Netbot

I’ve written my fair share of articles for AppStorm about App.net and the clients I test out, but there’s always new ones out there that I want to try. I have yet to find the ADN client that fits every one of my needs.

But it’s wearing Tweetbot‘s clothes, and I want my ADN experience to feel visually unique from Twitter without losing the power of Tapbot’s app. In the past, I’ve tried Rivr (for iPhone), which was full of features and pleasant to look at, but after several weeks of use, it didn’t capture my attention anymore and I was back to Netbot (which also has an iPad app).

I’ve made it no secret that I’m a fan of App.net (ADN). I’ve reviewed ADN clients at iPad.AppStorm’s iPhone and Android sister sites, and I think the future of the platform is brighter than any of us might know right now. As it is though, this is a social network still in its infancy and it’s hard to find an app you’ll love using with it.

With that in mind, I thought it’d be worth taking a look at your options on the iPad platform. There’s a huge variety of interfaces available, even within the apps currently available, and you’re likely to find something you’ll fall in love with here.
