##ICON_NAME## This is one of my most used apps among all apps on my iPhone, even including the stock apps. It probably ranks up there with text messaging for me. I used to really love Tweetie until the update to Tweetie 2 where some of my favorite features were removed. So I started to look around and then I found Twitterrific. There is a free version that is ad supported so check it out first to see if you like it before buying.

So there’s a lot I like about this app and a few things I don’t. I’ll start with the good. First, it’s beautiful. There’s a pretty good reason for this and it’s because it’s designers are the iconfactory. They are first, an icon design company and now develop iPhone apps. They’ve designed icons for Microsoft Vista and XP, Xbox, Ubuntu, Red Hat Linux, Macromedia, and even Walmart.

But, apps don’t need to just look good, they need to work well. Twitterrific has a ton of features:

• Manage multiple accounts, searches & trends
• Unified timeline displays replies, direct messages, favorites & more
• Filter timeline for different tweet types instantly
• Easily view conversation threads between users
• Customizable visual themes & layout styles
• Powerful tweet actions such as RT, URL shortening, email, text compression & others
• Wide range of advanced settings
• Much, much more!

The app flows really well through menus and it’s very intuitive. It really is my favorite twitter app right now but I do have some things I’d like to see change or added.

• When tweeting and wanting to @reply someone there needs to be an easy way quickly enter in someone’s username but just typing the @ and the first couple letters of the username. Right now you have to scroll through the list of people.

• Right now when you search for something and then want to reply you have to choose what twitter account you want to use. The searches should be accessed from withing each account, not the main menu. That way you can create custom searches for each account and you’re not limited to 3 choices of accounts when responding.
