Do you tweet? Or, follow? Either way, if you’re on Twitter and beyond a browser tab stuck on Twitter.com, you’ll need a Mac app for that.
Twitter apps are a dime a dozen, and some will give you change. Twitter’s official app is free, and it’s pretty good, so other Twitter apps need a big list of features to catch your attention and some of you coin.
Tweeting Isn’t For Twits
The number one function for Twitter users is to waste time in life. Seriously. What’s the point? I follow some funny folks on Twitter, but I’ll never have 1-million followers, so what’s the point of my tweets?
Tweetings is one of those full-featured Mac and iPhone Twitter apps that gives you a list of features and functions you know, and even more you don’t know about, and one that’s a killer.
Yes, there’s the ubiquitous Twitter timeline, which also displays mentions along with the tweets of Twitterers you follow.
But, there’s a conversation view, so you can follow threads. Tweetings checks list, syncs timelines, and, a favorite of anyone with family, kids, relatives, and naked neighbors, inline image display.
Tweetings also gives you a look at who retweeted you. Timeline be damned, it even display all your sent tweets.
Posting & Custom Features
Tweetings uses the new style Twitter ReTweet, and lets you upload photos to all kinds of Twitter photo capture places, including Twitpic, yFrog, Twitgoo, MobyPicture, TweetPhoto, Posterous and others.
There’s TwitLonger when 140 characters strains the blabbermouth in you.
It even posts tweets to Facebook. Yes, there are multiple accounts, sound notifications, bookmarklets and short URLs, all built in.
Here’s the best feature yet, and that alone makes Tweetings worth the few bucks on the price tag.
Scheduled tweets. Instead of flooding your followers with tweets, dole them out one by one, over a time schedule.
Tweetings will make sure the tweets get sent within a 15-minute time period. That makes it look like you’re on Twitter all day, even when you’re drinking at a bar, or hanging out at the salon.
