iPhone finally gets its own version of UberTwitter app

BlackBerry users know all about UberTwitter. Since its release, it’s been one of the most popular Twitter apps for RIM’s smartphones, even after the launch of the official Twitter client.

Now it’s on iPhone. It does all the basics you’d expect, allowing you to tweet, see and respond to mentions and direct messages, and search Twitter for trends and keywords.

However, the most interesting feature is something called UberView, which brings up links as previews within a separate pane – a similar idea is used in Twitter’s own iPad app. You can turn your iPhone into landscape mode to make this more appealing in UberTwitter.

Will this be enough to tempt people away from the excellent official iPhone Twitter app though? We sense it depends on what kind of power features UberTwitter rolls out in the coming months over and above those available in the official client.
