User Interface

The first thing you will notice about Tweetie is that it can handle multiple Twitter accounts so if you have more than one account this app would be perfect for you.

The UI is simply amazing, it feels just like a native iPhone app. Switching from one account to another is the same way as you switch one email account to another. Current version of Tweetie offers two themes Simple and Chat Bubbles (iChat bubbles interface).

Slide a Tweet to the right or left (same as iPhone unlock gesture) and you get three options to either reply, mark as favourite or checkout user profile.

Reply, Post & User Profile

Once you tap on a particular tweet, Tweetie shows the details of the tweet and here you can @reply (it adds @username for you and can even save drafts) , mark as favourite , Repost Tweet, view links with an inline web browser, Post Link to Tweet or read the complete profile of the person who sent you the Tweet. It provides various options on the user profile to decide whether you want to follow that user or not. You can easily view recent activity by selecting Recent Tweets, perform a @username Search, check followers and who the user is following.

It offers some great features for composing a Tweet. Tweetie can upload pictures to TwitPic, update location (Add Map Link using Google Maps, shorten the URL and inserts in the Tweet) and supports automatic Post link shrinking too.

Trends & Save Search

Tweetie also keeps you updated with an option to view the latest Trends (Tap on a trend to view related tweets), perform custom searches, Save your search and view public timeline.


Tweetie offers some interesting customization options ranging from Instapper Integration, Image Compression level, Landscape keyboard, Font size and Limit initial load to either 20, 50 0r 100.


On one hand Tweetie statifies all the needs of a twitter addict while on the other it can tranform a newbie into a Pro user. With the latest update Tweetie is more fun to use than it ever was!

  2. just downloaded this app (on the recommendation of this very review)… definitely digging it so far. I was using TwitterFon previously, which was good — especially for being free, but this is a much better app.

    I love the trends and nearby features!

  3. Row, I’ve got to have this app! Great update to the review!

  6. Hey, I’m in one of the pictures! :]

    Submitting promo req for @BMahl who isn’t on and missed this event!

    As I already stated in the screenshot, Tweetie already won my heart. I finally removed TwitterFon and Twitterific from my phone. For the price you pay, this app is a steal. The devs listen to comments and add features based off these reviews and user submissions. Looking forward for further additions!

  7. I meant “App” not “Game” lol

  8. NONE of the free twitter apps actually work good. They are just plain annoying! I would really love this game, it’s just I ran out of money on iTunes and I’m grounded so I can’t get anymore 😥
    Hahaha I really need this!!!

  9. It looks like a great app…I like the look of the app and how you can have multiple accounts

  10. Awesome. Thanks atebits and Row for the opportunity. It was a great surprise after waking up and checking my emails.

  14. I would love to have Tweetie. Been using Twitterfon for so long, but now I’m using two Twitter accounts and it’s so painful to input the account details everytime I’m going to use one.

  15. Yay! It’s FreeiPhoneApps. Nice review :).

  16. I want this because it looks like it may be the best twitter app out there.

  17. Have heard it’s the best. Great review!

  18. i love tweetie because it is much more simpler and better than any other twitter apps! and besides, i love the extra features they have, such as the instapaper. it’s really great!!

  19. I’d love to try it out, right now I use Twittelator. I admit, it’s mostly because I think the chat bubbles are cute.

  20. I want it. I love the looks of this app.

  21. this is a really great review! makes me really want to try the app. too bad i’m still too young to get a creditcard or paypal. ):
