I haven't posted one of these types of articles in awhile so I thought I'd throw one up. There's been a couple of significant changes in some of the primary apps I am using on my main iPhone home screen:
- Twitterrific 5 ($2.99 Universal) - Now my go to Twitter client on iOS. I grew tired of the dated look of Tweetbot. Twitteriffic is missing some key features such as full iCloud sync of read status and support for Twitter timeline streaming (where tweets are pushed to the device immediately upon being sent as opposed to the app retrieving new posts on a timed basis). Overall, the smoothness of Twitteriffic and swipe gestures make it my twitter client of choice.
- Calendars+ ($6.99 Universal) - A very clean looking calendar app. Not as feature ridden as Pocket Informant, but it is fast and efficient. I am still using Fantastical in conjunction with Launch Center Pro for natural language input for when I need to add new calendar entries quickly.
- The Transit App (Free) - If you live in a major metropolitan area and you are dependent on public transportation, run, don't walk and get this app. The app uses location based services to show you what transportation stops are in your local area and shows the time remaining for the next train, bus, etc. From my use, the schedule has been extremely accurate and reliable.
