Tweetie 2.1 for iPhone released – with support for lists, geotagging, gap detection

Loren Brichter, who has developed Tweetie is one of those developers who have hit the jackpot and got rich thanks to iPhone. Most of such developers are “one-trick-pony” and cannot reproduce hits after the first time. It looks like Loren is trying hard to keep his Tweetie Twitter client on top by releasing new Twitter features very quickly after they were introduced by Twitter.

Of course support for Twitter lists is our favorite new feature of Tweetie 2.1:


… but gap detection comes close as second most favorite:


… and it enables visual demarcation that points out that there is a gap in timeline.

Of course geotagging is very important too:


Finally new Tweetie indicates which tweets are geotagged (by red pin) and which tweets are actually re-tweets in Twitters new retweeting technology (by red triangle):


Conclusion: it looks like Tweetie is the best commercial (not free) Twitter client on the app store, however obviously competition is big and users switch Twitter clients like gloves… but Loren Brichter, the Tweetie developer, is not a slacker and Tweetie 2.1 is impressive.
