Sobees offers Twitter clients for Windows, the web, and Google Android. The company started out a few years ago as a desktop widget maker offering all sorts of widgets for reading RSS feeds, searching the web, and performing other actions. But Sobees is focusing primarily on its Twitter client at the moment, and it shows. I installed the Android client this week, and it’s one of the best Twitter apps I’ve used on my Google Nexus One.

Sobees for Android has all the basic features you’d expect from a mobile Twitter client including the ability to sort updates by replies, direct messages, and your overall timeline. You can also view profiles of users and even follow or unfollow users from the Sobees app. Sobees also lets you manage multiple Twitter accounts and flip between accounts quickly and easily.

The Twitter client lets you read cached messages while you’re offline. And when you’re online you can view trending topics or conduct searches.

And there are a few nifty features when you’re updating your status including the ability to geotag your Tweets, share photos, and shorten URLs.

Unfortunately, Sobees faces some pretty strict competition… from Twitter, which recently launched an official app for Android. But Twitter for Android is only available for Android 2.1 devices such as the Google Nexus One and Motorola Droid.

Sobees for Android is available as a free download from the Android Market.
