In the present I still don't understand why there are Twitter clients been developed when we consider Twitter's stance against developers. But here is a new alternative Slices for iPhone.
- Finding Follows – Slices is the only Twitter app with Explore. Explore is a directory of all of Twitter. With 21 browsable, searchable categories, finding people and lists to follow is astonishingly easy and fun.
- Live Events – Only Slices has Live Event streams, finally making it easy to follow live events on Twitter. Each stream displays a feed of tweets from the “right” people for today’s events, like sports, TV shows, and other happenings.
- Timeline Slicer – Another exclusive feature, the Timeline Slicer helps you organize your timeline into “Slices”. These are mini-feeds that you define, letting you read what you want, when you want it.
- Bookmarks – Anyone who browses the web is familiar with the Bookmark concept. But Slices is the first Twitter app with bookmarks. Just like on a web browser, you can bookmark favorite Twitter accounts or lists for easy access.
- Mobile-to-Web – Slices lives on your iPhone AND the Slices website. All your actions are automatically synchronized. No struggle to find where you left off, or notifications of messages/mentions that you have already seen.
- Up to 5 Twitter accounts
- Post to Facebook
- Auto sign-in to Twitter via iOS 5+
- Search Party – Enhanced search of your own timeline, individual accounts, mentions, private messages and more.
- SmartLists - Twitter lists with lots power user capabilities
- Zip It - Hide unwanted tweets without unfollowing
- Smart Filters - Filter your timeline with one tap to show only tweets with photos or videos
One downside to this app is the lack of push notifications. The free app is ad-supported, an in-app purchase of $4.99 removes them.
There is also a web version in the works that should sync with the iPhone app.
You can download Slices and try it put for free in the App Store [iTunes Link].
