Trickle – Full Screen Twitter Slideshow

I’ve been looking for an app like this that works with both Twitter and Facebook but Trickle or works with Twitter. What I was looking for was a full screen app that did a slideshow of Twitter and Facebook status updates. It would be even sweeter if it supported something like Flickr too and would show full screen pics when twitpics or Facebook photos show up. Ok, so enough dreaming, all I could find was this app. It’s actually quite nice and simple with a few decent settings to customize things.

Starting things out simple, the tweet appears full screen with white, Helvetica font and the Twitter user ID at the bottom. You can have multiple accounts, show or hide extra buttons, slide to next tweet, adjust speed of tweets, pull down to refresh, add a search query and more. It works for both the iPhone and the iPad and it works landscape or portrait. Hopefully we can get some more feature but for now, it works well.

Trickle is NOT a full-featured Twitter client. Instead, Trickle is designed to do just one thing – display tweets. Tweets are displayed individually so they are easy to read. New Tweets will push in from the right as they arrive. Trickle handles all the work leaving you free to do other things.

Trickle works best in a dock. If you don’t have a dock, try propping your device against something on your desk. Trickle works just as well on it’s side and upside down so you will still be able to keep your device plugged in.
