Needs URL shortener
fringes & Q M write:
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.
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.
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.
