Ever since the iPhone 2.0 firmware was released, I have been searching for a native Twitter app that will give me most, if not all, of the features included with the great web based Twitter app, Hahlo (www.hahlo.com). The main advantages of a native app is that you don't have to fire up Mobile Safari and your account information can be saved in settings.
Well, I have found the native iPhone Twitter app that I have wanted for so long. It is Twittelator Pro. You can get all the details on this great little app at http://www.stone.com/Twittelator/. You can check out the app in the iTunes App Store at http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=288963578&mt=8.
While there are other Twitter apps for the iPhone, I find that none are as feature rich as Twittelator Pro. The features that I dig the most include:
- Reading past replies.
- Integrated search.twitter.com.
- ViewNearby tweets (using iPhone's GPS).
- Mark favorite tweets (I use this to bookmark tweets for followup at a later time).
- Bookmarks for saving favorite twitter profiles.
- Easily view top keywords used on Twitter.
- Good themes (I like Raven the best).
- View TwitPic image thumbnails right in your recent tweet lists.
- Copy/Paste tweets.
You get the idea. Twittelator Pro is awesome for the Twitter user who wants many features at his/her disposal. The application is $4.99. I can tell you that it is worth every penny.
