Quick Review: Twitteriffic on iPad

Twitteriffic on the iPad is straight-up elegant and clean. Although it's not quite the powerhouse of Twitter mania that is Tweetdeck on iPad, it makes up for it by having a nicer and more intuitive layout.

In portrait mode, you get a large list of tweets, but the real excitement comes in landscape. Twitteriffic uses the now-familiar setup of a list of options on the left, the main window on the right. Your options are simple and straightfoward - viewing recent tweet, messages, direct messages, favorites, a search bar, and so on. I'm especially happy to see lists on the sidebar - that's a feature that's been lacking on many other Twitter clients. The app offers a $4.99 in-app purchase to enable multiple accounts and eliminating ads. Twitteriffic also does a great job with links - photos appear in a small pop-up and web-links appear in a large pop-up browser that's very usable. Tapping a profile brings up an iPhone-style pop-up that lets you browse that user's tweets.

I do sort of wish the lefthand bar was customizable - I'd rather see multiple accounts listed there rather than Twitter trends. You also can't change accounts on an active tweet you're writing - instead you have to back out of one account and into another.

Quick Review: TweetDeck on iPad

TweetDeck on the iPad is a mixed bag - most of the contents of that bag are utterly awesome for the power-twitter user. If you need to follow a lot of Twitter streams then there's simply no better way to track them all than TweetDeck. If you use TweetDeck on the desktop, you can set up a TweetDeck account and have your chosen columns synchronized between your desktop and iPad. If you have multiple Twitter accounts, you can send from multiple accounts too.

The not-so-awesome part of the bag comes when you want to view a link from a tweet. In landscape mode you simply can't. In portrait mode what happens is the tweet appears in a at the top of the screen. You can also view profiles, recent tweets, and more. For displaying a single tweet, that area is simply giant. For displaying a web page linked from a tweet, it's maddeningly small.

I said in the video that TweetDeck might my favorite iPad Twitter client, but I'm finding more and more that the portrait mode isn't quite working out for me.

Closed vs. Open, Control vs. Chaos -- What's Best for Apple, the iPhone and iPad?

Yesterday at Macworld two events helped clarify something I've been discussing with Dieter for a while now -- Apple, the iPhone and iPad, and closed vs. open systems, control vs. chaos. These two events were a presentation by John Gruber of Daring Fireball concerning the 10 biggest problems faced by Apple, and a brief conversation with Leo Laporte of TWiT about Google Buzz.

Twitter Eats Own "Dogfood", Previews New Mobile WebApp for iPhone

Twitter is previewing a new iPhone-friendlier version of their website, mobile.twitter.com, this time "eating their own dogfood" by using the same APIs they provide to developers. While Twitter has long had their m.twitter.com mobile site it's fair to say it was eclipsed by native iPhone apps making use of those APIs.

iTunes Gets Twitter Accounts, Bing and Google Get Twitter Real-Time Search

Big news round Twitter-way, with Apple adding a few more official Twitter accounts, and Microsoft Bing and Google paying for unrestricted access to real-time search Twitter's firehose of user status posts.

First up, while Apple's never been accused of "getting" social media, and it may come as a surprise they're using Twitter at all, it's not so surprising that -- rather than customer feedback, support, or insight into the iron curtain that shrouds Cupertino -- these accounts are just news/marketing updates on when the latest music and media hits the world's most popular download service. (And some seem less than active at the moment). Baby steps?

App Review: TwiBit 2.0 Twitter Client for iPhone

TwitBit 2.0 Forum Review by llofte. For more Forum Reviews, see the TiPb iPhone App Store Forum Review Index!

Surprisingly, nearly 3 months after iPhone 3.0's release, there are only a few twitter applications that offer push notifications. Twitbit is one of them. Version 1.x wasn't compelling enough for me to use as my primary client, but the latest 2.0 update is rather impressive and brings Twitbit up to par with other great Twitter clients. The design is clean and simple yet not lacking in important features.

App Walkthrough: Tweetie 2.0 Twitter Client for iPhone

Tweetie 2.0 [$2.99 - iTunes link] is the second generation release of one of the iPhone's most popular Twitter clients. According to developer Atebits, it's also a ground-up re-write -- it even has a snazzy new gray, single, cut-out bubble icon to prove it -- the only thing 2.0 having in common with 1.0 being the name. I'd argue that point -- they're also both darn good Twitter clients, and they both share a price of $2.99.

That's right. Since Apple doesn't (yet?) provide a mechanism for upgrades (which to many developers means incentive and to many users means discount), and since in-app purchase can only add content, not replace an entire app, Atebits is packaging Tweetie 2.0 as a whole new app. And they're charging the same price. In other words, whether you bought the first Tweetie or not, you'll have to buy Tweetie 2.0.

Is it worth it? Let's take a look...

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.

Pictures of Twitbit 1.1 in action after the break!
