Twittelator Neue is one of the latest Twitter clients for the iPhone and iPod Touch to hit the App Store. It’s absolutely a beautiful Twitter client to look at, but lacks many features to make switch from what we’re currently using.
What makes this mobile Twitter app really stand out is it’s inline image and website embeds. When someone tweets a picture, a cropped preview of the image will appear just beneath the tweet. This cropped image theme also extends to profiles. It’s a very nice visual effect. When selecting a tweet that has a link attached, Twitterlator Neue will load the link just beneath the tweet, which we find to be very convenient.
Twitterlator Neue is full of nice animations, gestures, and menu overlays when creating a new tweet or deleting old messages. However, it doesn’t automatically refresh Mentions or doesn’t seem to really delete Direct Messages though it gives you the option to. You also cannot add anyone to a Twitter list from their profile. You have to go into your Twitter list and select “edit” to access the “add user to list” option. We prefer to add on the fly. At the time of writing this post, there was no integration with iOS 5 either.
While Twittelator Neue is beautiful and brings great new features to the table , we’ll be waiting for another update or two before we switch this app. Though if you don’t mind it’s currently available for $1.99.
