Boid has been developing at a rapid pace but it still lacks one major feature… Push Notifications.
Developers have been working hard on it and it is likely to arrive in the near future.

Push notifications would allow the user to get updates about mentions and direct messages almost in real time.
This is one of the core features of the official Twitter app for Android and we would soon have it on Boid too.
