Osfoora HD – Gorgeous iPad Twitter App, an Instant Favorite

Osfoora HD iPad Twitter app

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.  Here’s its feature list via its App Store page:

★ Multiple account support with easy management.
★ Full landscape support (Configurable).
★ Saves App position on termination (Main Views, scroll position, and Compose View)
★ Great Follow Friday Generator

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

  1. I have to say, I'm rather impressed with it. And I use it on my iPhone, too!

    I did however, send an email to the developer (waiting for a response) stating that when one views an image that someone has tweeted, if one chooses to NOT reply to said image, one should be able to click anywhere on the screen to thus close said image…

    Does that make sense?

  2. It's already my favorite iPad Twitter client…there's a few bugs here and there but the devs are very responsive and quick to implement updates. I'd like an option for s lighter theme but that's a minor complaint
