    Tweetbot is amazing
    Just going to say it, but Tweetbot is probably the most beautifully designed app I've ever used on an iOS device. Definitely worth the $1.99 if you're looking for a Twitter client:

    It's silly to buy a Twitter app... until now! The layout is so well thought out. It's not a universal app, but I'm just going to go ahead and use it as my default Twitter app on the iPad anyways.

    The strongest features lie in its composing, services, and navigation.

    I've got to agree; much better than the official Twitter app.

    It is pretty - almost makes me want to start tweeting - but I don't have enough interesting things to say during the day

    I bought it as well, mainly just because of all the hype.

    It is nice, though I'm not sure if I'm finding it as incredible useful as some. The weird workaround for push notifications through boxcar is a bit offputting (I need push for a work account I run) and so far I've only really found swipe for conversations and related tweets really useful.

    How is it so much different than the free official app? Seems a bit crazy to buy something that is free already but just has a different skin.

    It certainly is a very attractive app. However, I keep finding myself returning to the official Twitter app.

    Curious what you like better about the official app?

    I tried it out, and while it's the best looking Twitter app, I just find myself coming back to Echofon.

    The MAIN reason why, quoted RT's.. I HATE quoted RT's.. Give me the RT with comment any day over that.

    I LOVE the Official Twitter app because of it's simple, yet elegant design, but I couldn't get past the quoted RT.

    Echofon looks similar to the Official App, but it's got the RT with comment option.

    Tweetbot is amazing and it may be something I switch to once it matures a bit more. I'd like a little bit more in terms of account options and RT style.

    I've never really considered a third party app for Twitter but this really looks good. I'm not sure why I've only used the official one because I know that others offer extra features. I guess I'm just comfortable with what I know.

    Can someone explain the whole push thing with TweetBot? Thanks

    It's for alerts to tell you that you have a reply, etc.

    Personally I've always found them annoying and even had them turned off in the official client when I used it.

    IMHO, if you use Twitter at all frequently, when you're in the app, it has visual notification that you have new @replies. I don't really know why I would need it to pop up boxes at me or badge the app. If you use Twitter that infrequently, then the @replies are probably not important anyway.
