Welcome to AppJudgment, Revisions3’s new program. It’s all about mobile applications on the iPhone, Android, Blackberry and when they actually ship something, it doesn’t come with the phone, the Pre. Now today, I’ve got eight Twitter clients on my iPhone. There are something like 8,000 worth of Twitter clients in the iPhone and I’ve got well, four that are worth twitting about. Stay tune to find out what they are.
Howdy? I’m Patrick Norton and welcome to AppJudgment, Revision3’s mobile phone application review show. Looking for a better way to use Twitter on the iPhone? Me too. Getting tweets by SMS, awkward using the Safari browser, even worse. Fortunately, your fellow Twitter enthusiasts have written about a zillion Twitter clients for the iPhone. I’ve got four of them for you today.
A lot of folks let Twitterrific, one the earliest iPhone apps when applications like Twinkle Twitter phone and Tweetie showed up with better performance and more features. If you haven’t seen Twitterrific since the 2.0 upgrade, you haven’t seen a greatly improved application. First off, a new user interface that keeps things clean and a feature and on the filter icon tweet, you don’t want to see right now, go away and lose until you unfilter them. It also has a search trends, photo support if built-in and in the settings, you can do things like specify your favorite photo upload site. There’s also a bookmark feature that let’s you tag tweets to check out later. It’s great if you’re skimming a serious dog pile fresh post. Best of all for me, just click on the asterisk and you can retweet a post. Twitterrific is free. The $3.99 Twitterrific Premium is the same minus the fairly subtle ads.
Tweetie cost $2.99 and my fellow app judger Mauricio swears by it. It’s obviously not the utilitarian user interface, actually, it’s almost entirely about the utilitarian user interface. Tweetie is about fast access to your feeds, period. Okay, a quick click and you can run a location via search, go to another user, examine trends. It’s quick. It’s clean. It’s simple and that’s my main complaint about Tweetie. For $3.00, I want more than speed in the column of tweets.
I was all kinds of stoke when Twitdeck for iPhone came out. It’s free and it’s also my favorite desktop tool for Twitter. I run it on everything from XP to OS X to Windows 7 and just like the desktop, you get a big, wider scrollable row of columns for your tweets direct messages, searches, trends. You can create groups and yes, retweet. You’ll either love scrolling the dashboard back and forth or it will drive you completely nuts and you’ll want to uninstall the application. For anybody that had issues with the app when it was released. I’ve had no stability problems with version 1.0.1.
One last client before we go, Birdfeed. It’s brand spanking and it will cost $4.99. It claims to do something I’ve never seen in the other iPhone Twitter client do, local cashing. We thought that meant if you were offline or in airplane mode, you could actually answer and work on your tweets even if you’re in the subway, on the plane or sitting in the half of the Revision3 office where AT&T doesn’t reach. Well, at least you can read them which seems to be a lot like other applications we’ve used. The permanent time stamp is nice when you’re dealing with a backlog of tweets.
I am not a huge fan of the SMS style arrangement of conversation and frankly like Tweetie, I’d like to see some kind of free trial.
So, download or don’t download? Twitterrific 2.0, clean, simple interface with tons of easy to access options, solid performance and a free version with painless advertising. Download.
Tweetie, if your obsessed with speed and simplicity, Tweetie might be worth $3.00 but I say, it’s kind of stripped down. Try the free clients first. Don’t download.
Tweetdeck, if you leave in the desktop version of this app, you should definitely try it out on your iPhone. If you don’t like the columns, at least you didn’t waste any cash. Download.
Birdfeed cost $4.99. That is expensive for a Twitter client. Like Tweetie, there is no free trial. We thought the cashing was going to allow us to actually send tweets when we were out of Wi-Fi or cellphone rings but it doesn’t work that way. And the SMS style interface, I’m not a big fan. Frankly, I am calling don’t download.
Is there an iPhone, Android or Blackberry application you think we should be looking at? Email the name of it to us in a link if you got it.
