Tweetie gets an update.. Tweetie 2

I like Tweetie.  I wrote an article for iphonelife on iphone twitter apps (it not out yet, but here is a short version) and of all the apps I tried, I used tweetie the most when I’m not using twittFilter. (twittFilter is a web app and my fave given that I wrote it).  So Gizmodo, which seem to be the site to check now a days, broke a story on tweetie 2 which seems bring a new functionality to twitter iphone apps; offline twitter access.  There are some other improvements, but its the offline that sounds interesting.  I will wait for a few more reviews and update.

Tweetie is not in the app store yet, but should be in a week or so.  It will go for $2.99 and no free upgrades.
