Listen to tweets with Tweet Speaker for iPhone

Tweet Speaker is a new, unique Twitter app that reads tweets to you. This is a great way to stay current with Twitter during times that you can's look at your iPhone, like when driving, jogging, cleaning the house, or shopping. It's got a fantastic user interface, and integrates cutting edge voice technology that'ss really smart about expanding Twitter slang like RT into "retweet", and @ usernames into the associated real names.

Tweetbot - A Twitter Client with Personality has just updated to version 1.6 and with it, brings Tweetmarker support. Tweetmarker is a service that marks the last read tweet in your timeline so that it can be synced between other Twitter clients.

Since its release, Tweetbot has been my favorite Twitter client on the iPhone. Tweetmarker is a great addition to the app and I look forward to what future updates may bring.

Twitterrific for iPhone and iPad now syncs across devices

Twitterrific for iPhone and iPad has been updated with Tweet Marker, a new feature that syncs timeline positions across all versions.

This new feature makes me really excited! To me, it's a no-brainer for developers to include this ability with their Twitter apps and I look forward to it becoming the norm. Now if Twitterrific would just add native push notifications, it'd be pretty darn close to perfect.

Details and screenshots after the break.

I say was because Twitter's swerve away from the developer friendliness that helped them build their platform and their rapid acceleration into ownership plays that may -- or may not -- help them ensure its future has led WhereCloud to stop development.

Martin Dufort, who TiPb interviewed as part of our Developer Spotlight series two weeks ago, explains it was the the culmination of 4 changes by Twitter that led to his company's decision:
