Free iPad Version

Echofon Pro has been a universal app (available on iPhone and iPad) for a while now. Today, users of the free version of Echofon can also enjoy using Echofon on their iPad!

User Streams on iPad

Users of Echofon for Mac have been enjoying user streams. Now this great feature is available on Echofon for iPad. Just connect to a WiFi network and the tweets start streaming. New tweets will show up instantly, no need to reload.

Timeline Photo and Video Preview

Echofon on your iPhone now has photo and video previews in the timeline. This makes it even easier to see which tweets have media attached, and access it in one tap.


We've added a mute feature which lets you squelch users, clients or hashtags that you'd rather not see in your timeline. Just go to Menu > Account Options > Mute and add as many filters as you like.

Instant Push Notifications and Social Event Notifications

Push notifications were previously limited to mentions, replies and direct messages. Over the next couple weeks, all Echofon users will start to receive instant push notifications for all direct messages, mentions, replies, favorites and followings.
