My personal Favorite part of Touiteur, coming from the “Wizard of Beautiful Widgets” they gotta be good, right?... you decide J
As you will see Tama has outdone himself with the widgets included with Touiteur. Not only do they look like a part of the 2.1(2.0.1) OS , they are very functional and intuitive!
Currently in the latest Beta there are 2 feature packed widgets, a 4x1 and a 4x2. I have a feeling Tama will complete the group with a 4x3 and a 4x4, only time will tell.
Android Widget select screen (note they have a “0” in front of them in the bęta for quicker access during testing)
Screen capture showing how well the 4x1 Touiteur Widget matches other 2.1/2.0.1 Éclair Widgets.
Here is a screen capture of the 4x1 and 4x2 Widgets.
The Widgets automatically scroll through the last 10 Tweets every 30 seconds!
If you notice on the very bottom of the widgets there are 3 discreet buttons..
The Left button lights up blue when tapped…
…and opens up the “Send Tweet” popup screen J
The Middle button lights up white when tapped…
..and Opens up the Main Touiteur app J
The Right button lights up red when tapped…
…and manually scrolls the last 10 tweets on the widget in the order they were received!
Well that about wraps it up for now. The scary part is Tama created both of these widgets last night while Tweeting back and forth with Jonkyu and I over just a few hours time…we would make suggestions and give him feedback and minutes later we would have a new beta in our mailbox. He has 9 days left before the scheduled release and there is no telling what kind of goodies he will come up with between now and then!
Currently it is my understanding there will be a free version, most likely without widgets and multiple account support, and a full version for 1.99 euros. That is just my understanding from some of Tama’s tweets and I am sure we will announce exact details soon.
Whatever the price ends up being I don’t think you can find a more creative, professional and supportive developer on the Market to support. With the fantastic Beautiful Widgets and now Touiteur I can’t wait to see what Tama comes up with next!!
