If you’re not already using a twitter client that adds or uploads to TwitPic, or you’re using a client that doesn’t give you the option to choose your own photo uploading service, or if you seem to send a TwitPic along with every one of your tweets and are just looking to make life simpler for this purpose, I recommend you check out TwitPic Uploader for iPhone.
While most clients allow you to choose TwitPic as your photo host, and even upload and give you the TwitPic url of your picture, some people might prefer to have a client that offers just that functionality and pretty much nothing else. For them, this app is ideal, though admittedly it won’t be for most.
The TwitPic Uploader (dispite using the logo and name of the popular Twitter Photo site) is not directly affiliated with TwitPic, it’s simply created by someone who wanted a simple Twitter App for one purpose: Tweeting or Uploading Pics.
While all the other clients will likely make you tweet any attached photos you add to the app, by way of creating a new Tweet, you can use TwitPic Uploader if you’re just looking to send along some photos to your TwitPic account without tweeting them. You do still have the option to tweet as well.
I’m not going to harp on about what this app doesn’t do in as a Twitter Client, as I’m sure that was not the direct intention of the creator. What this app does offer is the ability to upload to TwitPic and then send along the pic/url twitter or copy the url. You can also go directly to your own TwitPic Album page.
There are a couple drawbacks to this app that I wish were better handled. The first and most obvious is that while this app does offer the ability to use multiple Twitter logins, you cannot send a single tweet or upload to multiple accounts. This option as well as the very limited settings that the app does offer are only available to change or edit in Landscape mode, leaving me to only learn about them until I read the lengthy description on the App Store itself.
While it might not be the most feature-rich app, for people who are keeping online albums or use TwitPic daily, this may very well be a useful app for them. Or if you want to upload several different pictures to include in one tweet, this would be the best tool as well. Luckily there is a free version to check out before dishing the $1.99 for the full.
