Tweetie 2 finally available in the App Store

Tweetie 2 logo Tweetie 2, Loren Brichter’s new baby, is finally available for download in the iPhone App Store. About two weeks ago the release of this new Twitter client for the iPhone was announced. The previous Tweetie has been rewarded the Apple Desing Award, which made me even more curious about version 2. My close followers know that I am a real Tweetie fan. After Twitterrific it was my 2nd Twitter client on my iPhone. When Tweetdeck for iPhone arrived I installed that one as well. After the release of Tweetie 2 I will compare them once again and see who will be my winner, but that will take me some days more. Tweetie 2 is supposed to be even better than its predecessor. It’s rewritten from the ground up with a fast and powerful new core. I am especially curious about the following features:
  • It seamlessly handles multiple Twitter accounts
  • Tweetie 2 restores your entire UI if you quit or get a phone call
  • New offline mode. Read, tweet, favorite, follow, save to Instapaper and more even when you don’t have a connection. Your actions will be synced as soon as you go back online
  • Full landscape support
  • Post photos and videos, even configure your own custom image host
  • Vastly improved compose screen with recent hashtags, @people picker, URL shortening and more
  • Compose screen multiple-attachments manager
  • Drafts manager ensures you never lose a tweet
  • Follow, unfollow, block and unblock from multiple accounts simultaneously
  • Threaded Direct Messages and improved conversation navigation
  • Rich integration with Follow Cost, Tweet Blocker, Favstar.fm and more
  • Edit your own Twitter profile
  • Specify custom API roots on a per-account basis
  • Translate tweets
  • Preview short URLs
  • Safari bookmarklet support for easily sharing links
  • In-app rich text email composition
According to their website this is just the beginning. Tweetie 2 is already built to take advantage of great new features coming from Twitter, so expect updates turning them on soon! In some days I will share my own experiences. [Update: As promissed I did: Will Tweetie win the Twitter client battle?]
The Twitter client that redefined Twitter clients is back, and it’s even better. Rewritten from the ground up with a fast and powerful new core, Tweetie 2 offers the most polished mobile Twitter experience around.
