TweetDeck redesigned, released as entirely new app

TweetDeck has re-released a completely redesigned version of its Twitter client as an entirely new application, removing the prior version from the App Store. TweetDeck 2.0 has been entirely rebuilt from the ground up focused on flexibility and performance with a completely redesigned user interface. The new app supports all of the standard Twitter features such as sending updates, both native and quoted retweeting, favourites, mentions, direct messages and searching and also allows posting to multiple accounts and integration with Facebook for posting status updates, notifications and wall posts.

Full custom column management is supported as in the prior version for configuring multiple accounts, services and feeds; columns can be easily reconfigured and new columns can be added at the touch of a button while navigating Twitter profiles and lists. The new app provides integrated Deck.ly support for posting longer tweets and supports image uploading, geo-tagging, username autocomplete and URL shortening using j.mp (bit.ly). TweetDeck 2.0 is currently available in an iPhone and iPod touch native version only; the iPad native version has notably been removed from the App Store with a note on the developer’s site that the redesigned version for the iPad is “coming soon.” TweetDeck 2.0 is available from the App Store as a free download.

About two weeks too late for me.  I got tired of losing tweets, the crashes, and the lack of multitasking support.  I switched to TweetList which I liked so much I paid for the full version.
