Tweetdeck for Android! (Its a beta)

The good news is that the much beloved app TweetDeck is in beta for Android. That means that if you've been jonesing for your multi-account fix, here it is finally. Its a basic app that shows you a single stream of Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare and Google Buzz activity. It looks very promising:

Of course as a beta, there are a few things its lacking:
1. No customizable refresh intervals
2. No customizable alerts (it alerts for all new tweets)
3. No resizable font. This annoys me quite a bit as the font is HUGE.
It doesn't show images inline, but tapping on a tweet does show a nice preview of the image:

For a beta, it shows they are definitely on the right track. Until at least the refresh rate is fixed, I'm going to keep it on a back burner, but I will keep a close eye on it. If you would like to keep an eye on it you can pick it up here.
