter feed.
Start Creating Your Twitter Android App
To get started, open the Website Widgets page on Twitter and choose “Profile Widget”. Enter your username and you’ll get your widget. Note that you can adjust many settings here such as color and size, and you can also preview your widget. When finished, click the “Finish & Grab Code” button like Dean McCrae .
Now copy your widget code and go to the AppsGeyser website. Click the “Create Now” button and choose “Web Widget Code”. Paste the Twitter widget code and fill the remaining fields. You’ll then get your Android App that you can offer to your fellow followers.
Reasons to Create a Twitter Feed Android App
You can also create a separate Android App for watching specific topic. Open the Twitter Website Widgets page and this time, choose “Search Widget”. Here you can input your search phrase or use a more advanced query. For example, if you enter search phrase “android phone” you’ll get widget that will show all real-time tweets containing the android phone phrase. And if you enter “android phone OR tablet” you’ll get all tweets about the android phone and tablets. To make more sophisticated queries, visit Twitter’s help pages.
Once you have your Twitter widget, open the AppsGeyser website and follow the same steps as above. This type of App can be very helpful when you need to follow trending topics on the go – for example, for conferences or trade shows.
