Keeping up with the news can be a tad bit difficult if you have lots of chores to tackle everyday and do not have your radio or TV with you. Besides, sites such as Twitter often break news sooner than your TV. Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a way you could keep up with the latest tweets in your timeline while tackling other chores? That’s what Tweetboard is all about. It turns your iPhone into a news tracker, using tweets from your tweeps to keep you up-to-date with the latest developments.
Tweetboard is pretty simple to use. You can keep track of your timeline and mentions on your iPhone. Like a story? Just retweet it or mark it as your favorite. The interface is perfect for those of you who want to just dock your iPhone and use it as your news tracker at the place of your work.
Tweetboard has a lot of potential. It would be awesome to have a way to track certain hashes and keywords. A direct-message, reply notifier would be very useful too. The concept is very interesting though. Who needs TV news when you have Twitter?
