Tweetie’s Not a Bird

Posted in Products, Reviews with tags , , , , , , , , , on February 12, 2009 by JD

tweetsI found it, the hands down best Twitter application for the iPhone (in my opionion anyway).

Tweetie does it all and more; I am still finding features that I didn’t know were there.  Honestly, I have not seen a Twitter app yet for the iPhone that does as much as this one; plus, it never crashes and runs as smooth as my baby’s butt. The only problem I’ve had was whiel trying to take a photo to add to my tweet. The camera froze for some reason; but honestly, I am not sure if that was my camera being weird or the app.

Some of my favorite features are (taken from the link above):

  • Ability to handle multiple twitter accounts (although I only have 1 now).
  • View your timeline, replies, direct messages and favorites.
  • Browse your friends and followers.
  • Follow and unfollow people via buttons.
  • Mark tweets as favorites.
  • Inline web browser (this rocks, no flicking back and forth between Safari and the app itself).
  • Post links with automatic link shrinking via bit.ly.
  • Upload pictures to twitpic.com.
  • Update your twitter location.
  • View twitter trends and perform custom searches.
  • Save your favorite searches.
  • Implements the full twitter API.
  • Go to User shortcut
  • Nearby search

If you Tweet and have an iPhone, the $2.99 you pay for this app is the best $2.99 you will ever spend. Pick it up soon and be amazed.

MySpace is still around??

According to this article I just ran across on TechCrunch, Facebook is on it’s way to surpassing MySpace in total unique visitors.

On it’s way??  I didn’t know people even used MySpace anymore. I guess there are a lot more horrible bands, want-to-be porn stars and 12 year old friend collectors out there than I thought there were.
