The iPhone and Twitter go together like peanut butter and chocolate. Okay, maybe not, but they're both darlings of the weberatti and enjoy popularity, prestige and -- when it comes to the App Store -- a growing plethora of choice combinations.
One such iPhone Twitter app enjoying attention lately is atebit's Tweetie, now on release 1.2. The nice thing for iPhone tweeters is that each Twitter client seems to focus on something different, giving us a good amount of diversity and choice. Tweetie, for example, excels at functionality. You can do a lot with it, perhaps more than any other Twitter client currently shipping. What kind of functionality? Where do I start!
Here we have Gathorc, Dwarf Paladin from the Skullcrusher server
(Gathorc gives a big shout-out to Guild Benevolent!). Sure, he's one of those annoying Alliance toons, but nevertheless to our eyes he's definitely got some bragging rights: getting exalted with Stormpike takes some serious grinding time, maxing out Herbalism is nothing to sniff at, and check out the list-o-purple, below!
If you have no idea what the previous paragraph is getting at, move along, nothing to see here. If you're proud of your World of Warcraft Toon and want to be able to show it off on the go, might we recommend our favorite of the iPhone WoW apps, Warcraft Characters (iTunes link, Free).
You can search by character name without having to specify your server, get full views of Basic info, Stats, Combat Stats, Gear, and Reputation, and of course save your favorites to more easily show them off.
Because, honestly, we know that you can't stop thinking about WoW and are going to bring it up the next time we're out -- you may as well have the ability to explain why in the name of the Earthmother you spec'd your Tauren Hunter Marksman instead of Beastmaster. Seriously, don't you read BigRedKitty?
Reader Jose wrote in to tell us that MMS has finally come to the iPhone! Er... Sorta:

Head over to Apple.com yet today? If you haven't seen it already, a new hero image has taken it's place boom smack in the middle of the home page and it's announcement couldn't be more mind-boggling: the App Store now includes over 15,000 iPhone applications, and iPhone users have downloaded apps more that 500,000,000 times.
Considering the App Store only launched 6 months ago, we're reminded of what Steve Jobs said last quarter -- that, in all his time at Apple, they'd never seen platform growth or attachment rates this fast and this furious.
Welcome to iPhone 101, TiPb's single point of success for new iPhone users, and for veterans who know new users and need a quick and helpful place to point them. This time we're going to take a look at how to personalize your iPhone with a different -- even custom -- wallpaper of your own choosing, including your own photos and artwork.
Now this is not something new here, but AT&T and American Idol are at it again. The past few days AT&T has been sending out text messages advertising one of Fox's TV shows. How do I know? I got one of them... Of course this message does not cost the recipient anything and they could easily opt out by responding to the spam with a simple "stop". Even so, it still has the ability to be bothersome to AT&T customers.
It's easy to get overwhelmed these days with the avalanche of information about how to get fit, take care of your body, live longer, live better, eat better, and so on. Diets come and go, new fitness machines are peddled faster than you can say "infomercial" and Chuck Norris' age seems to be the only constant.
It may be easy, then, to ignore the brain and forget the old adage "mind over matter." Without the mind, it won't really matter. The folks at lumosity.comunderstand the importance of exercising your brain and have a scientifically-proven method for doing so. Fortunately, exercising your brain doesn't require expensive equipment or hauling around heavy workout apparatus - if you own an iPhone or iPod Touch and can summon the physical strength to tap the glass, you can start exercising your brain now with their app, Speed Brain.
How does Speed Brain work? Read on after the break!

So if you are a Twitter user, and follow the Dev Team (@iphone_dev), you may have noticed an interesting early hour post. So it begins, all of the crazy rumors on what this new code word means. Rumors and speculation all set aside, our very own Rene, had a very good idea... iPod touch 2G Jailbreak perhaps?
So Macworld 2009 has come and gone. Sad, yes we all know. Although, that does not mean all of the special deals that were going on at the show are gone! One of discounts still floating around comes to us from RichardSolo.
