First look at Twitepad for the iPad

Earlier last week, developer Infoxenter had sent word of their upcoming TwitePad app designed exclusively for the iPad. As a fully featured twitter client, TwitePad comes with all the functions you’d expect: lists, both types of retweets and more. Its two main selling features however, are the built-in web browser and support for multiple columns. Thanks to the larger screen size of the iPad, Twitepad users can now navigate between their columns by content (mentions, timeline, lists etc) AND easily open interesting links with the web browser.

And for those with multiple Twitter accounts, Twitpad allows you to use as many as your heart desires- meaning you can stay on top of all your personalities accounts without jumping from screen to screen. Infoxenter have even included support for Instapaper (read articles later) and implemented a database backend, meaning all your tweets and user data are stored locally for near instant retrieval.

For soon-to-be iPad owners who’re also Twitter users, Twitepad should definitely be on their radar come April 3rd. For the intro price of $0.99, Twitepad is looking more and more appealing by the minute. Be sure to check out the promo video, piccies and more after the gap!

A few weeks ago I did a review on the Twitter client, Twitterena, by Developer Andy Weekes. At the time, his client was one of, if not the best, all-around Twitter client feature wise. I reported then that he was working on releasing updates that would add quite a few premium features to an already amazing client (feel free to re-read my previous review for a re-fresher). Afterwards I found out that instead of just updating the existing client Andy realized that with the segmented market of Twitter users not everyone would need these enhanced features. The result has given birth to a new and even better client now known as Twitterena+ Pro.

Twitterena in Review – What are you doing today?

twitterena1One of the best things about the App Store in my opinion is the overwhelming presence of amateur developers. You no longer have to go to the big corporation to get quality applications. Twitterena is one of those apps. It seems like every week there’s a new twitter app being released. Most of them are either lacking in features you would expect to be standard, or have so many features that you never end up using them all.

Developed by Andrew Weekes, a young English fella and jack of all trades (he’s also a singer, pianist, teacher, designer, and more), Twitterena truly was designed with the users enjoyment in mind.
