Birdfeed has been out for a bit and we waited for version 1.2 to do a review and let them work the kinks out. Well, they not only worked out some kinks but added geolocation and Flickr support.
While this app is $2.99 in the AppStore, it packs some features and also is supported by Boxcar that we highlighted earlier.
- Direct messages – they flow and appear like conversations.
- Local caching – get stuck with no signal from AT&T? Birdfeed maintains a small cache locally to catch you up when you get back online.
- Unread counts in the right places
- A timestamp indicator to show where you left off reading tweets. All we can say is whew! About time!
- Multiple account support
- your choice of photo service
- Save posted links for later with Instapaper
- see the site for more..
This is a great iPhone app and was fun to play with. I would read the site FAQ for a ton of other tricks and how-to steps for such things as trends.
