[prMac.com] Based in Singapore - Sherwin Sowy has introduced Twictures 1.1, a new iPhone app that lets people instantly view pictures, photos and videos from their twitter stream in a gorgeous, slick interface. Each photo or video is shown on the screen, and users can easily reply, retweet or favorite each post. Tapping the photo or video will also let the user view them in full screen.
Following the success of his other applications such as Profiler, an application that lets you easily search for people across twitter, Facebook, whitepages and google, Sherwin Sowy has created a new way of viewing media from twitter.
Twictures shows photos and videos in a continuous stream for easy viewing. All the user needs to do is swipe up to reveal the next post, and a simple tap will play any video. Currently, Twictures supports photos from instagram, twitpic, plixi, lockerz, imgurl, posterous and yfrog and videos from YouTube. The developer promises to add support for more photo and video sites in later updates, all for the affordable price of just US$0.99.
Another feature of Twictures is that it lets users share their own photos to twitter. Before uploading the photos, it lets users apply various effects and filters to each photo - sepia, grayscale, brightness, contrast and other lomo effects. Users can apply multiple effects to the same photo, making each creation unique!
"There are a lot of fantastic photos and videos posted on twitter every second. Unfortunately, because of the way most iPhone twitter applications display posts, a user has to tap each link to view the photo or video. Twictures makes viewing photos and videos an easy, enjoyable experience," said Sherwin Sowy.
