[prMac.com] Albuquerque, NM - Stone Design aka Big Stone Phone today released a free upgrade to its top-selling iPhone Twitter client Twittelator Pro. Twittelator Pro was recently featured at the top of the Summer's Hottest iPhone Apps in an Apple/AT&T full page ad in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times and USA Today, and runs on all models of the iPhone and iPod Touch.
"We've broken into some new territory with tweetable themes" said Stone Design CEO Andrew Stone, @twittelator. "Users can unleash their artistic abilities and create literally billions of different themes to suit their taste and mood, and with one tap, share the theme with their friends. Friends will see the theme in it's full glory in their timeline and can install it with one tap."
V3.2 introduces the ability to upload your photos directly to your own WordPress site when you install the free TweetPress Plug-In, and to claim your own shortened links produced by bit.ly.
"TweetPress is the Wordpress Plug-In that gives you total control and ownership of the photos you post to Twitter, sending traffic back to your own blog, instead of a third party site", said Brandon Trebitowski, software developer, "You can even set it up to allow friends and colleagues to post their photos and messages too." Twittelator Pro is the first to take advantage of this ability to post photos directly to your own blog or any page in your blog. Get the TweetPress PlugIn for WordPress!
