Tweetr : Sweet Apollo Based Twitter Application

Twitter really began to take off right before we launched the Apollo alpha. At the time, it seemed that everyone (myself included), was creating an Apollo based Twitter client. I tried them all out, as well as some non-Apollo clients, but none of them really felt right, and I ended up not using them.

Yesterday, I stumbled upon Tweetr (I think I saw it from one of Scoble’s tweets), and have been using constantly since I found it. I can’t really put my finger on why I like this one so much more than all the other Twitter apps, but I think it has something to do with the simple UI, ease of use, and application focus (it just does Twitter and does it well).

Btw, Tweetr has the distinction of a couple of firsts for an Apollo application:

  1. First Apollo Application that made it to the front of digg
  2. First Apollo application that I set to automatically run when my computer starts

OK, so the second one is not that big of a distinction.

Anyways, if you use Twitter, make sure to check it out.
