While the app has been visible in the Apple iTunes App store since yesterday, the new Twitter for iPhone app, which is labeled version 3.0 in a nod to the Tweetie 2.0 app it replaces, is now available for download. The app doesn't offer any significant improvements in features or design over the last version of Tweetie. Search has been improved, and now displays Top Tweets, as well as Twitter users, in the search results. The app also now lets users browser Twitter without signing into an account, or you can create an account directly from the Twitter app. Unlike Tweetie 2, Twitter for iPhone is a free download. Tweetie users will find their app replaced with the new version after an app update.

Really happy they didn't dumb it down to bring it on par with the Android version

Tweetie has always been the poster child for mobile app excellence and like it or not has been one of the applications people point to as the iPhone's platform superiority. (Seesmic and Twitdroid are garbage by comparison.)

I'm glad Twitter didn't "dumb it down" to bring it on par with the Android version for a more "consistent user experience."
I just wish they had "RT with comments" as an option like Echofon does.
So now, how do you reply to someone message while still including their original comment in the tweet??
Echofon makes it so easy, I'm not sure I'll be switching yet.
