Best App.net apps for iPhone: Riposte, Netbot, and Felix!

Looking for the absolute best iPhone apps in the App Store? You've come to the right place! App.net provides a ton of different services, including the Alpha micro-blogging platform that works just like Twitter but with a larger character limit and a business model that's far more friendly to developers and people in general. All of that has combined to make App.net a nerd-oasis on the internet and on the iPhone. There are lots of different App.net apps on the App Store each with their own unique strengths and weaknesses. But which ones are the very best?

Netbot updated with direct Messages on App.net, goes free in effort to spur service adoption

When Netbot was launched back in October of last year, we praised it as a fine client for the fledgling App.net service. Since then both the service and the app have evolved, with version 1.3 of Netbot gaining support for the new Messaging API. Additionally, in an effort to spur adoption of App.net, developer Tapbots has decided to reduce the price for Netbot to free.

Push notifications, search come to Netbot for app.net

Both push notifications and search have come to Tapbots' popular app.net (ADN) client, Netbot, thanks to today's version 1.1. Update. While push notifications was likely the last big missing piece on many people's ADN puzzles -- our own Netbot review included -- both new features nicely round out what was already one of the best clients on any platform.

Get push notifications for Netbot with Adian for iPhone, a competing App.net client

There's no denying that Netbot by Tapbots is the most popular iOS client for App.net (ADN), but it was a little surprising and disappointing that the client launched without support for push notifications. Tapbots did release a statement saying that notifications will be coming as soon as ADN releases the appropriate protocols to do so, but other clients, like Felix and Rivr, have found their own ways to offer push notifications. Another such client is Adian which has recently been updated to include support to redirect push notification to open Netbot. Yes, you read that right, a competing app is improving Netbot.

Netbot vs. Felix vs. Rivr: App.net apps for iPhone shootout!

While App.net (ADN) may be pretty new, it doesn't mean many users aren't already on it, including iMore and our staff. Even though the service hasn't been around for very long, there are already some choices when it comes to choosing an ADN iPhone app.

Netbot, Felix, and Rivr are all fully functional ADN apps for iPhone but is one better than the other, and more importantly, which one should you use? Follow along and we'll help you decide.
