While it is possible to visit the Twitter web site from your iPhone or iPad, using a dedicated Twitter client enables you to get a great deal more out of the site, taking advantage of features and options that would not otherwise be available.

Working in portrait and landscape mode, UberTwitter includes everything you would expect to find in a Twitter client and plenty more besides. With features such as URL shortening, tweet shrinking and support for tweets over the standard 140 character, the app enables you to make the most of the popular social networking tool.

The latest version of UberTwitter includes a number of features and enhancements that were lacking from previous releases. What was once little more than a promising Twitter client is now a fully-fledged development that delivers on its promises.

An interesting option to be found in UberTwitter is the 'mute' feature. This makes it possible to block another user's tweets for a certain period of time.

Verdict

A highly successful port of the Blackberry Twitter client, UberTwitter could teach a lot to other iOS clients.
