Osfoora HD, for Twitter – Crossover Review with Bird House Rules

by Doc Coleman - Nifty Tech Editor October 25, 2010 Crossover

[Tee has informed me that his work is sending him on a business trip this week, and he’s been unable to complete the final edits for the podcast in time to launch along with the review. I’ve included the links to the audio with this article, but I’m afraid that it may take as much as a week before there is anything on the other side of the link. Tee asked that I go ahead with the final article, so I hope you enjoy the review. – Editor]

Welcome back to the final installment of our series with Bird House Rules. We’ve finally made it to our last Twitter client for iPad. This one is another newcomer to the App store, but we think they’ve done just about everything right. My friends, I give you Osfoora HD, for Twitter by Said M. Marouf. The name may seem a bit strange, but there is a reason for it. We’ll get back to that later. Osfoora sells for $3.99, and to us, that seems like money well spent. Version 1.1.2 has a huge list of features. One of the surprising things about Osfoora HD is that it actually works as well in portrait mode as it does in landscape. The developer really put a lot of thought and effort into this client, and it shows. On top of that, he also developed and supports Osfoora for the iPhone, a separate code base. And he’s just a lone developer, working on his own. Said, our hat is off to you. In many ways, you’ve done more on your own than many large companies have done with a team of programmers. Respect, sir!

TweetTime for iPad – Crossover Review with Bird House Rules

by Doc Coleman - Nifty Tech Editor October 12, 2010 Crossover

Welcome back to another installment of the crossover series with Bird House Rules. We’re almost done with looking at Twitter clients for iPad. This week we’ll be looking at a client that is a relative newcomer to the App store, TweetTime for iPad by Dong-Wook Kim. TweetTime for iPad is a $2.99 purchase in the app store and is currently up to version 1.3.4. As is typical for applications for the iPad, landscape mode is more useful at illustrating the capabilities of the product than Portrait mode, so once again you’ll be seeing a lot of Landscape pictures here.

Twittelator for iPad – Crossover Review with Bird House Rules

by Doc Coleman - Nifty Tech Editor September 27, 2010 Crossover

And we’re back, with another crossover review with Bird House Rules. This week we’re looking at Twittelator for iPad from the folks at Stone Design, aka Big Stone Phone. Twittelator is the last of our “old favorites”, being a popular iPhone Twitter client in the past. The folks at Stone Design have been building interesting tools for a while now, and they definitely take a fresh approach to things. While there are free and paid versions of their iPhone Twittelator client, if you want it on the iPad, you’ll need to pay $4.99 for the privilege. Twittelator has long been one of Tee’s favorite clients on the iPhone, and is still one of his favorites on the iPad. Let me show you why.
