I grabbed this last night, it's definitely one of the best Twitter clients for Android with strong features and a really pretty UI....but it is missing some features that some of the other top clients do have, details on that in a review to be posted later tonight
This does look really nice and runs as smoothly as I hoped it would. Granted, it doesn't have some features like the main one I use (Twidroid) but I'm sure they'll update it after getting some feedback. And as for the price difference, if it's simply a choice between ads and no ads, I'm sticking with the free version. This is a great start for their app on our devices.
