Daring Fireball: The Unsatisfying State of Twitter Web Clients for the iPhone

Gruber compares web clients for Twitter on the iPhone. Personally, I think Thincloud is pretty good (and my favorite of the bunch), but it still hasn’t been enough to make me give up Twitter over SMS. Gruber says Twitter over SMS is too annoying — I disagree. I find it to be perfect. It has all the feature John wants, works well, and has the most “iPhoney” interface of all.

All that having been said, I hope (and suspect) someone will create a killer native iPhone app for release after iPhone 2.0 is out.

    All that being said, this is an impressively in depth look into something that probably didn’t warrant it.

    I think that Twinkle for jailbroken iPhones is quite good. With a few small fixes (like being able to click on links inside twitter posts) it will be a great solution.

    Also, its quite fun to use the locate twitter posts near me feature; especially as more and more people begin to use it.

    Yeah, Twinkle looks pretty interesting. I’m not willing to jailbreak my iPhone, but I’m looking forward to checking it out once iPhone 2.0 is out and it’s been ported the the official platform.
