    I use Twitterific, it works fine for me but I haven't really tested any of the other twitterapps yet.

    btw: whats your twitter name? ;)

    Well, it depends on your purpose... so here's the advantages to my 2 favorite free ones.

    Pick:

    - Twitfire if your focus is super-quick posting. Nice interface, but lacking features like viewing tweets from contacts, @replies, etc. Great for things like live-blogs if you're posting one after another. I know this for a fact :D

    - Twitterrific if you want a feature-rich app with a great interface. Does pretty much anything you want from it, and then some.

    My Twitter is twitter.com/chasetastic if you ever get one and want to add me. :)

    Really? Well even Twinkle is better than that which has a really nice interface. Takes a minute to load your contacts' tweets the first time around, but after that it's quick. I used it quite a bit before I got more involved in Twitter and I really enjoyed it. It's a really great looking app. Cool sound effects, too :D

    Yeah, that's what I used it for, too. But that's cool. Your choice. :D

    It's also fun to use it to see who's Twittering around you. I was surprised how many people were Twittering within a mile of me!

    I'm not a serious Twitter user, but I like Twinkle. It gets the job done. I mostly just like to hear news from developers and some people from YouTube.

    If you're not a serious Twitter-er like me, I think Twinkle is fantastic, especially because it's free :)

    How can you not mention Tweetie? [App Store]
    In my opinion, Tweetie is _the_ twitter client for iPhone.

    Here's my picks -

    #1 - Tweetie - using this most now because it allows multiple accounts and has a bunch of great features i use (search with ability to save for one). Will cost you a couple bucks so if you're looking for a free app then #2...

    #2 - Twitterfon - very clean, easy access to your @, DM. Post to twitpic

    #3 - Twinkle (runner-up) - I like this app and turning the phone into landscape and seeing tweets pop up is brilliant. The only reason this isn't my main app is because it doesn't feel like it's main purpose is Twitter. Many of the features I personally need aren't here, but this is still a solid choice too.

    That's my 2

    TwitterFon is the best for me. Twinkle is too bloated with the sounds and localized thing.
    TwitterFon has the cleanest interface, the smoothest scrolling, it's free and has a nice icon! :D

    I tested Twinkle and Twitterfon now and while I didn't care for Twinkle (like Gregz0r says, it feels bloated) I love Twitterfon, its much better than Twitterrific.

    I also would like to know what makes Tweetie so special? What functions does it have that other free Twitterclients don't?

    Ok, you guys got me started on looking for a new Twitter app. I've tested Twinkle, Twitterfon, Twitterific and Twittelator.

    So far my top favorites are Twittelator and Twitterfon.

    I'm thinking about getting Twittelator pro or whatever for $5 but I could possibly get Tweetie for $3 since I have heard lots of great things about it. Does anyone have Twittelator Pro that could tell me if it's worth it?

    Thanks
