TweetDeck for iPad

Nope, there’s no mention of it if that’s what you thought when you read the title. But it is the subject of this musing.

I wonder if we will still see TweetDeck on the iPad following the Twitter buy-out. I really hope so as I love TweetDeck on Chrome, it’s by far the best Twitter experience, in my most humble of opinions, and I truly hope that an iPad app is stil in the making and that it will offer a similar experience to “ChromeDeck”.

What do you think? Will we see TweetDeck on the iPad?

TweetDeck for iOS arrives

After what has seemed like a very long wait, TweetDeck has released TweetDeck for iOS (click the link for the TweetDeck blog post).

First impressions are good, the UI is intuitive, sign-in very quick and most of the features you need are already in.

I did notice that it didn’t seem to load all of my contacts and there are some text issues when scrolling through the lists columns (see below screen grab, the title text is very difficult to read).

I’m really looking forward to giving it a more thorough test drive, first impressions are great!  Let’s hope the iPad version isn’t too long (the blog states a couple of weeks).

Chromedeck

Yesterday the excellent Chromedeck Twitter (web based) app was released alongside the opening of the Chrome Web Store.

If you are familiar with TweetDeck then you will instantly feel at home with Chromedeck.  While it may not have all the features of it’s desktop older brother (yet) it has enough to make it very useable indeed.

As a netbook user I find it incredibly nimble and fluid alongside the desktop version.  So much so that it’s now my full time Twitter client away from the iPhone.

Try it out, I don’t think you will be disappointed.  Let me know what you think…
