360 is a new application specifically
developed for the iPhone 3GS that enables you to visualize your
Twitter friends located in your nearby environment, thanks to a
unique Augmented Reality functionality using the iPhone camera.
Twitter 360 is one of the first iPhone applications to use
the new Twitter's Geotagging feature to geotag your tweets. Please,
note that Twitter 360 does not intend to be a fully Twitter
client, our goal is to provide a different approach to the Twitter
experience. We are already working on new ideas to be added in this
- Twitter 360 annotates your tweets with GPS location information.
Your friends can now see, via Augmented Reality, the location from
where your last tweet was posted. Geotagging is disabled by default
for all users, which means you will need to turn it on by going
"settings" section in order to use it in Twitter 360 app.
- "Latest Tweets" mode. See the latest tweets of your friends (iPhone
horizontal position), and the location from where they were posted
(iPhone vertical position) using the Augmented Reality functionality.
When a tweet is selected, a blue arrow (compass) is displayed to
show the direction and the distance to the location from where the
tweet was posted. The distance is updated in real time as you walk
in the streets.
- Touch the Star to add your best Twitter friends in your favorites.
- "Locate my Friends" mode. List of all your best friends. Twitter
360 lets you track geographic movements of your friends, you
can now see where are located your nearby friends via Augmented
Reality. If you want to hang out with a particular friend, use this
tool to go meet him / her. Unlike the "Latest Tweets" mode (which
is more focused on the tweets), the location of each of your friends
is calculated with the "location" field data on the Twitter
account. When a friend is selected, a blue arrow is displayed to
show the direction and the distance to the location of that friend.
The selected friend is highlighted in blue. The distance is updated
in real time as you walk in the streets.
- When you launch Twitter 360, a small bird will localize
your exact position and update the "location" field data on your
with the coordinates, only if you want.
- The application is fully compatible with Google Map. It is possible
to locate your nearest Twitter friends from your position on Google
Map within the application.
- Switch off the geolocalization option in the setting to be in
"invisible" mode. Your friends won't be able to see where you are
anymore. Your tweets won't be geotagged.
The Augmented Reality functionality is only available to iPhone
3GS users. This application does not work on other iPhone / iPod
Touch models for the moment.
