Everyone’s favorite iPhone Twitter client is about to get some serious competition in the TweetDeck iPhone app. Tweetie (iTunes link), touted by many an iPhone user as the best thing since the invention of the Twitter “mention,” is a 2009 Apple Design Award Winner and boasts more user reviews than some apps have downloads. But, that was all before we got a sneak peak at the iPhone-bound mobile Twitter client. TweetDeck for iPhone is badass, just ask Digg’s Kevin Rose!
The TweetDeck for iPhone looks a lot like its desktop counterpart, which is great for TweetDeck fans. But, its beauty is more than skin deep. Column-based views, iPhone-to-desktop sync and toolbar status updates. And, from what we can see in Rose’s screenshots, the TweetDeck for iPhone app is as full-featured Tweetie.
The app is still in beta, but here’s to hoping that it hits the AppStore soon!
