Slices for Android

Very nice looking and all of that. I agree with the review that I'm not entirely sold on the idea of slices. It would be nice if I could convert my lists into slices. A lot of the consumption mechanism feels like a hybrid of  Twitter lists and Google+ Circles. Slices even decided to implement their own discovery tab with various topics containing various slices of people curated by them for people to 'slice'

Is it just me or does it sound like a really really really bad idea for them to come up with a client like this in the wake of Twitter giving the cold shoulder to developers who might develop apps that take eyeballs away from the streams controlled by Twitter? Like the discovery tab. This is like a big part of Twitter's financial future and right here we find these guys implementing their own which will probably not see any promoted tweets or anything of the sort.

Kudos on the great design. But honestly, the developers are either really brave, really stupid or just plain Trolls.
