About

 

I created this app for a few reasons, the primary one being my inability to use my first gen iPad that was lying around and almost obsolete. Secondarily, I wanted to learn app development, and combining my love for twitter as a fleeting medium of keeping up with the current, I thought of this app.

I learnt a lot from this exercise, and hopefully the app will prove useful for you. Truly thankful for the entire stackoverflow community, without which, this app was impossible. Also thankful for innumerable other developers, who post snippets and workarounds on blogs, and post their work on github - especially Olivier Halligon of AliSoftware for his awesome OHAttributedLabel.
Thanks to Leroy Fasenul for his permission to let me use his gif in the app.

Below are some open source projects I used either in the app or for reference.
