We’re both avid Twitter users and we found that none of the available clients for iPhone were really suited for an efficient on-the-go experience.
So we made our own and we called it Reportage.
Reportage works with the way you already tend to use Twitter; by firstly, scanning for the avatar of people you care most about and then browsing for second tier interest people.
We’ve leveraged the ability of your brain to quickly recognize faces, especially on precious mobile screen real estate that’s unsuited to scanning a long timeline.
Reportage focuses on people. Instead of having a single timeline, Reportage shows you the most recent activity in a wall of avatars. Then, you can cherry pick who you want to listen to first — pretty much like with the tuner of a radio receiver.
As you use it on-the-go, this snapshot of your network will dramatically improve your user experience, reduce the noise and make the most of Twitter.
In addition, Reportage lets you group your “stars” so you can quickly read and send messages to your favorite friends; follow aggregated conversations between people you follow; and discover new people with a location-based search.
Reportage is also a fully-featured client and so, you can find everything you need to interact with your network (e.g., direct messages, mentions, post photos).
We just submitted Reportage to the App Store and we expect it to be ready for sale pretty soon for $2.99.
UPDATE: Reportage is now ready for sale on the App Store.
