With this post we welcome Ammar Mahmood (@dedarkpassenger), the latest addition to our writers panel. Here he analyses Tweetcaster, the alternative to Twitter’s official app.
One of the few scenarios where a 3rd party app is more rated than the official one and not by thousands of user but by more than 0.4 million users.
And why is that? Here are the few things that you can do with TWEETCASTER only.
If you want to know:
· How many tweets are you sending out to the world daily?
· Whom are you mentioning, retweeting and DMing the most?
· The hours when your followers are tweeting most?
· Your most favourited followers ?
· Most active and inactive followers?
You would love to know this all and for that my friends, you need to switch to TWEETCASTER.
Want to avoid someone’s boring or irritating tweets without unfollowing: just ZIP IT!!!
Want to see who is tweeting from your neighbourhood. Just switch on your location and leave the rest to TWEETCASTER.
Most recent feature of this amazing app. You don’t need to slide your screen down again ever to update as your tweets and mentions arrive in REAL TIME.
COLOR CODE TWEETS:
Choose a custom colour for your Tweets and mentions.
Only want to surf through images, links or videos: NOT A PROBLEM. Smart filter enables you to filter your tweets by text, images, links or videos. Here is a preview:
Bored of one colour. Want to change the theme of your timeline. TWEETCASTER does it for you. You can choose between 12 different themes. Try it. It’s FUN.
BUT THERE IS ONE TEENY TINY CON OF THIS AMAZING APP
Free version comes with ADS . Bottom corner but not very irritating ones. For PRO version you need to spend £3.07. But the free version is so good and does the job pretty well so you don’t need to get the PRO version.
Editor’s Note: This has been one of our favourite apps for a long time. However, there is one thing the main Twitter app offers, which almost all other apps do not give, or when they do give, it is quite a bit of hassle. That is the ‘Connections’ tab in its whole. This does not show ‘Favourites’ and Follows under the connections tab, but if you click on your profile and click ‘Interactions’, you get the complete information. This means there is bit of a round about way to access that information, but at least the information is there, unlike some other clients. This makes this an ideal alternative to the default Twitter app.
