Sync And View Twitter Updates On Desktop & Mobile With Echofon

There are many feature-rich Twitter clients for multiple platforms including desktop and mobile devices, such as TweetDeck, Seesmic, Sobees and Pidgin. Recently, a new Twitter client was released with the name Echofon. It is a cross-platform Twitter client for desktop and mobile devices. It provides support for using multiple Twitter accounts simultaneously and makes it easy to switch between numerous Twitter accounts to view your account updates. All unread tweets are synced with your desktop (Windows or Mac) or mobile (iOS) device. For example, if you check some Tweets on your desktop computer and later access Twitter via Echofon from an iPhone device, you will be presented with the tweets which were not read from the desktop client.

The first time you sign into Echofon from a mobile device or a Windows/Mac computer, you are asked to authorize the Echofon app and enter a verification I.D. (which is provided by Echofon).

Authorize

Once done, you will be able to access Echofon from your desktop or mobile device. The main interface displays all basic options for viewing your Twitter timeline, mentions, messages and to search Twitter.
