Osfoora HD for Twitter is a new iPad Twitter app. It’s also one of those apps that provokes a ‘love at first sight’ type reaction for me. Its App Store page touts it as having a gorgeous UI – and it absolutely does.
I’ve been underwhelmed by iPad Twitter clients thus far. Twitterrific had been my favorite amongst a not very inspiring bunch – but they’ve all taken a back seat now to Osfoora HD.
Admittedly, I’ve only spent a short while with the app (just installed it last night) – but unless it develops some severe bugs it’s going to take some doing to replace it as my go-to Twitter app for the iPad.
I’ll try to do a review on it when I’ve spent more time using it, but it looks to have most or all of the features I want from a Twitter client (though I may not be as demanding as some in this area, and it certainly has a beautiful interface to work with.

I’m not usually a fan of dark themes, but I love this one. Here’s a few more screencaps:
