There are any number to twitter clients currently available for the iPhone. And it make sense. The iPhone is the ultimate mobile device. It’s always with you and it’s almost always connected. Since Twitter is about giving quick updates throughout the day what could be better that to be able to quickly and easily Tweet from your iPhone.
Twittelator Pro takes iPhone Tweeting to a new level.
First off, it looks great. As is the case with pretty much everything coming from Stone.com, it uses bold, bright colors. The various screens are well laid out so that even though the application has a tremendous number of functions it doesn’t feel overwhelming. You can chose from three different themes, including blue, tan and what looks like a soft pink. I prefer the Blue that comes as he default. The importance of this can’t be underestimated as you try to shoot off a quick Tweet in the middle of a busy day.
Looks only go so far, however and, fortunately, the app works as well as it looks. First off, I am finding Twittelator Pro to be exceptionally fast to load and change screens. Second, it includes a nice array of configurations. The options screen offers the ability to load Tweets at launch, load mapping at launch, use high res images for picture Tweeting, and auto-correct and capitalizing. There is also a function to turn the emergency button on and off. I don’t personally get using Twitter in emergencies and I’m not alone. My friend Wayne over on Gear Diary noted, "If you have a cell signal I suggest calling police instead of asking Twitter-land to save you."
Because it is so powerful I thought I would include the rundown of features that are available over on Stone.com. The list, however, is huge and with Comcast soon capping bandwidth I decides to give a quick summary. (Okay, not so much but it IS a long list if I don’t liberally edit it down.)
