Twitter is a social communication service that mainly revolves around your activities, updates, status and even your moods when you are mobile or sitting at home.
Twitter is a social communication service that mainly revolves around your activities, updates, status and even your moods when you are mobile or sitting at home. This mobile focused service is the ultimate way to keep connected with your friends, colleagues, families and even favorite Rockstars in real time through what is now known as пїЅ?TweetsвЂ™ вЂ“ 160 characters based SMS like short status updates and micro posts.
If you have never heard about Twitter then I will request you to immediately sign up for it and then come back to this post. Let me assure you: Twitter is the perfect service to bind your real time mobile life with all your social profiles centrally (like in Facebook, MySpace, OVI etc.) with the help of your mobile phone via Twitter.
If you are a proud owner of a Nokia symbian OS mobile phone and you have already been using Twitter from your phone with the help of TwitterвЂ™s default java client for mobile, then this post is what you are looking for!
While Twitter already had a wide range of apps for Blackberry Phones, PDAs and other smartphones (mainly developed by 3rd party developers) it was only a few months back that they created a dedicated Java client for the Symbian OS mobile phone users. However, almost all of us who have downloaded that app from the official Twitter website has to agree that the official Twitter client for Symbian phones literally sucks and when compared to what I am about to feature here today!
All the applications for Twitter listed should use your Mobile Internet or GPRS/HSDPA/3G etc. for sending out the tweets or SMS, thus they all will replace the default SMS mode with a much more cost effective yet feature rich solution as the amount of data transferred via GPRS should cost less than 70% of the price per SMS/tweets.
Mobileways Gravity is one of the most fantastic mobile twitter clients that I have ever tested out so far. It is one of the most extensive Twitter apps for Nokia and I can honestly say that not even any Twitter clients for Blackberry or other PDA platforms can match it.
Mobileways Gravity is a native mobile app for symbian mobile phones of series 60 Nokia which offers extensive lists of options to you for keeping yourself connected! Mobileways Twitter application for Nokia is developed by the same folks who brought Wireless IRC to Symbian OS 8 edition phones for the first time. This intuitive and highly customizable mobile phone application offers integration with several other WEB 2.0 social networks and communities to further make your twitter experience unique!
Gravity for Nokia symbian 3rd edition and 5th edition have the following options that I think are the most important to determine its value to any Twitter user:
1. Twitter integration is truly extensive with super fast response time during any operation that you make through this application to your Twitter account.
2. It supports the recently added Twitter functions like вЂњIntroduceвЂќ, Blacklists etc.
3. It also supports cross functional updates, meaning, you can easily set up Twitter to automatically post your status or tweets as the default status message in your Facebook profile every time you post them at Twitter.
4. Supports full screen mode on both the Feature Pack 5 and Feature Pack 3 based symbian mobile phones of Nokia. Supports background runs and updates on both S60 version 5th edition and 3rd edition phones.
5. Gravity is quite visually rich with a nice glossy mobile 2.0 -ish interface that skins it all over and this makes this app stand out from the other ugly mobile Twitter clients. It is much less cluttered compared to other similar apps and the default view is really quite pretty with smooth anti aliasing for any adjustable font size.
6. With this symbian application installed on your Series 60 device you will be able to tweet, re-tweet, reply your , follow , un-follow, search, maintain favorites and also post status updates on the go.
7. Gravity lets you manage/create multiple tabs which can be assigned to customized groups that you can create (just like in the original desktop version of Twitter) straight from your mobile.
8. Seamless integration with many other 3rd party add-on like TwitPic, Mobipicture, Posterous, Twitgoo etc which lets you post images and live links and other multimedia in any of your tweets straight from your handset. You can set up tabs dedicated to each of the 3rd party Twitter services or simply integrate their features through a right click based integrated menu.

9. Being a native mobile app by build, Gravity for Symbian is a powerful application for Symbian OS. It will let you change your profile backgrounds, profile information, post rich images, customize your group views, see your followerвЂ™s history, switch tabs/windows instantly etc. with the help of gesture based movements (if your phone supports it) or touchscreen controls or simply by pressing a keypad button.
10. With multiple keypad layouts available the Gravity Mobile Twitter client is easy to use and manage. It comes with a truly jam packed set of keyboard layouts (landscape and portrait) for different screen resolutions like that of Nokia E-Series and N-Series like E71, Nokia N97, N95, Nokia E71, N79, N95 8GB, NokiaN96 etc.
11. Supports advanced features like Blacklisting of specific kind of tweets or blacklisting a particular follower. It also includes the newly integrated вЂњIntroduceвЂќ feature of Twitter along with all the other SMS based commands.
