The promise of Tabloids, a $2.99 app, is that it turns your giant Twitter stream into something more elegant, resembling a newspaper or magazine.
Why do people think we want to take new technology and cram it into old packaging?
One of the best features of Twitter is the constant, chronological stream of information. It couldn’t be easier to sort through: Open Twitter, then scroll. Boom, presto, bango, done!
But, whatever, we decided to take a chance on Tabloids. It looked different. Since Twitter needs all the help it can get with its product, and since we’re not head over heels in love with any iPad Twitter apps, we thought we’d see if it was any good. Maybe there’s something for Twitter or other app makers to learn from it.
We should have trusted our guts.
