Tweetdeck for iPhone to reach end of life on May 7

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Twitter on Friday finally put a date on the upcoming TweetDeck closure, announcing that all iPhone, Android and AIR apps will be pulled on May 7, while Facebook integration is scheduled to end on the same day.

TweetDeck
TweetDeck for iPhone.


As reported in early March, Twitter will be killing off TweetDeck for Apple's iOS, Google's Android and Adobe's AIR mobile platforms, as well as Facebook assets, in the coming weeks, and according to an announcement on the company's blog, the discontinuation will take place on May 7.

Previously, the microblogging giant didn't put a specific date to the shutdown, saying to expect the move in "early May."

Twitter will be focusing on web-only development for TweetDeck, and expects to keep the dedicated Web and Google Chrome apps versions alive. In addition, desktop versions of the app will still be available to Mac and PC users and should receive regular updates.

Twitter purchased the real-time conversation tracking app in 2011 for $40 million and has since groomed it into a powerful web app.

A €40 distraction. Was a nice payout for that co.

1. That phone must have the best possible reception ever.

2. Don't think I've ever seen a window popup on an iPhone. And what a poor implementation it is!

I actually like Tweetdeck on my iPhone, and I've put off finding another solution because of that. It gives me a quick, clean glance at my timeline, plus custom easy-to-view lists like mentions and a search to see when someone tweets a link from my blog. Twitter actually turned it into a pretty good app. Any suggestions on a good replacement app?
