New Official Twitter App for iPhone Released, No iPad Version Yet

iPhone Twitter app

As many of you probably already know, the brand new Tweetie-based, official Twitter app for the iPhone was released this morning. We knew this was coming when Twitter bought Tweetie, and now the new app is here. 

The app is now free, which is great, contains all the Tweetie goodness many of us have come to know and love, and some new features that look promising as well – a dedicated Retweet button just as one quick example.

Unfortunately, there is no full-on iPad version as yet, though the app is listed as ‘compatible’.  So it will run on the iPad in the same way nearly all iPhone apps will – at iPhone size or in the rather lame 2X scaled-up mode.

Here’s hoping the full iPad version is coming soon. In the meantime, you can find a few more notes about the new iPhone app over at our sister site.

  1. I was disappointed to see that it wasn't universal after waiting for the update. Particularly since (I believe I read) that Tweetie worked great with a jailbroken iPad and the utility to force apps into full-screen.

    My iPhone remains my main Tweet spot, with a wifi iPad, so I suppose I am not missing too much at the moment.
