Tweetbot may have been the best Twitter client in its day, but new times are ahead. Twitter’s own official app may be more popular than the smaller third-party alternatives, yet developers keep releasing new ones every few months.

To evaluate its potential as a competitor to the great Tweetbot, I downloaded Twitterrific on its release day and have been using it frequently since. Keep reading for a full look at the app.

And so we come to the crux, how would you go about gathering new cool apps when you get a new device? How do you find those little app gems that “make” a device for some people? Let’s see how I did it.
