Twitter Applications for your iPhone (best first):


Tweetie is my favorite Twitter client for the iPhone. It’s what I use every day. Great design, tons of features, decent price.

Price: $2.99

Pros: Tons of features, customizable, perfect design

Cons: When you swipe a tweet for quick menu, the app makes an obnoxios sound, this can be turned off in settings. The default for retweeting uses (via @username), this can be changed to RT.
