Update on Tweeter mobile for E71

Continuing my post about Tweeter Mobile from http://e71bynokia.blogspot.com/2009/07/twitter-mobile-download-free-twitter.htmlTwitter mobile logo

Finally I received the confirmation SMS and I was able to download the client for Twitter mobile on my E71.

After I installed the application, I was asked to register my email address and the phone number. The odd thing was that when I tried entering my phone number (in numbers obviously) I was not able enter numbers in the field as I would do typically otherwise (by holding down a number key for a long period of time). I had to change the input method to numbers to get it to work which is fine with me but I do not know if it is convenient for novices. I feel a lot of E71 users would give up here.

After I entered the details and connected the first interface I got blew me away. The interface had a world map which showed where in the world were the latest tweets being added.

Once I logged into my account I was shown my latest tweets in a very nice interface.

From the menu I could access the menu which is a docked at the bottom and like the Mac icon docks. The settings allow me to

  • see my favorites
  • see my followers
  • see people I’m followingTwitter mobile client screenshot - a twitter client for S60 phones and E71
  • see everyone’s timeline
  • change my twitter mobile settings

amongst other things.

Verdict

My Verdict on Tweeter mobile is that it is a good free application though it has restrictions like it does not allow you to see direct message, replies, retweet or reply. The advertisements are a damper as well because it seems that it takes time for the application to execute a command. I wish the makers had given a time based trial option to its free users and that would enable the free users to test the application and also give some conversions to the Tricast media as well.

On the whole the application is worth a try and provides a very good alternative to Gravity.

Hey, nice review.
I am looking for a free twitter app for my Nokia E71, but with no luck.
I think all the good stuff for twitter is not free.
Lets see if someone makes one good free software.

Cheers and Thanx!

Valmex,

Did you try the twitter mobile application. It is a good application specially the interface is very nice.

There are some shortcomings in the free version but I think if you are not a prolific user then you can live without those.

You are right that for the full features and a good interface application for E71 one has to pay.

Cheers

hey!, sounds good, but i'm looking for a free application that alerts you when you receive something! because all applications of twitter that i know only show the messages when you start the application.

Thanks !

You may also try the free @SociallyApp (http://bit.ly/6mFra0) on E71 and other Nokia phones. It supports Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn and integrates with the phone book by showing the profile photos and latest status of the callers during incoming calls. Here’s a review – http://blogs.nokia.com/dailyapp/2010/02/socially-can-tell-you-whats-up-before-answering-the-phone/
