Twitter Apps

Following on from the "interesting" browsers thread, what about twitter apps?

I have yet to find one I totally love - they all have nice features. Twelve months ago, I would have said tweetcaster. I stuck with Plume for quite a while, but recently have been using Falcon. Carbon, which everyone seems to be raving about, is a triumph of style over substance IMO - looks great but too limited.

I like twitter apps with streaming, so I don;t need to keep refreshing, especially on wifi.This is most improtant to me when I'm following a football match or other live event, as the updates appear in real time. Falcon does that best of the current crop... the new update of tweetcaster is close behind. My biggest issue with Falcon is that I don't really like the interface - too many boxes and lines... and then there's the real new kid on the block - Robird (@RobirdAndroid). It's evolving very quickly, with new updates daily adding features - it's very very fast, but doesn't have any sort of timeline autorefresh or streaming yet. But it is a tiny app compared to the other clients, so that might swing it for general use.

I recently switched away from Plume as I felt it started feeling too bloated. I am now using Tweedle which makes me wish I'd found it months ago. It is also quite new and missing a couple of features. But it is speedy and light weight and I like the UI a lot. It is also updated frequently.

Tweedle is a bit TOO light for me - it looks nice, but there's no conversation option, no retweet history, no configuration of refresh times.

I like Plume because, amongst other things, it supports TweetMarker - keeps my desktop* and phone synchronized to the same point in my feed. Not found any other client that has this. (*via Chrome extension, which is currently broken). I also like Plume for it's large, in line images, which can be viewed in full instantly.

Another contender is SocialScope, but I've not tried it for a while.

Slightly off-topic: I dislike using third-party apps for Facebook, as I find timelines to be incomplete cos some people have changed their security settings and don't appear.

Yeah, Falcon is probably my favourite - it does everything... but I just find the UI a little busy, and the app is heavy. I wish the dev would do a clean theme without all teh silly boxes and lines. It, and Robird, both support tweetmarker.

I only ever use a browser my needs are that basic. The mobile site has recently stopped resuming from the last read tweet and instead goes to the last tweet. Very annoying. So I'll be trying some if your recommendations, thanks.
