The iPhone, Twitter and photos get along quite naturally. Twitter users are invariably sharing parts of their everyday lives. An iPhone camera enables the users to add photos to most of the updates. MindTapp brings you PhotoNest to see your Twitter timeline in a distinct way by simply viewing the photos.

After launching PhotoNest, you can sign in using your Twitter account details. Once you sign in, you are shown a visual timeline for photos that have been posted to your stream on Twitter. The interface is thoughtfully designed to render simplicity. The photo frame of each photo resembles an age old photo slide, due to the beige outline. The author’s picture is displayed on an upper corner along with the username and the time at which the tweet was posted. The message accompanying the photo runs along the bottom of its frame. Images are resized to fit properly within the slides of the iPhone’s screen. More photos can be viewed by just scrolling down.

From within PhotoNext, you can post your own photographs too. Select an existing picture from the camera roll or just take a new photo using the camera in the application. Your photos are posted on Twitter through Twitpic, which is the only option present, and so you can’t change to any service of your choice. You can include your message alongside your photo when you post it.

However, the posting interface lacks a few things. The font is very small making it hard to read. As the text size reflects the appearance and feel of a visual interface, it is vital that the text that I type is clearly visible on the screen.

Priced at two dollars, PhotoNext is quite amusing, with its distinct style for viewing any particular portion from your Twitter timeline. Compared to LinkDew, a similar app, PhotoNext is slightly more descriptive. Centering merely on photos is likely to be a limitation for some people. In case you follow Twitter posts consisting of plenty of photos, then such a full-fledged viewer is appreciable.
