If you still own a Nokia phone running the Symbian or Nokia Belle then you’re not alone patronizing this device. My Nokia N8 is about two years old but it seems it’s hard to get away with it. Since I am more active on Twitter than on other social network sites I’m keen on finding Twitter apps that suit my tweeting needs. After trying most (if not all) of the Twitter apps for Symbian or Nokia Belle I found the features and UI of Tweeties and Twimgo being presented in a clever way. I’ve been using and switching between these apps since then.
Both have the features that I use most of the time – tweet, retweet, retweet old school or with comments, reply to tweets, tweet with locations, images preview, lists access, favourites, mentions and profile view. It saves me time to just access these easily in the app.
There are, however, differences to compete these two Twitter mobile apps in a race. But the following differences didn’t give me any reason to shun one of them; hence the switching.
- Color – Tweeties has white while Twimgo has the options to choose between dark and light. I prefer the dark one when the light in the environment is too much. Otherwise white is preferable, too.
- Image uploading – Unfortunately I couldn’t upload an image on Twitter or other Twitter photo uploading sites with Twimgo. But with Tweeties I could upload on Twitter and even have the option to take a pic from the app. But I seldom post or tweet a pic so these differences doesn’t matter to me.
- Profile view feature – Tweeties shows whether a tweep is following you back or not when you view his/her profile. Twimgo doesn’t. Sometimes I’d like to know if someone I follow is following me back so Tweeties wins in this functionality.
I hope I didn’t miss something here but if I did I’d be glad to hear it from you. Surely, I will be missing these apps when I change my phone with one that runs a different mobile OS. But for now it’s just so good to stick with Twimgo and Tweeties.
