Description

Birdhouse is a notepad for Twitter.

It's a simple, well-designed app for capturing your ideas, saving them for later, and publishing when ready.

Birdhouse won't replace your favorite Twitter client, it'll add to it. Continue using your favorite Twitter client for keeping up with your friends. When you think of something to write that you don't want to post right away, Birdhouse is the perfect place to put it.

FEATURES

• Quickly jot down your ideas, just like in Notes.

• Count down to 140 characters, just like in Twitter.

• Save as many drafts as you want, revisit them later.

• Save and publish from multiple Twitter accounts.

• Capture your ideas offline, even in Airplane mode.

• Rate drafts with stars and sort by best or by latest.

• Unpublish the bad ones just as easily.

• Back up everything through email.

Needs URL shortener

:
If Birdhouse is going to help me count characters, it needs a built-in URL shortener or, at the very least, a feature that allows me to pass the draft to my Twitter client to use the client's shortener. I know it's basically for storing and tweaking "humor" tweets that may not necessarily link to anything, but for the price and for 5 stars, it needs more functionality.

2/5 stars

We Are At iOS 4 already

:
Loved this app in the beginning but the developers seem not to want to upgrade it with more features. For instance landscape typing? It would also be most excellent with Facebook integration.

The app in general is nice. Layout good, the icon meets with an Apple snobs approval, it has some use, but it is lagging behind. FOr me Simplenote has more use for the similar function (minus the posting to twitter), but at least I can store my tweets and have some of the functions that make it more useful.

Birdhouse has long since been removed from my iPhone, but I still hope that an update comes that will bring it back to useful for me.

2/5 stars

Do not buy until developer commits to updating

:
I love the idea of this app, but it hasn't even been updated for landscape typing.

You heard me right: no landscape typing.

I talked to the developer several months ago, and he responded that that is the most requested feature. But it is not here. He also has no plans to add Facebook or Ping.fm support.

I still like being able to sort updates by star rating, but most of what this app does can now be done in the official (and free) Twitter app. Don't reward developer laziness.
