Twitter has caught on in a huge way for many internet addicts and blog fanatics alike but the biggest problem with the site can be the time it takes to access and peruse when you’re just looking to make a quick update.
The Twinkle app for the iPhone looks to address this by providing a far more productive method of using Twitter.
Twinkle provides a convenient way to posting tweets no matter where you are and does so with a great deal of ease. The iPhone app functions perfectly and allows for quick Twitter use without having to go through the hassle of logging on to your computer to get onto the website.
The most interesting capability that Twinkle brings to the table is the ability to tweet your location data along with your message. While it is a great method of using the iPhone’s technological capabilities to enhance your posts it should be noted that this GPS information is only visible for other Twinkle users and doesn’t show up through the Twitter website.
For hardcore Twitter fans Twinkle is a good call although it does lose points for not having the map feature translate onto the main site (and adding their official user, Twinkleking to your list!). Overall the app is still a great download for those who tweet often enough that portable access is a relevant selling feature.
