Tweex 2.0 is released!

by rich on June 8, 2011

Tweex 2.0 has now been released!

What’s New:

  • TweeVR mode! One of the most requested features has finally been released. TweeVR mode allows you to “wind the tweet clock back” to replay Tweets in “real-time” while watching a recorded show! For example, if you record “The Voice” on your PVR, then watch it a couple of hours or days later, simply enter the time the show originally aired into Tweex using the handy time travel control panel. Now, Tweex will play back the tweets as though you’re watching the show live! And of course, choosing “The Voice” in our “What’s Hot” list will automatically show you the best # and @ tags to use for your show! TweeVR mode is great for any show you’ve PVR’d, especially sports events. Its great for avoiding spoilers.
  • Additional Timelines: We’ve added the rest of the standard Twitter timelines: My Tweets, Favorites, @Mentions, Retweets, Lists, etc.
  • Improved Filtering: We’ve improved on the filtering added in Tweex 1.1. Use Filtering by clicking on the downward pointing arrows icon in the upper right corner of the screen. Filtering gets rid of all the short, annoying, useless “Me Too” tweets, but makes sure to retain the tweets you really want to see.
  • Conversation View: Now, easily view a whole Twitter conversation. Click on the “Conversation Bubble” to see all the tweets you’re reading in order. Don’t get left out of the conversation!
  • URL Shortening: Easily shorten URL’s in your tweets
  • Improved Profile View adds features, and full size profile image view.

Why use Tweex to tweet about the Oscars?

by Sarah on February 27, 2011

To begin, Tweex is an iPad app that is designed specifically for tweeting during LIVE TV. The super smart tech geeks that built the app and the socially savvy twitter users that helped design the app thought about everything that the ultimate twitter app for TV would have. They took all their pet peeves and cool ideas on using twitter while watching TV and created Tweex to eliminate the tediousness and leverage the coolness. So don’t fumble with other twitter clients when watching the Oscars tonight when you can use Tweex to:

1. See what people are saying about the show and filter out lame tweets (“Cool”, “I love the Oscars”) and excessive RTs:

2. Easily tweet about the Oscars: (All you have to do is tap on a tag to add it to your tweet!)

3. Easily identify the most popular tweets.

Oh and this is not all Tweex has to offer…there are tons more cool features that will take your Oscars twitter experience from mild to smokin’ hot. If you’re interested in learning more check out this video that shows you exactly what the app does.

See you tonight in the Oscar Twitter Stream! If you think you want to give Tweex a try you can download it for free in the app store!
