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.”

Tweetie Update – Fixes Twitpocalypse Bugs

Available In: App Store       Price: $2.99  

Tweetie I don’t know about you guys but, I was totally stoked to see an update to Tweetie…in which Apple finally approved, two and half weeks after it was submitted (no surprise there!). Tweetie is my favorite Twitter application and it has been driving me crazy that the search has been broken since the dreaded Twitpocalypse. It seems that they have worked out all the Twitpocalypse bugs and Tweetie is back to functioning normally! YAY! The developer also says that there is a “news on the next “big” update coming soon.”

TweetieFor me, this is the best Twitter client for the iPhone. I know people really like others, like Twitterrrific, but I still vote for Tweetie. You can easily set up and access mulitiple Twitter account. There are three different themes to the layout and design of the app, which is huge for me because I like the dark theme. You can easily access your main stream, @replies, direct messages and favorites from the main screen. The more tab, of course, has even more features like access to your own profile, go to user, nearby, trends, search and you can save your searches. You can post pictures or your location in tweets. Under a users profile you can reply, direct message, follow, stop following, see recent tweets, see recent replies to that user, see who they are following and who’s following them, and block or unblock. The best feature of all for me is the ability to customize the app like changing the theme, and the way your retweets look. [Read more…]
