Twittelator's edge among the current crop of unofficial iPad Twitter apps is its large feature set. While most users will be fine with the standard array of tweets from those you follow, mentions, and direct messages, Twittelator also includes a large number of themed channels (like sports and politics), which spotlight top tweeters in several smaller categories. You can also set up your own lists of Twitter users, should you want to create your own personal channels instead of reading one big feed.
You can set a custom background using any saved images on the iPad.
On top of offering a larger chunk of the overall Twitter experience, Twittelator also includes some unique UI touches, such as customizable backgrounds, tweeted images showing up directly in the feed, and a swipe-to-post feature that prevents you from accidentally tapping "send" while typing out a tweet.
Channels let you find top tweeters in various categories.
It's a fairly robust app with a distinctive look, but we can't help but feel a little underwhelmed by its use of the iPad screen. In portrait orientation, the tweets only take up a portion of the total space, while the landscape view relegates friends' tweets to a small box on the left. And without a free option at this time, we have to believe casual tweeters will flock to other options first.
