All the cool kids were hanging out at the IFA (short for Internationale Funkausstellung) in Germany this past week, where Samsung announced the 2014 Edition Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet at its Samsung Unpacked event.

Frank Ritter, a writer at German blog androidnext, spent some hands-on time with the next generation Note and found it to be running a new tablet optimized version of Twitter. Like any great Android enthusiast, Frank snagged a copy and shared it with the rest of the world to enjoy.

This latest version brings a fresh, intuitive, and standardized Android layout that makes better use of the screen real estate available on tablet size devices. Oddly, the About screen states this particular version as being 4.1.1, while the current Play Store app is at 4.1.7.

Regardless, it's worth noting that this version is specifically designed for use on tablets, and prior installations of Twitter should be removed before installing.

Note: Before installing, open the tablet's security settings screen and check the option to allow "Unknown Sources." Doing so, enables installation of apps from sources other than the Google Play Store.
