There are a vast number of Twitter Apps available for the iPhone. Some are free, and others are paid. We aren't fans of paying for Twitter Apps, because there are plenty of great free ones already availalbe and they are all very capable pieces of software.
Let's take a look at some of our favorites:
TweetDeck is nice because it divides everyting into columns sucha as your friends timeline, @ tweets meant for you and direct messages. Those columns also make it one of our favorite apps for managing multiple Twitter accounts. We just really enjoy the way it's set up.
Echofon is a fairly basic Twitter app with all the functions you need. This is a great App to go for if you like a simple interface and if Tweet Deck seems a bit busy for your tastes.
Twitter is also an excellent way to keep up with the news. Ubercurrent is nice in the sense that it seemingly sets up Twitter for you. You can log in, and it offers a variety of lists so that you can quickly look around at what is happening without having to look at your own friends timeline. It's nothing you cant do without lists, but it's nice to have all those Tweets available with a quick touch. Other than that, it works like a standard Twitter App.
Twitterriffic is another great Twitter App that's available for the low price of free, and is very easy to use. It's your regular universal Twitter client for iPhone and iPad, worth checking out if you want a clean interface.
Believe it or not, the official App is our least favorite of the bunch. Unlike many of the other Apps, this one does not have an option for uploading photos. When we are carrying our mobile phones around, we often want to be able to snap a quick picture and upload it to the internet, right? This doesn't allow that. Really, there isn't much reason to appreciate this App other than it's easy to use and it's the official Twitter App. Other than that, if you have any of the above, you may want to give it a pass. Hey, at least it's free, right?
It's a World of Apps
There are more Apps than any one user knows what to do with. Even here at iSmashPhone, we can only look at so many Apps at any given time. With that, we ask you our usual question, readers: What is your favorite Twitter client for iPhone?
