May 28, 2012 in Social Networking
[prMac.com] Jersey, United Kingdom - Independent developer Juye Symons today is pleased to announce Tweetstreams 1.1 for iOS, his advanced, customizable, real-time Twitter client/monitor that allows the user to establish full control over all incoming tweets. Featuring an uncluttered, minimalist interface, the app includes various filtering options that allow real-time monitoring of brands, keywords, current trends, individual accounts, groups of people and more. The app supports all existing Twitter accounts and enables adjustment of the speed of streams, which is particularly valuable when monitoring busy topics.
* Real-time monitoring of multiple topics on Twitter
* Create Tweetstreams by Keyword, Trend, or People
* Filter Tweetstreams by English only and/or minimum followers
* Control the speed of incoming tweets
* Simple, attractive interface
With the Twitter explosion and the social service's incorporation directly into iOS 5, there have been more and more Twitter apps offering a variety of features. Tweetstreams' special niche is real-time monitoring of multiple topics. At launch, the app invites the user to create one of three different types of streams, based on Keywords, Trends (by country), or People.
For example, the app advises, "Enter the keywords you want to track. Use commas to separate your keywords if you want to match any keyword, or use spaces to separate keywords if you want to match all keywords." Once created, each topic in each of the three types of streams becomes a Tweetstream. The names of the Tweetstreams appear in the upper tab bar as the tweets begin scrolling down.
Extremely helpful in real-time monitoring of multiple topics, is the ability to set the app to display only English language tweets, and the continuously variable controls in Settings. The familiar blue slider, identical with those used in the Preferences in iOS 5, allows the user to control the speed of the incoming Tweetstream from very slow to very fast. At any setting, the tweets per minute will increase with the number of topics being monitored. Similarly, a slider control permits users to limit incoming tweets to those who have a following of more than one million or any number below.
"Tweetstreams is ideal for real-time monitoring of brands, keywords, current trends, individual accounts, groups of people and more," stated independent developer Juye Symons. "You can even monitor Tweetstreams that represent the intersection of multiple search terms, such as "iPad - London - Medicine."
