Quick App: Twitbit 1.1

Twitbit [$4.99 - iTunes link] is a Twitter client for iPhone and iPod touch that includes built-in push notification for not only @mentions but direct messages as well.

It was not long ago that Rene introduced us all to the app, and we wouldn't be telling the truth if we didn't say things started off pretty rough with the initial launch. TiPb is happy to report, however, with the latest upcoming update, 1.1, things have changed greatly.

  • More granular push configuration
  • Selectively push DMs, mentions, neither, or both.
  • Better push support while the app is running (new message badges, vibrations, etc.)
  • New direct message workflow
  • Summary/inbox view that's modeled after the built-in "Messages" app, organized by user
  • Threaded conversations
  • Landscape tweet and direct message composition
  • Built-in photo browser with landscape support
  • Landscape mode in the built-in web browser
  • Saved searches
  • Person search
  • Saved timeline position
  • More tweet actions (open in browser, send in email)
  • More browser actions (send in email, post link in tweet)
  • Customizable tab order
  • Customizable re-tweet format
  • Fix for the "HTTP 401" error when posting tweets and direct messages.
  • Lots of other UI enhancements and bug fixes

TiPb has been putting this latest beta through it's paces the past two weeks and so far so we've been impressed. Look for Twitbit 1.1 to hit Apple's App Store any day now.

Swine Flu Tracker Coming to iPhone App Store

It was only a matter of time before some developer, in this case IntuApps, created an application revolving around the Swine Flu and why not, it's actually pretty informative and it will be free. According to Techcrunch you can expect the following features:

"you can see the current Threat Level for the disease, a map showing confirmed and suspected cases, a symptoms area to inform people, and an alert page for breaking news on Swine Flu."

This one can be very useful for a lot of people but now the big question is when will this application be approved?

NIN iPhone App Makes Bono Pee His Pleather Pants

If you are a Twitter addict and are following Trent Reznor (Yes, it really is the one and only TR), you would be well aware that the official Nine Inch Nails application is making it's way onto the App Store any time now, for FREE.

You may be thinking "many bands have apps in the App Store", which may be true. But to be honest, they are pretty poor attempts. If anyone can get a iPhone application done the right way, it would be Reznor.
