  • Jailbreak Dev Releases UberSocial iPhone App


    With few exceptions, most social networking apps that piggyback on Twitter's framework fail to deliver anything worth downloading, let alone uttering a word about to another social networking fanatic. Fortunately, such is not the case with UberSocial, a sweet new social networking app that comes to us from Tunji Afonja, a jailbreak developer whose work is hosted on ModMyi.

    Promising a unique Twitter experience that actually is unique, the free iPhone app enables you to follow the people that you actually possess some remote interest in. Best of all, even if you are a professed Twitter hater, you can still enjoy UberSocial. Why? Because you don't have to be on Twitter yourself to keep tabs on those who are.

    UberSocial lets you stay in touch with the people and information that matter to you, whether you have a Twitter account or not. From your own timeline to the world’s most intriguing entertainers, sports icons, political players, news sources and much more, the world’s best tweets are now at your finger tips.


    Twitter junkies will especially appreciate the app's attention to letting users follow friends and fascinating figures in the "coolest and most enjoyable manner" possible, like via the Tab View, Top Tweets, Filters, Slide Down to Tweet, etc. With poor navigation proving a repeated sticking point for many Twitter users (and folks who refuse to use Twitter for this reason) UberSocial's Navigation Evolved rubric will be a sight for sore eyes, particularly with regard to the app's new approach to refreshing your timeline and presenting who is saying what and when. You can even go to the top or bottom of a tweet stream with a single touch.

    UberSocial - an app definitely worth checking out - is available now for download from the App Store.

      Works for me... very pretty UI, but a bit much for how I use Twitter. If it included FB (like SocialScope does on BBs), as well as a few Twitter tweaks, it would be outstanding. Then again, I'm not a power Facebook user either.

      I give it 3.5/5 stars... with potential.

      Eh, ill rate it 3 stars. The interface is nice.. Background and all. I dont like that it doesnt show any badges if u have mentioned in a tweet like osfoora does. Also u cant edit your profile nor twitcon. OSFOORA is still the best twitter app hands down..

      Osfoora also cost 2.99 cents compared to the this one and a few others that are free.
      This has a nice user interface and does everything i need it to do badges would be nice but that maybe an update they decide to do later

      Am I living in a parallel dimension or something ?

      In My Timeline, the first two lines overlap.
      How is that not an issue for at least 30 posters in this thread ?

      I like the categories and layout - but the official Twitter app seems funkier.

      It'll get me looking at celeb Tweeters, which the official app never did.

      Will probably use Twitter for my timeline and Uber for investigating Zeleb Twats.

      I actually prefer TweetLogix (has MUTE) and TweetList (less crashing) to Osfoora (sp?) At some point you can only do so much with a twitter app before you start making it more complicated than it needs or was intended to be.

      If UberTwitter does a few updates, it'll probably be the best. The native client is arguably the best all-around one, though this could have serious potential.

      It's just a bit too much flash and not enough essential substance if you just tweet here and there and want to know if you have any replies/mentions or direct messages.

      Meh... Pretty interface, but functionally needs improvement. The free version doesn't auto-update when your first open the app, and worse, I have the scroll (pull) down and then click the circle at the the top to get it to refresh. WTF, now I have to do 2 actions for refresh instead of one (like the real twitter app and the Uber video shows). Guess that's a feature in the 'for-pay' version. Uninstall!!

      WE do not allow cracked apps or warez conversations on MMi. By behaving like this can lead to being banned. Please take note of this!

      There isn't a paid version as far as I know.

      I think he's mistaking the in-app purchase for a paid version. All that does is remove the ads.

      This app is pretty good compared to the regular twitter app, at least for my twitter habits.

      They dev pushed an update for this as well. It's now called 'ubercurrent'.

      Only problem I have is it keeps crashing and won't hold my log in info. It sucks because I realy want it to work. It worked fine on my 4.1 phone. The one I have now is 4.0.1 and I don't want to update until I get home in a few months.

      Has anyone else had issues with this app on 4.0.x?
