I haven’t been on Twitter as long as some people. In fact, I joined Twitter only when Apple integrated it into iOS 5. A little reluctantly (and with more than a hint of trepidation), I signed up. Since then, Twitter has been an on-again/off-again relationship. When it’s good, it’s great, and when it’s bad, Twitter gets neglected. But I do really like Twitter and I love the apps that come along with it.
I’ve been trying to find the best way to read through my old tweets and conversations with friends and colleagues for a while now. Maybe I’d find a joke I made that I thought was hilarious (or not funny at all, on the other hand). Maybe I could find that brief conversation about iTunes I had with Rian Johnson, the writer/director of Looper. Mostly, I wanted a great way to be nostalgic. I tried a few different apps, but finally found what I wanted in Tweet Library.
The amount of intriguing iOS Twitter apps has risen dramatically in the past year. There have been many popular development teams which have created some seriously killer user interfaces, not to mention beautifully artistic designs. The winners of this race to the App Store have been some of the most passionate apps written by very intelligent people.
Scopy is a newer release which focuses on the photo media found on Twitter. You’ll be able to view and share photos with all your followers while also refreshing your Twitter timeline with new content. The icon design and user interface are beautiful to experience and compliment the photographs wonderfully. After the break, I’ll go over how to use Scopy properly, and what you can do after connecting with your Twitter Account.
If you haven’t hopped on the Twitter bandwagon yet, then you’re late to the game. It’s the best way to get easily consumable bits of information fed to you on a regular basis, as well as find out what weird things celebrities do during their off time. But with all that data out there, it can get a bit overwhelming at times. When hearing your Tweetdeck chirp every 30 seconds on your Mac gets irritating or having to scroll through five pages of Twitter for iPhone with your thumb gets tedious, maybe there should be a different option. Something simple.
That’s what Trickle is all about. Get your tweets one at a time, in a nicely consumable bite. It’s like the perfect snack of information. But is it worth the money? Let’s find out after the jump.
