There are a lot of Twitter apps for iPhone, and I’ve played around with many of them over the years. But I can confidently say that Maha is one that immediately stands out from the rest of the crowd.

The main reason for this is admittedly that its user interface is particularly stylish and slick. It has a very clean look, which makes using Twitter on a mobile device as easy and seamless as possible. The overall style of the UI kind of reminds me of the Windows Phone 7 interface, though Maha’s style is still somehow distinctly its own. And not only is the interface awesome on default settings, you can tweak the color scheme however you like. Very cool.

Of course, for a Twitter app to be good it must do more than blow you away with its user interface (but, really, this is a big part of it). It has to have functionality and options that are equally great. You’ll find that Maha succeeds here as well. The app is blazing fast and smooth. And as for options, you can tweak the auto refresh setting, upload multiple images at a time, autosave Twitter drafts, geotag your tweets and more. Also, the app’s web browser stands out – it’s well-designed and fast.

The main downside to Maha is that it cost $2.99. I belong to the population of Twitter users that feels paying for a Twitter app is particularly painful and unnecessary – especially when there are so many suitable free options for those wanting to Tweet on their phones. For this reason, it’s hard for me to call Maha a must-have.

That said, it’s hard not to be impressed with Maha. It’s a beautiful Twitter app, really, and if you can easily part with $2.99, then you’ll definitely enjoy using it.
