By Posted 1 May 2011, 16:18

If you own an Android-based device and you’ve previously downloaded the HeyWire mobile messaging application, then I think we have some news that could be of interest to you. We’ve recently received word that the hugely popular Android app has just been updated to version 2.0.

As Dusan over on the intomobile.com website recently noted, the new update now features Gtalk support, enabling users to chat with their Gmail friends while they are out and about. It also features an online Buddies screen, which enables you to see which friends are currently online on each chat service.

Version 2.0 also features SmartSMS, which allows users to disable sound notifications and send auto responses during times when they’d rather not be disturbed. The app now features a new user interface, so users can quickly access commonly used features such as SmartSMS and TweetNow.

The added TweetNow feature provides users with access to the HeyTweets feature in just one tap, enabling them to quickly and easily send Tweets on HeyWire via SMS. The updated application will also enable users to share content with friends using the ‘share via’ dialog on Android.

Do you use the HeyWire for Android app? If so, are there any other changes that you would have wanted in the new update?
