Using Tweetdeck on the iPhone

One of the benefits of hosted services is that you can often swap clients without much fuss. In case of Twitter, just enter username and password, and you are in the game with a new client. I have used quite a few on the iPhone, currently Tweetdeck. Many people looked at it just briefly and decided that the fonts on the user interface are too small. Well, just tap on the screen and it zooms in on the card.

And it stays that way. I guess Tweetdeck just wants to educate you on the columns it presents, but you can swipe left and right in the zoomed state as well. Works very well for me.

I do not see why developers of twitter clients think reading white text on a black background is a good idea.

if you ask me, "twitterfon pro" is best iphone app for the iphone and has the best reading UI.

I guess in this case it's because the area around the screen is also black. Twitterfon was the app I was using before Tweetdeck.

I started my Twitter experience last week with Twitterdeck, but dropped it again becaue it would only let me connect with Twitter while being in a Wifi network. As soon as I stepped outside of my home/office and got my data from the UMTS network (in Zürich, Switzerland), it complained that my internet was too slow and authentication failed.

Twitterfon works like a charm when I am outside. However, if Tweetdeck didn't give me such a strange error, I'd switch back to it.

@Philip: I have that same problem with Tweetdeck on 3G, but after the error message it still connects and refreshes. maybe a reinstall will help?
