Tweetie 2 Coming Soon!

Coming Soon: App Store       Price: $2.99  

Tweetieatebits has announced lots of info about the soon to be released Tweetie 2. This will be a free upgrade for the Mac version but for the iPhone, you will need to buy it as a seprate app at $2.99. The original Tweetie is really nice but I’m kinda torn on the idea of making the app cost $2.99 again. As much as I use it, and as many upgrades that there are, I personally think it’s worth it. I have multiple Twitter accounts (in the double digits) and love all the current features. For light to normal users, I could see people being upset for having to pay all over again for the app. Wait until you see these screenshots and list of updates and then you might be willing to pay :) Also note, the developer has “dropped everything and devoted every working minute since to Tweetie.”

qTweeter Released in App Store as qStatus

Available In: App Store       Price: $0.99  

qStatus Many of you are probably familiar with qTweeter, a very unique twitter and facebook client. We have been doing reviews of qTweeter for quite a while now. Well, it seems that the app has now been released in the App Store under the title qStatus… and still contains many of the same features.

I received an email from the developers that saying that jailbroke version of qTweeter will need some updating in order to function with the 3.1 firmware… which may take some time. However, qStatus it is now available in the App Store. Obviously, you can not slide from the statusbar to launch qStatus but, the app does still contain the features listed below (which some of the features are actually pretty cool… I’ve always liked this application).

Friday Night Movie Night: IM+ 3.4 Will Add Speech Recognition

YouTubeThis video is a preview of the upcoming update to IM+. This application is $9.99 so I haven’t broken down and purchased it yet. But, as you can see in this video, the app is pretty sweet. One thing I noticed in the video is the app is sending your voice up to a server to transcribe it, like the Google App and Shazam do. The conversion doesn’t happen right on the iPhone. Either way, pretty sweet when you’re driving!

First Impressions: TweetDeck for the iPhone [Twitter]

Available In: App Store       Price: Free  

TweetDeckTweetDeck was released tonight so I thought I’d give it a try. First of all, it’s free. That’s nice. Second, I have to admit, I’m a Tweetie fanboy. I prefer it over TweetDeck on the desktop so beware. Really, the thing I think is the problem is it has too many features. I know, seems impossible. There are some great features though. Like nice little pop ups when you get new tweets. It’s kinda set up like safari with multiple pages that can be zoomed in and out and flicked through. I really like the pop up bubble in the bottom left with recent tweet counts. I’m going to try and use it tomorrow along with the crazy day of the iPhone firmware 3.0 release! [Read more…]
