It’s springtime and the air is rife with the chirruping and tweeting of birds. Only these high pitched twitterings may actually be emanating from all the iPhone users who check Twitterific, an app that happily chirps, cheeps, and trills in the likeness of a bluebird, cardinal, or robin when you access your personal feed. Much like TwitterFon and other Twitter apps, Twitterific by the PTAJ Marketing, Inc. allows you to check for recent tweets made by people within your social network, or within your local area, and allows you to post your own tweets, with a picture or not, all in a user-friendly and self-explanatory format.
Twitterific’s portmanteau of Twitter and terrific is the most suitable description for this app. It’s just plain terrific. It does everything TwitterFon does, only better, and it is much prettier, both aesthetically and auditory-wise. I may not be a Twitter fan, biased more toward the clean, networking lines of Facebook over the gossip prone, seeming redundancy of Twitter status updates, but for those who enjoy Twitter, Twitterific offers you simple navigation and a background color palette that can be easily changed from Dark, a blackish hue, to Snowy, a dove grey, to Basic, a crisp white, depending on whether you’re more hipster dark or straight-laced white. Sure, Twitterific may have the occasional glaring advertisement running along the top of the screen, but it doesn’t detract from the showiness of the Twitter members below. And thankfully, should the chirping start to grate on your nerves, you can turn this lovely option off.
Since Twitter is not about showcasing a profile page or making reviews, or anything of the usual fashion of other social networking sites, Twitterific gives you access to the most important amenities of the Twitter.com website, namely the Public Timeline and daily, down to the minute updated tweets by your friends. Just by clicking on the Twitterific app, your iPhone vibrates, a happy chirp is heard, and all your friends’ idle thoughts, oratory gesticulations, and verbal diarrhea are ready for you to chew, digest, and spit out in your own tweet reply.
So, while most of the iPhone Twitter apps offer much of the same, since Twittering is very, very basic and uni-dimensional, why not opt for Twitterific, so you can hear a bird chirrup each time one of your friends decides to proclaim something direly important to the world.
