Twitter for iPad available for download
The official Twitter client for iPad is now available to download, and it’s pretty impressive. Centered around consumption, it features panes that allow for easy viewing of photos, news stories, tweets, and even a built-in media player that allows you to watch videos directly in the app either within a floating window or fullscreen. It’s still sort of shocking to me that the screenshot above is a Twitter client, certainly doesn’t look like what you imagine when you think of Twitter does it?
Naturally the iPad client supports touch gestures and interestingly enough, they made the iPad Twitter client not require a login initially, meaning you can start consuming without signing up for anything.
This is a pretty interesting direction for Twitter to go, the iPad client is now more full featured than their website… what’s that tell you? You can download the iPad version directly from iTunes, it’s free.
I think it’s safe to say that this is the best Twitter client for iPad at this point. Perhaps not for its simplicity, since it’s a pretty complex client, but for raw consumption of media and link sharing in the Twitter world it’s pretty amazing. If you have an iPad, don’t miss it.
