This one has been a long time coming. And I’ll admit, I’ve been saving this one for a special occasion. This week, something finally fit the bill.
This isn’t the first time I’ve written about Tee Morris. It’s not even the first time I’ve written about him on the Nifty Tech Blog. In the first month of the blog I wrote about The Boom Effect, an online fundraiser to provide for the future of Tee’s daughter, Sonic Boom, after the tragic death of Tee’s wife. Then in March, Tee returned to talk about Twitter, which served to kick off the #FollowFriday series. Then in August he dragged me into the world of podcasting with the six-part crossover series with Tee’s Bird House Rules Podcast looking at Twitter clients for the iPad. So why am I writing about him now?

[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!
