Along with the release of the new TweetDeck for iPhone, the Tweetdeck Team is also releasing a new version of their Tweetdeck Desktop. Some of the mains highlights in the new version include the following:
- Sync – you can automatically synchronise TweetDeck between your desktop and iPhone, making it really simple to import your columns and groups so you can be up and running on iPhone in a matter of minutes – no reinventing the wheel. Sync works in the background so whenever you change a group or add a new search column it’s updated and available on all your computers and your iPhone. This also means that everything can be backed up in case your computer ever crashes.
- Multiple account support – you can now have multiple accounts with no need to switch between them. Whether you’re on the desktop or iPhone we’ve made it simple to see all your columns, for all your accounts and tweet from any account or even cross-post tweets to numerous Twitter accounts at the same time.
- Unlimited columns – you’ll be happy to hear that you can now have as many columns as you’d like on TweetDeck. No more 10 columns limit, now the sky’s the limit.
- Local trends – rather than only being able to see what’s trending on Twitter as a whole, with local trends, you can now see what’s hot among your own friends and colleagues. You’ll be able to run local trends on any of your columns in TweetDeck.
Here’s a quick list of everything else that you can expect to see in the new desktop version:
- Conversation window – View an entire dialogue all at once.
- Video playback – Watch Qik or 12seconds video clips from the comfort of TweetDeck.
- New ‘Block & Report Spam’ button – Just one click will delete the message from view, block the user and report them to Twitter.
- TweetDeck Recommends column – Find new and interesting people to follow whether you’re a Twitter newbie or a veteran of the Twitterverse.
- ‘Reply All’ – Tweet everyone mentioned in a tweet in just a couple of clicks.
- YFrog – Share and preview YFrog photos inside TweetDeck.
- Smart filter – Start typing a username to find a person and add them to a group quickly and easily.
- RE (In reference to) tweets – Easily comment on a discussion.
Now that’s a lot of mouthful — be sure to download it and try it out yourself!!
Do you use TweetDeck?? Now you are gonna love it more — because it’s now available on the iPhone and iPod Touch for free and we are kinda loving it a lot. It’s sweet and easy to use and has all the main features from its desktop counterpart such as multiple account, columns, groups and saved searches. The interface is pretty slick and we have to say it’s comparable to Twitterrific, except it has a much richer feature set and might be a bit more complex to use, but other than that, the app is one of the best iPhone Twitter app out there. Some features include:
- Tweet directly from your iPhone or iPod Touch.
- Manage multiple Twitter accounts.
- View notifications for new tweets received.
- Use columns to create your personal dashboard.
- Simply sync to set-up
- Continuously updates between your desktop and iPhone.
- Create Groups to easily follow all your friends.
- Follow topics in real-time with saved searches.
- Reply to tweets and send direct messages.
- Easily re-tweet messages.
- Share photos with Twitpic and YFrog.
- Shorten links with your favourite URL shortener.
- Follow and un-follow people.
- Shake your iPhone to refresh columns.
We have played and tested it out for a few hours or so and here are some pictures to show you what it’s truly all about:
OK — it has arrived, the supposedly Twitpocalypse is taking place now and some Twitter clients have been taken down with it. (though not as large-scale as expected) Some examples include the Twitterrific for iPhone [details here] which I am currently using as well as TweetDeck and Destroy Twitter. The Twitpocalypse website has also updated and is now showing that the unique identifier associated to each tweet has now exceeded 2,147,483,647 which means some Twitter clients will start to crash or malfunction. Other than that, the Twitter website seems to be working fine. We will be keeping more updates on this.
