Video and screenshots: Trill on the Nokia N8 – Excellent Twitter App for S60 and Symbian^3 – Available for FREE at Ovi Store

Twitter user? Yes? Then here’s another great alternative to the almighty Gravity. This folks is “Trill”. It’s FREE at the Ovi Store and offers quite a lot of functionality and looks great too. (yup FREE. Load on as many handsets as you like at no charge)

  • Fast start up. Loads all previous tweets.
  • Very fast at fetching tweets, even on slow connection. 3G not needed (as was the case with Tweetgo.net being entirely browser based)
  • Swipe left/right to navigate between timeline, replies, DMs etc
  • Big finger friendly buttons when tapping tweets
  • Search within app
  • Tag links/search
  • Cute little bird animations during search load (and initial twitter connection)
  • Profile viewer
  • Trending topics viewer

It’s available to download for FREE for S60 and Symbian^3 from the Ovi Store.

It’s a fantastic twitter client, especially for the price (FREE). It’s not as functional as gravity (e.g. no direct picture upload, though I upload mainly from gallery) but you certainly get a lot out of it for nothing. The only main things I miss are:

  • crucial KINETIC scrolling. It’s non existent here.
  • “In Reply To” function to see the context of a tweet

Otherwise. Highly recommended download.

Here’s a screenshot run through including some bits not shown in the video.

First Log In requires signing in to twitter via the browser.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Trill then starts to fetch your tweets. You’re presented with this screen. At the top you have the label and you can click to switch screens or swipe across the page. There’s also the icon to write new tweets.

 

Tapping on a tweet gives you a host of options via finger friendly and colourful icons

Options bar – with Go To you can quickly switch between timeline/replies/DM etc, write new tweets, search etc

When you search you get this cute little bird chirping away. It’s a nice distraction from the otherwise blank load.

And search results are all within the app. You can save searches and next time you search, that’s listed below the search bar.

This is cool. Not shown in video. When you click someone’s tweets and they have tags, you can browse those tags.

Another thing missed in the video is profile viewing. Here’s Jon Choo. You can scroll down and the page will fill with just their tweets.

Final thing missed in video was opening links. This is very nice, you have the option to view the Full or Mobile Adapted version. This could then be saved in settings for default action

All of this of course works in Landscape

    Looks a lot like it was written in Java. The UI design isn’t particularly nice either and scrolling seems not very responsive to me.
    However, I guess one shouldn’t look a gift horse in the mouth 😉
