Twitter for iPhone and iPad receives update


and it immediately quits on my iPhone 4 (all updated) immediately and every time, even after a phone reboot. GOOD JOB Facebook!

If you use more than one device to stay on top of Twitter, then Twitter's own clients and web interface are basically worthless. I move from one computer to my iPhone to another computer back to my iPhone and then back to my first computer during the course of the day. I don't want to have to remember where I "left off" in my Twitter feed and then spend time scrolling around trying to find the last tweet I read.
One client that offers this "last read syncing" service is Echofon. I have their apps on my iPhone and my Macs (they also have a FireFox plugin/extension) so I never have to think about my last read tweet; whatever device I use next, Echofon scrolls to it and I can pick up right where I left off. Until Twitter itself offers this service or other third-party clients do it, I can't see using anything other than Echofon for Twitter.
Echofon comes in both free/ad-supported versions and premium/no-adds versions, available in the iTunes App Store and the Mac App Store, as well as their own website.sciatic nerve pain
