It's lost Twitter from its name, but this is still for hardcore 14-character writers
by on August 1, 2011
The world of third-party Twitter clients is a complicated one, full of goalposts that seem to up and move every few months. The app formerly known as UberTwitter is testament to that, being forced to change its name, among other things. It’s still an extremely powerful Twitter client, though, and one that’s eminently customisable.
The Uber Bar (yes, really) at the top takes you to the various screens, including your timeline, mentions, direct messages and the usual Twitter options. In addition, there are a few more tricks on offer. The Inner Circle view is a way of collecting tweets and messages from certain users, specified by you. It offers a quick way to see correspondence with your most important followers/followed.
There are plenty more options, and you can also perform lots of quick tasks from the Menu key. Delve into the settings and you can specify all sorts of default options, and change the font and point size of tweets. UberSocial is also location-tastic, and offers media upload options when posting a new tweet. On top of all that, it’s able to cross-post to Facebook, if you can’t be tied to one social network.
UberSocial is free, but is ad-supported. This mostly just means an ad at the top of your timeline. It’s certainly more powerful than the official Twitter app, but it has so many options it can be a little unwieldy to use.
