I'm in NYC for the first time and I need to find an open bar! I'm stuck in this darn airport… What's going on? What is "Paranormal Activity?" Why is Michael Jackson still a trending topic? Are there any parties going on tonight in London? Can I monitor Twitter for a type of job I'm looking for?
Here's where TwitterScout comes in… what's up with the delays at your airport? Open up TwitterScout and type in "Atlanta airport" (replace w/ your city name) and see what's cookin'...
TwitterScout is the first real-time Twitter search client for the iPhone. TwitterScout allows you to pick a search term and monitor Twitter to see what people are saying about it. Some search terms yield few results… some are gold mines of info. Sometimes the fun is in exploring. Short TwitterScout sessions are great for the bus ride to work :)
TwitterScout allows you to search Twitter instantly. The app will update itself in real-time as users post tweets containing your search term. Use the integrated Twitter Trends View to quickly search for the most talked about topics on Twitter or to easily access your recent searches.
