Tweetie iPhone App

February 21, 2010

Tweetie is a really helpful Twitter app for the iPhone and iPod Touch. This app has all the features that you come to expect out of a Twitter client and does it with such a clean interface. It is a truly brilliant App that really plays to the iPhone’s strengths – a must have have for a follower of Twitter.

When you start up the app you’ll need to sign in with one of your Twitter accounts. This app allows for you to register with multiple, so keep that in mind when you’re picking out which Twitter app you’re going to use. After you log in, there are four main buttons and a more button for you to delve through. Those buttons are Tweets, Replies, Messages, and Favorites.
