Twittelator Pad is the iPad Twitter App to Beat

If you have an iPad and a Twitter account, you owe it to yourself to check out the Twittelator app. This app is as close to the web experience as I’ve ever seen on an external client. It is very full-featured, and incorporates almost all of Twitter’s features. You’ll find geo-location, lists and list management, adding and blocking of people and more. All of these features are hidden in a good way. They are brought up quickly with a gesture when you need them and won’t clutter up the interface when you don’t.

The clean layout is fluid and has a lot of room. It takes excellent advantage of the iPad screen real estate. It doesn’t feel “cluttered” as so many apps tend to. The integrated web browser is genius. You can mail, tweet and open links in the native Apple Safari browser.

You can set your own wallpaper to make the app more of a “you” experience. Another cool little feature is that the app will automatically split up long tweets to allow longer messages. This may seem like a bit of overkill. After all – aren’t Tweets supposed to be less than 140 characters? Whether or not you’re a fan of extending those limitations, you have to agree that having the option to do so is a good one.

This really is an excellent client… the best I’ve tried for the iPad thus far. If you have other recommendations, email them to me so I can try them out. Being a Twitter addict – and an iPad aficionado – tends to make me demand the best of the best.

Twitter on the iPad

If the world is a stage, then the people on Twitter must be the cast. I don’t know too many people who aren’t registered on the popular social network. The ones who aren’t are missing out, that’s all I have to say. Mark definitely has a handle on Twitter. He knows what apps work, and which ones don’t. Now that he has the iPad, he’s able to tell us what’s best to use on that device.

Tweetie 2 has a ton of cool features and a nice interface. It allows you to have more than one user account, and helps you see what’s happening all over Twitter. Mark noted that when magnified to full-screen, the text looks a little blurry.

Twitterific is another client that was tweaked for the iPad. There’s nothing really new, and it’s not very pleasing to the eye. It is free, so you get what you pay for.

In Mark’s opinion, TweetDeck got it right when it comes to changing things up to work on the iPad. He says that the developers worked hard to make good use of the screen real estate, and that it just plain looks great.

Tweet From Your iPad With Twitepad

I’m willing to bet that nearly everyone who ordered an iPad is on Twitter. I’d also wager that most of those people will be looking for a Twitter app as soon as their iPad is in their hot little hands. After all, how else are they going to brag to everyone that they now own an iPad?

In a few short days, the iPad will begin arriving on doorsteps all over the world. Developers have been working hard to create apps that consumers will feel they cannot live without. I have already seen several dozen different offerings and sneak peeks. TUAW discovered the above preview of the interesting Twitepad Twitter application.

Twitepad makes good use of the screen real estate on this new gadget by integrating a web browser into the client. This makes it easy to check out articles or links that appear on a Twitter timeline. Your iPad screen will be divided into two panes… one displaying your Twitter columns and one that contains the browser.

With Twitepad, you can use an unlimited number of Twitter accounts. If you are a person who doesn’t like to mix business with pleasure on Twitter, this app can accommodate all of your “personalities”.

If you have your iPad in Portrait view, you’ll have three columns in Twitepad. However, in Landscape view there are four of them. You can add, delete and rearrange all of these columns quickly by dragging them around.

I will be getting an iPad, and I am planning to try this app out for myself as soon as it’s available.
