Twittelator Pro V 1.6 ships in time for the Holidays
The High End iPhone Twitter Client
Albuquerque December 23, 2008 - Stone Design ( today shipped another major update to its top-sellingTwittelator Pro, the high-end feature-packed native iPhone Twitter client. With many power features including multiple accounts, emojis, Trending Topics, Reply Chains, and Nearby Search for Tweeters, Twittelator Pro is the culmination of the expanding Twittelator customer base’s wishes and desires.

Twittelator Pro v 1.6 features Sub Groups so you can track small subsets of your friends closely, an option to see more tweets per screen, and the ability to use an alternate Photo upload service for photos. Emoji’s are better organized and swipe to move between them, tweets with MobyPictures show inline, you can save and restore draft tweets, option to tweet without confirm, tapping a tweet with a #hashtag performs a search on that tag, and relaunching after quitting on a search will perform a new search.

International users will delight in Thomas Heinrichsdobler’s German localization and Lucas Miñano’s Spanish localization, both built in to Version 1.6.

“Just in time for the holidays” remarked Stone Design’s CEO and lead computer scientist Andrew Stone. “Twittelator Pro was the #7 best-selling social networking iPhone app of 2008. Mac guru Guy Kawasaki commented ‘
Have to say that Twittelator Pro is the way to go on iPhone’ .
