My Thoughts on Twitter For iPhone

Leave a comment


Twitter For iPhone, formerly Tweetie 2, has landed in the iTunes App Store! Easy to search, follow trends, See DMs, videos and photos make Twitter For iPhone very easy to use.
What’s New?
Twitter for iPhone has been refined in many areas from Tweetie 2. Search, for example now displays New Tweets, Nearby Tweets or searching for Users all from a single window. Viewing User information is easier as well, you no longer have to scroll to see if you are following a particular user. Also, It no longer matters whether you have a twitter account when you first launch Twitter for iPhone because you now are able to sign up for an account within the app!
Thankfully, Retweeting is no longer confusing, as it was in Tweetie 2, you now can clearly see who originated the Tweet, as well as who retweeted the tweet.
I do wish Tweeting Music, the ability to send tweets to other apps, such as Evernote, and OmniFocus would be included in an update. You can however use Instapaper and ReadItLater which is a plus.

FREE for a limited time!

The Verdict?

Twitter for iPhone is a welcome improvement over Tweetie 2. While it does feel a tad clunkier, overall, I think it will be the dominant Twitter client of choice for most users. If you need multiple columns however, you will want to check out TweetDeck. Seesmic’s Twitter client has been submitted to the App Store, but has yet to be approved by Apple.

What’s new

Tweetie is now Twitter! We didn’t just do a name change, we’ve added a bunch of new stuff.

Search has been reorganized, now you can search all tweets and find users in the same spot, view Top Tweets and Browse Suggested users.

Search results now include Top Tweets, try it with Trends…winner combo!

You can now use Twitter without an account! Search, Browse uses, view trends and top tweets.

Sign-up is now available within the application as well, complete with Suggested user list.

More tab has been re-organized to accomplish all this. Users with one account can add a second account under the Accounts and Settings button here.

Actions we’ve found people use most, like Retweet have been moved to the main actions bar.

Minor tweaks were made to tweet rendering so they match Twitter.com tweets.

Sign up or Sign in
















Sign up or sign in, those are some of the new features for the Official Twitter App.

The Tweetie 2 app has been change to the Official Twitter App, They improved and added many new features but they are still missing many features other apps have. Hootsuite and Osfoora For iPhone are still the best for me, I will still be using those apps cos they have the features i need. For example the ability to post the same tweet using multiple accounts, that is one of my favorite features on Hootsuite and it’s missing on Twitter for iPhone.

Settings  are still the same as Tweetie 2 when posting or when tweeting, nothing was change but new improvements would have improved the user experience.
