The brilliant do-it-all Twitter widget makes an early debut on the tablet and makes an instant impact

Tweetdeck Review

by on June 5, 2010

Many excellent desktop of laptop apps don’t require much alteration to fit perfectly onto the iPad, but the scrolling touchscreen on the Tweetdeck app certainly goes a long way to improving an already brilliant experience.

It’s easy to set up multiple Twitter accounts and then organise those accounts into three columns for friends, mentions, and direct messages.

You can access the latest tweet from your followees and the latest activity surrounding the account, in an easy to use interface. It has links to Bit.ly to create those Twitter-friendly short links, and webpages are even viewable within the site, or you have the option of viewing in Safari. It’s a very comprehensive experience.

The screen is very full, however, so wherever you press you’re going to hit something, especially with the iPad’s extra sensitive touchscreen, there’s really no margin for error.

Updates aren’t live and require a refresh and the application is partial to crashing occasionally at the moment. You also can’t add Facebook accounts to this incarnation of the app, but we can’t complain too much because as it stands this is the ultimate Twitter companion for iPad.
