Twitterrific 2.0 for iPhone Coming Very Soon & Looking Very, Very Good

Twitterific for iPhone

I ‘m a big fan of Twitter and an even bigger fan of iPhone Twitter apps.  I ‘ve just been watching a preview of a major new update to Twitterrific “ one of the first and best-know iPhone Twitter clients “ and I feel very excited about this major update. 

The video preview of Twitterrific 2.0 was just hugely impressive to me.  Here are some of the excellent new features that caught my eye:

  • Supports multiple accounts
  • 3 themes built in, including a lighter one
  • Add Personal Notes on individual users ‘ profiles
  • Mini mode “ doesn ‘t show avatars etc “ but fits the most tweets possible in a single view
  • Compress text “ shorten words down “ not just URLs, but regular words “ to squeeze more into a tweet
  • Easy to add multiple usernames to @ replies “ you see both the timeline and the post new tweet field at once

Twitterrific was one of the very first App Store Twitter apps I tried.  It has always been one of the best looking apps in this area, but I never found it an overall winner in its 1.x versions.  I guess I thought of it as being too much ‘form over function ‘.  This new update though looks like it is adding function out the wazoo, and keeping all the nice form.

My overall impression after watching the 9 minute video demo is that Twitterrific looks like it ‘s about to set the new standard for all iPhone Twitter apps to match up to.

Admittedly, it was just a demo I watched “ but if the updated performs anywhere near as well as the demo showed, it will be one heck of a contender amongst iPhone Twitter apps.

I just put Twitterrific back on my iPhone “ as I reall can ‘t wait to give its 2.0 version a go.

The update has already been submitted to Apple, and is expected out this coming week.

In the meantime, you can check out the demo video HERE “ and let us know what you think
