Tweetie 2 update adds new Twitter features

iPhone developer atebits on Sunday signaled the formal launch of Tweetie 2.1 ($2.99, App Store). The update gives the client support multiple features that Twitter itself has added to its microblogging service, including the geolocation feature that now gives all Twitter users the option of marking each tweet with its position. It also acknowledges Twitter's new user lists and the native retweet format.

The approximately 1.1MB update is a free download for iPhone and iPod touch owners who already use Tweetie 2 and doesn't override existing retweet options or other features of the mobile app, which is known for its fine-grained control of mutliple Twitter accounts that includes syncing with the iPhone's contacts, mass follow/unfollow/block control and an offline mode.

    cool but ...

    Wish they would work on the aesthetics more than this feature. Bring back the bubbles, and give us an icon that doesn't look like a heavy metal band, or at least give us the choice of having the old icon back.

    A way of getting rid of the rampant twitter spam accounts without going through three clicks and a swipe would be nice also.

    Re: cool but

    Haven't you heard. Can't do bubbles. Looks too much like Apple's bubbles and will confuse people into thinking they're running an Apple app. Which, of course, is the whole point of UI continuity and guidelines and all that. But why quibble.
