Dark and lustrous, Twitterific for iPhone serves up a glossy tweeting experience with some attractive extras. The navigation does take some getting used to and could confuse first-time users, especially those seeking buttons to retweet a message, e-mail it, or send a direct reply. These are tucked away within a separate menu (represented by an asterisk) that lights up when you tap a tweet. Like many others in the impacted field of Twitter apps, Twitterific integrates location-awareness and photo uploads, URL shortening, and support for multiple accounts.
As a matter of course, Twiterrific makes public timelines and trends available, offers a translation feature, and has an optional configuration for southpaws. The free version inserts ads into the timeline, but so far unobtrusively.
