Review: Easily manage your Twitter account with Echofon for Twitter

Manage your tweets from your iOS device with ease.

There are a lot of Twitter clients for iOS. Integrating dozens of different features, these tools allow you to interact with and manage your tweets quickly and easily across multiple devices. But there are issues. Viewing images and videos often sends you to other apps, notifications don't always work properly, and Twitter options may be buried a few menus deep. That's why the well-constructed Echofon for Twitter is such a welcome addition to the field.

By no means a perfect Twitter app, Echofon for Twitter still manages to be one of the better options on the App Store. To start, it allows you to quickly and easily cycle between multiple Twitter accounts. It also syncs your tweets across all devices, so if you read it on one device you will know you've read it on another. Plus it has a sleep timer so your phone won't buzz off the nightstand while you are asleep. The interface is intuitive and clean, and on the iPad especially, it looks exceptional. You'll wonder why you were using another Twitter client until now.

The free version of Echofon for Twitter is ad supported and like most ad-supported apps, the banner can be intrusive and eat up a lot of screen space. That said, every single feature is included with the app and it runs smoothly even in trial mode. This is a great app and a perfect companion for anyone that uses Twitter religiously on the go.
