Twitterrific updates brings iPad 2 camera support and much more


Love Twitterific and like the updates, especially the stay at top/auto updates and larger fonts. Tweetbot is similar, but tries to do too much (like all the other Twitter apps) and having to double-tap to follow links is a non-starter for me. Both have beautiful interfaces, but Twitterific is cleaner.

I have had Twitteriffic on my iDevices (iPhone/iPad) for quite some time now. I have never used it as my primary since it seems like most other clients out there surpass it in terms of features. Sure, it has a “clean” interface, but that doesn’t always win out. The Twitter streaming API is a great feature to have, which I use on both Ecofon and Tweetings. However, the nicest feature of those two I mentioned which surprises me that Twitteriffic has not implemented is the syncing of read status across platforms (iPhone, iPad, and Mac). Since Twitteriffic is on all three platforms, it should at least be kept in sync with all the devices you use the application on. I have enjoyed this feature first on Tweetings and now Ecofon. I stopped using Tweetings because it was just so darn buggy on the iphone and ipad.
