Got me a new favourite iPhone Twitter application in the shape of TweetList. The title gives the impression that it may be focused on the Twitter list scene, which I have never really bothered to investigate, but it is just like any other Twitter client in terms of look and feel and features. The only slight difference being that along the bottom of the screen, next to your main timeline button is a button for “lists” ahead of “mentions” and “messages”. I’ve got used to it already.
What I really like about it is that it is easy to access the important features, for example pressing down and holding a tweet brings up the “reply/retweet” option whilst double tapping a tweet brings up the “translate/favourite/copy’ menu. The display is clean, I can change the font size to make it more readable and tweets where people reply to me or my own tweets are highlighted in a discrete light blue colour and not the awful shades that other Twitter clients seem to think are nice. I’m really pleased with this one and have been using it ahead of Osfoora the past couple of weeks.
