Thanks for downloading the Tweetminster app. Based on the online news platform, it uses the native iPhone experience to take Tweetminster's data into a new dimension.
This guide covers off the key features and those that may not be obvious at first glance.
The News section showcases the stories that are being shared the most by the people that Tweetminster follows.
It is split into a number of subsections covering a variety of topics. Under each one are the most popular stories around that topic.
The title of each subsection is clickable, enabling you to view more stories under that topic.
Clicking on any story in the News section opens the original article. While viewing the article, a number of options are available:
Sharing: the share icon at the lower right when reading an article gives you the opportunity to share it either via Twitter or email.
Sharing via Twitter: Clicking the Twitter button opens a simple Twitter dialogue box containing a link to the article, to which any additional comment can be added. As with any of the Twitter functions within the app, you will need to sign into Twitter to send the Tweet. This uses oAuth and is completely secure - we won't be able to see your password or be able to access your Direct Messages.
Sharing via Email: The email button opens the iPhone's email app and populates the body of the message with a link to the article. Additional comments can be added prior to sending the message.
The main news page includes a configure button. This opens a panel which gives you control over the content. You can dictate which topics appear on the main news page, in what order and the number of stories under each one.
The Live Feed is stream of the Tweets from everyone followed by Tweetminster. The stream can be filtered by clicking the 'Choose Feed' button at the top of the page. Each feed covers a different group of users - as many or as few of the feeds can be selected as required.
Each tweet carries the following Twitter functions: Retweet, Reply and Favourite. These functions can be used when when you log into Twitter from within the app.
The Data Section showcases the most popular trends that have been discussed over the previous 24 hours. Selecting one of the topics displays the top ten trends around it. Next to each trend is a number - this is the number of times it was mentioned.
While viewing the top trends under a topic, turning your iPhone on it's side changes the view into a bar graph.
