When we heard reports of Twitter showing up on the App Store, we had observed that the icon of the iPhone app was similar to Tweetie’s icon. However, the iPhone app now available in the App Store has a different icon.
As we had speculated yesterday, Twitter is not a
. So iPad users might have to wait longer for the iPad app and use the iPhone app.
Biz Stone, co-founder of Twitter had this to say about Twitter’s iPhone app:
“Something worth noting is that you don't need a Twitter account to enjoy this application. Browsing trends, reading Top Tweets, finding popular users, and checking out public tweets geographically nearby are all possible immediately upon download. Discovery and consumption of interesting, relevant information is a central focus. However, quick and easy signup exists within the application so new users won't need to visit our web site to create an account. Oh, and 日本語版Twitter for iPhone を公開してます…With more languages on the way!”
Tweetie is now Twitter! We didn't just do a name change, we've added a bunch of new stuff.
Search has been reorganized, now you can search all tweets and find users in the same spot, view Top Tweets and Browse Suggested users.
Search results now include Top Tweets, try it with Trends…winner combo!
You can now use Twitter without an account! Search, Browse uses, view trends and top tweets.
Sign-up is now available within the application as well, complete with Suggested user list.
More tab has been reorganized to accomplish all this. Users with one account can add a second account under the Accounts and Settings button here.
Actions we've found people use most, like Retweet have been moved to the main actions bar.
Minor tweaks were made to tweet rendering so they match tweets.
. As always, please give us your feedback in the comments.
Thanks mes and Sean for the tip!
