Graphite for Twitter is a Twitter client and is released by dots and lines.
“Graphite is a Twitter experience designed for webOS tablet–HP Touchpad. It retains the unique webOS experience through sliding UI elements and the use of Cards for managing multiple accounts and composition screens along with Just Type integration for New Tweets & Twitter Search. Oh, and it is Carbon on steroids!”
This application has been long awaited by webOS users as this team designed the much loved Carbon twitter client. If you are a fan of Carbon then you will not be disappointed.
When you first open the applications you are asked to set up an account, this process is painless as you authorise and link your Twitter accounts with the application.
When you twitter account first load it pulls back the last 100 tweets. You can set the refresh rate for looking for new tweets in the preference or you can just drag the column to trigger the refresh.
Mentions and direct messages can be accessed with a simple swipe or two. Links can be viewed inside the application, or you can select it to open the browser, depending on your preference.
The application is as fully featured as a third party twitter client can be.
The user interface is well designed making it easy to navigate and find the information you want. It also supports lists (for reading), which other applications completely ignore
On the upside:
- Good user interface.
- Lots of Options.
- Supports multiple accounts.
On the downside:
- Would have liked a theme option as white text on black background is not a favorite of mine.
Overall, this is the best twitter client I have used on any platform, not just the Touchpad. It puts even the official Twitter client on iPad in the shade. It works really well and does not have the navigation issues of the other twitter clients. If you use Twitter then you need this application.
