We generally stick to Tweetbot for all of our tweeting needs on iPhone, but a flashy newcomer has entered the arena.It’s called Twittelator Neue. It’s a fresh take on the user interface of conventional Twitter apps because it focuses on images.
Featuring unique new features like integrated photo browsing, a slick colour palette, and multiple columns (a la Tweetdeck), we’ve really enjoyed using this app.
We might even go so far to say that Twittelator Neue is the best new Twitter app for iPhone.
Twittelator Neue is $2.99 in the App Store. Here’s how it works.
One of the main draws of the app is its meticulous styling, font size, and colour palette. We didn't feel inclined to change any settings.
As you scroll down, pictures from Twitter, Instagram, and other photo sharing sites show up inside your feed.
When you tap a tweet, you'll see any websites or images attached to that tweet. Swipe up to view the whole webpage.
If you head back to your profile page, you can access every picture you've ever uploaded to Twitter by tapping the picture here.
This brings up all the pictures you've recently uploaded to Twitter. This is something no other app can do.
The tweet composer screen looks great, and it's easy to add a picture, your location, or the song that's currently playing on your iPhone.
While you're writing a tweet, you can tap the top bar to tweet from other accounts simultaneously, and even to your Facebook account. Useful feature.
If you're replying to a tweet, tap the keyboard symbol to pop down the keyboard and view the tweet you're replying to.
Twittelator Neue looks terrific and has tons of features, but at the end of the day, the app is not organised very logically.
We got used to the way the app is organised relatively quickly, but it would certainly be a difficult app to get used to for novices.
And also, push notifications for mentions and direct messages is going to cost you money on a yearly basis. Not cool.
In the end, Twittelator Neue is the second best Twitter app for iPhone, right behind Tweetbot. Twitter is about getting data fast, and Tweetbot is the fastest. Neue can make it difficult to get things done quickly.
This doesn't change the fact that it's the best new Twitter app on the market, and has several useful features other apps will surely copy.
The photo viewer (which shows all of a user's pictures) is downright brilliant.
