[Review: iPhone App] Tweetie 3.0 Vs tweetaholic for iPhone

tweetaholic and Twitter for iPhone are both highly anticipated iPhone twitter Apps.

The Ui (User interface):
On start up for tweetaholic you are greeted by the mascot, Carlos The Bird, (why does a Twitter app have a mascot?) and the wheel of options! Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos which let’s you access you’re timeline, mentions, profile, and options. Which can be pretty cool but can be hard to navigate at times.

Is alot easier to use for people who are new to twitter. Twitter for iPhone (tweetie 3.0) interface is alot more clean then tweetaholics, While tweetaholic can be fun on start up, but it does not have the same clean feel that Twitter for iPhone (tweetie 3.0) does.

The Features:
In tweetaholic you can blacklist tweets (which is why i bought this app) using words or usernames but blacklisting is case sensitive so you don’t always get what you want. (Note: the developer has submitted an update to fix this)
tweetaholic also has boxcar Integration.

Trending now on Twitter for iPhone (tweetie 3.0) has a nice
scrolling tweets list. Boxcar also works on Twitter for iPhone (tweetie 3.0), which is great.

The Bad Things:
(i don’t normally do lists but today’s different)
No native push notifications on both Apps.
In both apps it does not show what tweets are new and what’s not.
I dont like shaking to refresh on tweetaholic.
tweetaholic does not save you’r place in the timeline.
Twitter for iPhone (tweetie 3.0) needs to show how many new tweets you have.
Twitter for iPhone (tweetie 3.0) does not have blacklisting.

The Overview:
tweetaholic and Twitter for iPhone (tweetie 3.0) are both great Twitter apps, there are a few problems with both apps, but it’s not like they are gonna kill you or anything.

Twitter for iPhone 4 out of 5
tweetaholic 4 out of 5

Now I don’t normally write reviews for Twitter apps, but i thought this would be fun.
