Twinkle RC 4

Twinkle While testing MobileTwitter I posted a tweet that I was reviewing a new Twitter app for the iPhone and someone twittered back asking if it was Twinkle. So I thought I’d try it out too. Twinkle is very well designed and has some really sweet features. One is the Near Me feature. I can see tweets around me from ranges 1 to 252,000 miles. Of course that means that it will post your location too (this can be turned off). Another sweet feature is you can attach a photo to your tweet. It looks like only other Twinkle users can see the image. It would be sweet if it would post a link to the photo like iTwitxr. As expected, it comes with the standard twitter features of replying to tweets, sending private messages, viewing profiles, public timeline, etc.

Here’s the bad news… It’s only in private beta. I assume this means they are either waiting for SDK or there are some new features they are still working on. If the developer’s listening, here’s my wish list: photo attached is available to all of twitter via link, links in tweets are clickable into Safari, badge shows new tweets in springboard (only when iphone is unlocked, we don’t want battery drain), location distance resets to 50 miles after closing app, and totally not necessary but would be kewl… skins or themes.

Now I know like that sounds like complaints but it’s not really, just wishes, my dream of a perfect twitter app. If you have other ideas, post them in the comments and maybe they will show up in the final release? We can hope and dream right? So for the record, this is my #3 app next to Mail & Safari. I use it A LOT. Can’t wait until this is released so everyone can enjoy!
