    Hi new to tweeting,

    What's the best app?

    Don't know whether it's best getting a free app or pay one.

    Not bothered about prices, just want to know what people think is best.


    Thanks

    I guess developers have to make money somehow.

    The free version of Twitterfon includes adverts, don't know about the others...

    Tried TweetDeck, and iTwitter, both are pretty good and free (or free when first released for iTwitter) but I keep coming back to Tweetie. If you are on 3G S and like to do video, Twitterlator Pro is the only one that support video tweets at the moment.

    on the desktop TweetDeck all the way.

    Up until today I would have said Tweetie. However...

    Keep an eye on SimplyTweet. I'm beta testing 2.0 and it is very good indeed. All the options you need, with a nice UI and push notifactions !

    Your mother! She just won't. shut. up. !!!!
    Yeah, that's my lame-o comment for the day.

    I guess it really depends on what kind of twitter user you are. I'm not into it too much so I enjoy the nice interface of Twitterific(FREE). Although, it lacks features that serious twitter users might appreciate. Twittelator Pro is amazing for what they charge you. There are also a few push options, but I haven't tried those yet.

    I don't understand all the hype over TweetDeck though (the app version). That thing is so buggy on my phone! I just don't get it. When moving from column to column the interface just glitches out. This has happened with the initial release as well as the update. I can't really recommend that one.

    I have tried almost every single one out there, paid and free. I love Twitterific Premium. It's the only one I use these days.

    i did like twitterfon (free) the best until the last update... they changed their ads and they are UBER annoying now! they used to just sit up at the top.... but now they keep flashing, scrolling, appearing, disppearing... at the bottom... REALLY distracting (and like i said: annoying) BLEH!

    i'm anxiously awaiting the update to simply tweet.... i like the current version ok (except for the colors :p) but what i've been read about the update seems very promising!!!!

    I used to say Tweetie, but the latest version of Twitterific has won me over. Either one is a good choice, however.

    Tweetie.

    Simple, powerful, great UI, feels like an Apple app.

    i'm no longer a fan of twitterfon... it used to be an opensource project, then the arsehole closed it up, put adverts in it and released a second pro version.

    Tweetie, both for the Mac and for iPhone! Simple yet elegant way of handling tweets

    I've tested a handful for my review column for my newspaper. Twitterific is crash-prone. If you want a free one, use Twitterfon. If you want the best one, get Tweetie.

    I just ditched TwitterFon (which was good) for TweetDeck, which is brilliant!
