There has been a sudden overflow of Twitter apps for iPhone/iPod touch in the App Store. It is interesting to notice that in-spite of many great apps available users still like to evaluate new twitter apps.
twitterena is a very good looking twitter app with bright background and different colors. The user interface of this app is fairly simple. You can view your followers tweets, replies and messages. There is a refresh option on the top left and tweet option on the top right. Tap on a tweet to reply, send message, retweet, view users recent tweets or users twitter profile. Selecting your own tweet gives an option to view your own timeline and profile too
While composing a new tweet you can add more users to one tweet by selecting ‘my tweeps’, add your location using ‘locate me’ or upload a picture via twitpic.
This app shows replies and messages in “conversation’ view with iChat bubbles interface which is very attractive. It also supports in-line web browser to view links within the app and also gives an option to either open link with Safari or Email the link.
With Version 2.0 now you can add map link, search twitter, save search, view trends and get sound notification (not push!) when you receive/send new tweet, mention or message. In the settings you can edit these options
twitterena is a great app for those who wish to get started with twitter on their iPhone and want to avoid extra features.
