The iPhone version of the Iconfactory’s client for the Twitter messaging service, Twitterrific—which won an Apple Design Award earlier this year—finally left the nest Thursday with the release of the iTunes App Store.
Twitterrific displays tweets from your contacts and lets you send tweets. The program includes integration with twitpic.com, so you can take a photo (or pick one from your photo library) and it will automatically be uploaded to twitpic.com with the URL embedded in your tweet. An embedded Web browser lets you tap on user names or hyperlinks and view the contents without leaving the program.
As with the desktop app, the iPhone version of Twitterrific is being offered in two different versions. There’s a free version that periodically displays advertisements, and a $10 “Twitterrific Premium” which is ad free.
