PockeTwit Review

Just wanted to write up a quick review for my favorite windows mobile twitter app, PockeTwit. I’ve tried several twitter apps and PockeTwit is the only one that I’ve found that does everything I want. The first thing that I liked about PockeTwit is the user interface. My new tweets show up on the main page in a list with kinetic scrolling. Also, to get to the menu it just takes a swipe of your finger. From left to right will bring up the “Global” menu. This is like the main menu. It has options to refresh your friend TimeLine, settings, post a tweet, and some other useful options. If you swipe your finger from right to left it brings up the “Specific” menu. This menu has options for whatever user you currently have selected in your TimeLine. This includes responding (@someone), quoting, sending an e-mail, making a favorite, viewing that person’s TimeLine, viewing their profile, stop following them, and move or copy them to a group. Another thing that I like with PockeTwit is the integration with other services. You can upload a picture, shorten an URL, or set your location via GPS all from the Post Update screen. The integration also goes the other direction. To view a picture that is uploaded to any of the supported sites, all you have to do is click on the link in the tweet. It pops up in its own windows, no browser is needed. The final standout feature for me is Groups. PockeTwit allows you to put certain people into different groups. This is great if you follow a lot of people, but have a certain group of people whose tweets you don’t want to get lost in your main Friends TimeLine. All you have to do is add them to a group, then view that group’s TimeLine. The only tweets that show up are tweets from users in that group. So, as you can see, PockeTwit offers some great features. The only problem I have with PockeTwit is that I find it hard to click a link. It usually takes me a few tries before the picture shows up or Opera opens. Other than that this is a great program. Give it a try and see what you think.

Another good twitter app is Twikini. It is still in beta, but it is already a really good twitter app. It isn’t quite as polished as PockeTwit, but it seems like it is on its way to being one of the best Windows Mobile twitter apps.

If you have any favorite Twitter clients. Let me know in the comments.
