Tweetie for Mac Shows Where iPhone Twitter is Headed?

We generally don't cover Mac or Windows news on the site, even though most people who have an iPhone will at some point plug it into a laptop or desktop. And we almost never cover software that isn't directly involved with that plug in connection. Why the exception? Tweetie for Mac began as Tweetie for iPhone, one of the most popular and robust iPhone Twitter clients in the App Store, and as much as the iPhone version set the foundation for Tweetie for Mac, it looks like Tweetie for Mac rebuilt that foundation for the next iPhone release.

Quick App: Birdhouse Twitter Notepad for iPhone

Birdhouse is a hybrid app of sorts. It lets you take offline notes, store them as drafts, and email those drafts individualy or en masse for "backup". The differentiator here is that it's also a multi-user Twitter client that lets you publish said drafts to the internet's favorite 140 character micro-blogging platform. It also lets you visit your Twitter history to un-publish (i.e. trash) tweets if you later regret posting them. (Or if you just want to correct an error and repost, like I just did.)

It may replace Apple's built-in Notes app for hardcore Twitter users, but since it's exclusively a drafting and publishing app, it isn't intended to replace more full featured Twitter-clients like Twitterrific and Tweetie.

A clean, considered, dare I say crisp little application, it will no doubt elicit all manner of oohs and ahs from the Twitteratti, while those not fond of Twitter or uncomfortable being overly artsy about their tweets would do well to shake their heads and move on.

Personally, I'm enjoying it thus far. And more than I suspected I would.

$3.99 via the iTunes App Store.

Quick App: Coffee Buzz=coffee+twitter

Coffee Buzz is a fun little coffee app for $.99 from the App Store. If you like coffee, location services and twitter, this is a great tool for you!

Coffee Buzz works like this: you have a list of people everywhere and nearby that are drinking coffee. You can tap on their name and the app will tell you where they are and what they drank. One of a couple of the nice enhancements in the new version is that you can create your own coffee drink and edit a location name. You can also use the app to search for local coffee places. So, if you are stuck somewhere and need a coffee fix, this is a handy app! It links the phone number, address and Google Maps; very convenient.

Do you use twitter? You can enter your twitter username and password to post what your drinking and where you are at. In today's world of tweets and status updates, this is a very welcome addition.

If you are looking for simple app to share your coffee lust, you can't go wrong with Coffee Buzz.

Review: Tweetie Twitter Client for the iPhone

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!

On Twitter and SMS and Why it Shouldn't Matter to iPhone Users

In case you haven't read it already, our editor-in-chief, Dieter Bohn, has an outstanding article up at sibling-site WMExperts highlighting his top 5 reasons Twitter is better than SMS (and vice versa).

There's a lot of intertube fuss about SMS lately, as a recent New York Times article once again shone the spotlight on the disgustingly dirty price gouging (and potential fixing) that goes on when it comes to SMS rates in North America. Basically, SMS (at 160 bytes/characters) is ridiculously cheap for the carriers to transmit, no matter what the scale, and yet the prices have doubled from $0.10 to $0.20 on many networks over the last few years. Voice, by contrast, involves much more data and is much more "expensive" in terms of infrastructure costs. North Americans will pay ludicrous sums of money for "cheap" SMS but not for "expensive" voice, so the carriers take advantage.

Dieter points out that the cost, community, compatibility, control, and context of Twitter give it a clear advantage of SMS, even as the discoverability, dilution of quality, dropping 20 characters, downtime, and potential delays in notification (outside the US) make it still far from perfect.

Flaws and all, Dieter is moving towards Twitter (@backlon) and away from SMS. Am I going to do the same? I already have (@reneritchie) and without really considering it. But here's the thing -- I have considered that not only should I not have to consider it, I don't think any iPhone user should. (Or any @theiphoneblog follower either!)

Review: Pinger, the Social Dialer for iPhone

It's been awhile since we've heard anything from Pinger, creators of a service that allows you to trade voicemails like they were emails. Their previous offering was interesting but not ultimately useful for most people. Their new offering, a clever iPhone application (iTunes link) that combines a social media aggregator, a dialer, and an IM client is interesting and likely useful for most people. For me, it addresses my #1 gripe about the iPhone. It's also free.

Twitter Suspends Most International SMS Service

Sorry, TiPb lovers in the UK. Actually, sorry TiPb lovers everywhere except the US, Canada, and India: you can't really follow us on Twitter anymore -- at least via SMS. See, Twitter can't pay those international SMS fees anymore:

In a statement, the company said that when you send one message to Twitter and they send it to ten followers, the users haven't been charged ten times - and Twitter picked up the costs.
