Goose Apps Releases Lounge 1.0

Posted March 19, 2009 at 11:49am by iClarified
Goose Apps has introduced their first iPhone product, Lounge, taking the social networking environment of "Twitter" and extending it into a versatile, flexible, yet easily navigated user experience. A beta Mac desktop client is also available for download. Lounge is the place to meet your Twitter friends, wherever you are.

Lounge for iPhone brings a broad range of advanced social networking functionality to the iPhone, a rapidly increasing activity needing a refined and optimized application. The use of Twitter clients on mobile devices is on the rise, and Goose Apps has focused their engineering efforts on creating a unified and extensible platform for the iPhone community, making Lounge the "one-stop-shop" for staying in sync with your Twitter community. The same aspects are mirrored in the beta Mac client as well.

Lounge allows you to not only write and read your public and private tweets as well as direct messages, it enables you to compose and view tweets by category as well. You can quickly create your own "smart categories" using Twitter's own search syntax, much like "Smart Playlists" in iTunes or "Smart Mailboxes" in Mail on OS X. Staying current with tweets between a specific set of users, or posts using any combination of words, or even a combination of both, is just a tap away. If you can search for it using Twitter, you can save those searches in Lounge.

Lounge lets you easily browse tweet details, such as linked web sites, referenced users, hashtags, and provides access to the author's profile date, such as web sites, friends, tweets, all on the fly within the application. Thanks to Lounge's thoroughly consistent sliding lists design, recursion is virtually unlimited - just dive into a chain of tweets and users and zoom back out.

Another welcome feature of Lounge is landscape orientation. With the turn of your iPhone, you're operating in landscape mode, where a wider keyboard enables you to enter your both tweets and direct messages, a feature many users of the iPhone have voiced an interested in since the launch of the device. Landscape mode is not just for text entry either, but for browsing tweets as well.

Setting up and using Lounge is simple and straight forward. You can manage your friends lists and access user profiles by sliding them out - just like in tweet detail view. You can use multiple accounts and switch with just one tap. And to top it off, you can even choose your favorite interface style and size.

This is only the beginning for Lounge. A Mac Lounge client beta is available for download today as well, and Goose Apps has plans to augment Twitter with free services, integrating them seemlessly in their Lounge clients.

Pricing and Availability:
Lounge is available immediately for only 1.99 (USD) through the iPhone App Store. The beta release of their Mac desktop client is available for free download.
