Though we may be waiting some time for an official Twitter option for iPad, fans of Twitterrific for iPhone and Mac will be pleased to hear that the iPad version leads the current pack of third-party options. Twitterrific's grey-heavy interface is simple and clean-looking, letting you clearly scroll through the tweets of those you follow and take in Twitter's trending topics all on the same page (in landscape orientation).
Use Twitterrific in landscape mode to see trends and swap between categories.
Ease of use and speed are both highlights of The Iconfactory's app, which quickly loads URLs using the in-app browser, plus uses unobtrusive popover menus to display images and user profiles with a single touch. Twitterrific's initial iPad debut was a little short on features, but subsequent updates have brought the ability to upload photos and videos to various services, among other tweaks and fixes.
Twitterrific is a free, ad-supported download, but a $4.99 in-app purchase is available to strip away the ads and unlock the ability to save multiple Twitter accounts. The free version should be fine for most folks, but if you're a power user or have multiple Twitter users in the house -- or simply want to support a well-produced app -- it's worth dropping a few bucks to upgrade.
