twitterfon twitter iphone app Looking for a free iPhone Twitter app that is awesome? Allow me to rave for a moment about Echofon (previously Twitterfon), it’s without a doubt the best free iPhone Twitter app I have found and it has become an integral part of my day. I know there are various paid solutions out there which are pretty cool too, but since Twitter is free, I’m looking for a free solution for the iPhone, and Echofon does exactly the job I need it to do and quite well. You can easily tweet out, follow your friends, and track @messages going back and forth, and so much more. If there is a better free iPhone Twitter app out there, I want to know about it!

    I have both apps on my iPod touch and I think that the original twitter app is better, and I have had echofon since the first day I got my iPod. Sure, echofon’s prettier… But the original twitter had more things available! Like, your screen can flip on the original, while on the echofon it cannot. It’s also a lot simpler. Plus, with echofon, it doesn’t always load my profile correctly. While, on the original twitter, you can change your profile pic, bio, website, and more! I believe it is much better and easier to get used to. If you’re just now deciding the app between echofon for twitter and the original–Get the original. It’s much easier, faster, and uploads things without as much complication. You just have to get used to it. But, as soon as you do, you’ll see the huge different between echofon for twitter and the original.

    Nice article!

    I think the Twitter client landscape has really changed in 2010. New approaches and design strategies have yielded some remarkable new Twitter clients.

    TvvitterBug 1.3 is currently in the approval process for release on the App Store this week. This release brings together the culmination of all the features, capabilities, and functionality most sought after in an iPhone/iPod Twitter App, including:

    1. All of the power you want, without the complexity you don’t.
    2. Five (TvvitterBug exclusive) user-customizable Tweet Views.
    3. Up to Five user accounts easily accessible from any view.
    4. Persistent Tweets between launchings so you can view your tweets anytime.
    5. Double-Tap Instant Update to easily and quickly refresh your tweet views on demand.
    6. Built-in Photo capabilities to add photos directly to your tweets.
    7. Built-in Translation support using any of the state-of-the-art web translation engines you choose, such as Google Translate, Yahoo Babelfish, or Promt Translator.
    8. Built-in Web Access to view tweet embedded pictures and other URLs.
    9. Editable User Profile, including setting a new Avatar picture.
    10. Support for both “Fixed” and “Editable” Retweets – your choice.
    11. Landscape support for both Views and Keyboard.
    12. Automatic Language detection and display – great when you’re surfing!
    13. The same ease-of-use and lightning fast operation as the original version.

    I think your readers would be interested in learning more about TvvitterBug from your review.

    Hi. I guess DistortedLoop is quite right. Why is Echofon the best? UI? Speed? Ads? .. If you’re talking about UI, Twitterrific is way, way better then Echofon. And it’s also free.

  7. DistortedLoop says:

    It would be interesting to hear why you think it’s the best, other than that it’s just free. UI is best? Speed is best? What differentiates it from all the other freebies out there?
