The relaunch of excellent iPhone app Tweetie 2 as the official Twitter client for Apple's smartphone might seem to have killed off any chance that new Twitter apps can make a big impact.
However, impressive though the official app is, there's a distinct lack of cute cartoon cats in it. For shame. Thankfully, Hello Kitty on Tappit has stepped into the breach.
It's a basic Twitter client with the usual tweet and reweet features, along with location, search and the option to log in with multiple accounts.
More importantly for fans of Sanrio's cute kitten character, the app comes with three Hello Kitty skins, and the option to embed 40 'deco-images' in your tweets. Other people using the app will see them alongside your tweets, while everyone else will see a link to the pic.
Worth £2.39? Well, it is if you're a Japanese schoolgirl.
