Tweetie 2 for iPhone released and old one discontinued

Users of Tweetie 1.x don’t get free upgrade to Tweetie 2, but instead must buy it again – it seems a bit unfair but obviously author of the Tweetie decided to hit the jackpot second time instead of supporting old customers…

Here is how Tweetie 2 looks like:




Short description from the developer:

The Twitter client that redefined Twitter clients is back, and it’s even better. Rewritten from the ground up with a fast and powerful new core, Tweetie 2 offers the most polished mobile Twitter experience around.

– Seamlessly handle multiple Twitter accounts
– Explore all of Twitter, from your own timeline and mentions, to the favorite tweets of your followers and friends
– Full persistence: more than just caching tweets, Tweetie 2 restores your entire UI if you quit or get a phone call
– Fantastic new offline mode. Read, tweet, favorite, follow, save to Instapaper and more even when you don’t have a connection. Your actions will be synced as soon as you go back online
– Full landscape support (configurable of course)
– Live-filter your tweet stream
– Post photos and videos, even configure your own custom image host
– Vastly improved compose screen with recent hashtags, @people picker, URL shortening and more
– Compose screen multiple-attachments manager
– Drafts manager ensures you never lose a tweet (and you can even send drafts to Birdhouse)
– Link Twitter contacts to Address Book contacts
– Follow, unfollow, block and unblock from multiple accounts simultaneously
– Saved searches sync with and the upcoming Tweetie 2 for Mac
– Autocomplete recent searches and Go-to-user
– Threaded Direct Messages and improved conversation navigation
– TextExpander integration
– Rich integration with Follow Cost, Tweet Blocker, and more
– Edit your own Twitter profile
– Specify custom API roots on a per-account basis
– Nearby map view
– Translate tweets
– Preview short URLs
– Safari bookmarklet support for easily sharing links
– In-app rich text email composition
– Tons of little things, including improved avatar caching, auto-refresh, refresh-all, seamless Twitlonger support, hashtag definitions and more
– This is just the beginning. Tweetie 2 is already built to take advantage of great new features coming from Twitter, so expect updates turning them on soon!

Conclusion: while it is disappointing for old customers who paid for Tweetie, tha tthey have to pay again, apparently new version is faster and has some new features, so if you are an iPhone user, you might be compelled to buy it.
