The popular TweetDeck free app for Apple iPhone and iPod touch users has been updated to v1.3, and introduces support for Twitter Lists and geo-tagging.
Tweetdeck lets users create groups, search Twitter, manage multiple accounts, and post tweets or share photos, videos, links and more via a customisable interface, which automatically syncs with its desktop counterpart.
It’s our current choice of Twitter client for iPhones, although the interface can seem a bit bewildering and searching is unnecessarily fiddly. Why can’t they sort out a simple search box?
Tweets can now automatically be geo-tagged with the current location using the iPhone’s GPS, and there’s an inline map available showing the location of tweets.
The ‘View on Map’ feature lets you view all geo-coded tweets from a selected column and plots them on a map, with the option to zoom in and check out the exact location of your Twitterin’ chums.
v1.3 update details:
- Geo-tagging of tweets
- Tweet detail shows map for geo-coded tweets
- View all geo-coded tweets from a column on a map
- New-style Retweets displayed in stream, showing originator and retweeter name
- Send new-style or old-style retweets, save your preference & easily change on a per-tweet basis
- Add columns for Twitter Lists
- Numerous bug fixes, including Facebook UID issue
