TweetDeck teases overhauled iOS app

TweetDeck to soon release new iOS app

TweetDeck said on Monday it's finishing work on a reworked app for the iPhone and iPad. Many of the same features from the popular Android version of the app have been applied here. Users will have a unique ability to customize columns, with multiple feeds in one column.

It also promises a more minimalist interface optimized for Retina Display-equipped devices like the iPhone 4 and fourth-generation iPod touch. The current free app lets users post Twitter notes as well as view and update Facebook, including from multiple Twitter accounts.

The app is currently undergoing its final round of testing, and TweetDeck said it will submit the new version to the App Store within the next few weeks.

    I've been hearing about this for a while. I'm definitely looking forward to trying the new app. I really wish they would release an update to ChromeDeck that allows you to turn off real-time stream.

    Yes, but

    Tweetdeck for iPhone is already (for me, anyway) the best Twitter/FB combo client available, and I look forward to the improvements they'll make for the iPad (where I prefer Hootsuite).

    Where they really need to fix things up, however, is on the Mac client -- a bad Adobe Air port job that shows up how inadequate it is to simply bring an iPhone app to a desktop. Hopefully a genuine NATIVE Mac client is next on their agenda.

    I find it so annoying to work with the Air version that I dumped it altogether. I used Fluid to make a HootSuite "app" instead, which has worked out brilliantly (hint hint HootSuite!).
