    Has this update already been submitted to Apple for approval or are they still working on it?

    This is my second favorite Twitter app for the iPhone. Overall, I'd give the nod to SimplyTweet, but I am looking forward to the next update to make the fonts bigger.

    I think the way Twitterific Premium handles the friends and followers list is probably the best I've seen in a Twitter client. It's quick and easy to get to. Otherwise, Birdbrain is a good option.

    This is now the best all around Twitter app. Second I'd rate Birdfeed (better aesthetically and faster) then Tweetie. Tweetie hasn't seen a significant update in months and I hope Loren has something up his sleeve because Tweetie is starting to look dated by comparison.

    Agreed, its (IMO of course) #1 unless Tweetie can put out a wonder of an update. It'll be interesting if it looks like the desktop client like he hinted...

    But ya, this new update puts it over the line for #1 for me as well. Tweetie has been back burned till its updated :eek:

    Tweetie does need an update. It's been ages, but I hear 2.0 is going to be pretty nice. Either way, I seem to come back to using Tweetie even after trying SimplyTweet and TweetDeck.

    I'll have to check this out. I'm currently using Tweetie which I like, but Twitterific looks good too.

    Was very tempted due to the big improvement over Tweetie of many of the other twitter clients. I looked at Twitterific and SimplyTweet last night and bought SimplyTweet - not much in it I don't think, both seem very good and have gotten some great regular updates.

    Tweetie will be getting a MASSIVE update in a few weeks as Atebits releases 2.0. It's based on the desktop version so expect it to be way slicker than it currently is.

    Love the Tweetie desktop app... looking forward to what they have to offer in the next iPhone app update! In the mean time, I absolutely satisfied with what Twitteriffic is offering post-2.1 update.

    The Twitterrific Premium 2.1 update is "all kinds of awesome". :D

    I have the app, probably the free one. Does that mean this feature "* Added Javascript to fix links that use target="_blank" in built-in browser." is not for people who didn't pay? I am baffled why twitterific doesn't allow landscape typing so I was wondering if that's the difference between free and paid.

    I thought the only difference is that the paid version has no ads.

    Who knows. An app this polished though should have landscape. Texting in portrait is so 2.0. :D

    seriously, i was hoping for landscape, not like i have to have it but sometimes it makes things easier. usually when i got a lot to say and rapid replies. :)

    Landscape is awful in any app.

    This update puts Tweetie to shame. I don't really expect much from Tweetie 2.0 as Tweetie on the Mac is a bit lacking.
