Tweetie 2.0 Announced, Coming Soon

Loren Brichter announced today that the next major release of Tweetie for iPhone has entered the final development stages and will soon be released. Tweetie 2.0 has been completely re-written and comes with many new features including full landscape mode, video support, drafts, TextExpander support, and more.

Other features include Address Book contact linking, advanced filtering, saved searches, URL shortening, and integration with other apps and services, including Birdhouse, Favstar.fm, Tweet Blocker, Follow Cost, Instapaper, and Twitlonger.

Another anticipated feature in Tweetie 2.0 will be an offline mode, allowing the user to read cached entries without an internet connection, as well as save drafts and use the integration with services like Instapaper, queued to be synced once the user is back online.

Loren hopes to submit Tweetie 2.0 to the App Store sometime this week. It will be compatible with iPhone OS 3.0+ and will be available for $2.99 as a new application, not an update.
