Five free iOS Twitter clients. Which one do I get?

Twitter

Echofon

Para no andarme con rodeos, es el que utilizo actualmente . El diseño no es especialmente llamativo, pero es funcional y, sobre todo, más compacto que el cliente oficial, por lo que se pueden ver más tweets en pantalla de una sola vez; toda una ventaja en un teléfono móvil.

Es rápida, se maneja de forma intuitiva y la publicidad de la versión gratuita no es nada intrusiva. Como inconveniente, no me gusta que para interactuar con un tuit, ya sea para responder, marcar como favorito o lo que sea, hace falta seleccionarlo y entrar en una pantalla aparte, y no simplemente hacer un gesto deslizando el dedo para activar estas opciones.

Twitter clients are many, many. The thing is that it is not something that can be changed day by day, day by day, because if not you will end up with quadrupled notifications, and in the end it is a nuisance. So, since we have a choice, let’s see which Twitter client we’re left with .

Official Twitter client

The official Twitter application for iPhone is certainly a good choice for anyone. Although it’s neither the fastest nor the most aesthetically pleasing, it offers exclusive features such as “connect”, where we can keep up to date with mentions, RT, new followers… and also “discover”, with a selection of the most relevant things from our timeline.

It’s true that other functions are not as well implemented in the interface , that sometimes you have to go round and round until you get something, or that not everything is so intuitive, for example, to enter a user’s profile, you have to click on their image and not their name.

Twheel

Con esta última y peculiar aplicación cerramos el quintento de clientes gratuitos de Twitter para iOS . Hay más, pero no destacan por nada en particular, y la publicidad a menudo resulta molesta.

Como añadido, a pesar de que nos hemos centrado en las versiones para iPhone, los cinco tienen versiones optimizadas para el iPad , así podemos tener el mismo cliente en los dos dispositivos.

Twheel is not a regular Twitter client . When everyone shows our timeline as a linear succession of tweets, this application does so in the form of an infinite circle. As we slide our finger over the petals of a kind of daisy, the corresponding tweets are highlighted, which we can read at dizzying speed.

The idea is very good, and although it has a considerable learning curve — the size of the “wheel” is small and you have to handle it with precision — you get to like it after a while. However, in the aesthetic section, although it’s not completely strident, it needs considerable polishing.
