The whole concept of Twitter is to let people broadcast their thoughts in a concise manner, where the focus is on conciseness. Though, there are many people, who aren’t very fond of the 140 character limit. In fact, every once in a while, are all bound to feel like 140 characters just aren’t enough to convey certain messages. That is where Scrivor can come in handy. This new iOS app lets users compose extra long tweets, with no word limit, and then post them to Twitter as themed images. Cosmetically, the app is pretty good too, and the background of each tweet that you send through Scrivor can be chosen from among those provided in the app’s settings. Read on to learn more.
Scrivor has a a rather simplistic interface, with just two screens to work with. First of all, it is better if you choose the theme that you want to use for your image tweets. For now, there are just 6 backgrounds available, but the developer might be adding some more pretty soon. After you have chosen and applied the theme to the tweet page, you can begin writing on it. If you are using Scrivor for the first time after its download, the page will have help text within it, which you will have to select and remove.
When you are done, tap the clip icon in the bottom right of the note. If you have a Twitter account set up on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, a new tweet window will open up immediately. By default, there is some text in the window, telling others about the nature of the app, but you can change it to whatever you want.
The tweets you post via Scrivor will appear in your followers’ timelines as ordinary updates, and when they tap the image attachment, your extra-long tweet will be revealed. The app was released just two days ago and is available for free in the iTunes App Store. The app can be considered a work in progress for now (although it is pretty good even as it is), and the developer has promised to deliver some really awesome changes in future updates. The app can certainly use a few more paper templates, or why not allow users to use any image from the camera roll as the background for their tweets? Another promised new feature is the addition of more fonts and writing colors.
