TwitterFon

THE DESCRIPTION:
TwitterFon is a free twitter client for iPhone and iPod Touch.

THE GOOD:
TwitterFon is simple, free, and attractive. You can read your friends’ tweets, and if you click on an arrow at the right of the tweet, you go to a page for that particular tweet. On that page, you can see the tweeter’s information and a tweet timeline, reply to the tweet, send a direct message, or re-tweet with the push of a button. Buttons on the bottom of the screen let you view your friends page, @mentions, direct messages, favorite tweets, and search. It’s easy to use and has all the basic twitter functions.

THE BAD:
It’s ad-supported, so there’s a banner at the top. You can only see the most recent tweets – it doesn’t automatically store older tweets, even ones that are unread.

THE BOTTOM LINE:
There’s a pro version for $4.99 that auto reloads, scrolls automatically to first unread tweet, and lets you upload pics to TwitPic, view trending topics, and do a vicinity search for friends using GPS. For bells and whistles, you can’t beat TwitterFonPro, but for most people’s daily social networking needs, TwitterFon is a good choice.
