If we could review our apps in the fewest words possible, this would be the review for Tweetie: “Greatest Twitter app on the iPhone, ever.” But we at Project Infinitum like to give detailed reviews. Let’s talk about speed in this app. Tweetie is very fast, and has never crashed for me. Everything loads quickly and there is not a long wait time. Tweetie is like a native app on the iPhone and when you first launch it, you feel that you know exactly how to run it. What makes this app unique and stand out compared to the other apps is the fact that there is three themes: Bubble, Simple, and Dark. Personally, I use the bubble theme.

If you use Twitter as much as me, you would know that an app would have to have every feature available on it as if you were on a computer. Tweetie does a great job in covering that. Tweetie comes with TwitPic integration and gives you the option to upload a photo from your phone or take one were ever you are at. The app also displays popular threads and gives you the option to reply, favorite, or retweet in a click of a button; to do this all you have to do is swipe the tweet and options come up. Tweetie also allows you to change the sound of the swipes, to a farting sound. It’s funny, but if you’re in a room with a bunch of sophisticated people, it would be very awkward. The app also comes with the ability to load tweets from nearby.

The one thing that I found was difficult with Tweetie is to learn how to change themes and sounds. But thanks to a friend of mine, I learned that the options were under the settings app. While I was changing the settings, I learned that Tweetie gives you an option to have the app in landscape mode, I prefer it in the default mode, but what ever floats your boat.

To sum everything up: the app is $2.99 on the app store and I HIGHLY recommend it to any hardcore Twitterer or someone that just likes to tweet every so often.
