Echofon for iPhone, version 3.0.5 is now available in the App Store. This is a small update with nice features we think you’ll love.
New Location Sharing Method
You’ve been able to attach your current location to tweets since version 3.0 of Echofon for iPhone, but it was always an exact location. Sometimes it’s nice to let your followers know exactly where you are, but other times you don’t want to share your exact address.
Echofon now lets you choose either an exact location (coordinates), or a neighborhood/city name (place). Once you choose coordinates or place, the setting will be remembered for your next post.
So next time you are in a fun cafe, share your exact location so your friends can find it, but if you are at home, just post the city name, so you don’t end up with any unwanted visitors!
Note: The Places feature is currently only available in the United States.
Revised Profile and User Timeline Screens
We’ve returned to separated profile and user timeline screens. The organization of these two screens has been made more intuitive and it’s easier to see how many tweets a user has made.
Echofon 3.0.5 also addressed some crashing issues, and introduces optimized drawing and local cache operations.
All of us at Naan studio are excited about the iPad, We plan to start building Echofon for iPad soon!
