I do not have an I-phone but coming from you guys, it must be good.

Is anyone else having a problem with scheduled tweets using the iPhone? When I schedule a tweet, I choose the day and the time, but then the program assigns the year 2010 to the tweet. The clock on the iPhone is correct and I don't see anywhere to set the year in Hootsuite.

Ideas?

VERY VERY VERY disappointing that this doesn't connect to facebook or fan pages and yet you are chraging me money for this when other free apps with near identical functionality are...free.

MY fault of course for not reading the fine print...but I STILL feel ripped off. This lack of functionality should have been written IN THE SPECS to avoid angry comments like this.

If I could return this product I would.

Sticking with another app till the fb & li integration is available. Any update on when that will be available? Approx date?

@Andy Gradel

You can't tweet to anything but your Twitter account(s). No Facebook, no ping.fm, so I can't really send updates using the iPhone app because they'll only go to Twitter and nothing else.

unless I'm missing something?

I absolutely love this app. I'm actively thinking about getting rid of my other Apps. It's that good. There are some minor things I would have done differently, but so be it...

Thanks for the Hoot!

@Support: Still no reply from you regarding iTouch 1st. gen needing a microphone so we cannot download HootSuite on our iTouch. Please let us know if you will be making changes to allow us to be able to get your app!

I did purchase it on iTunes thinking it might be the way to get it on my iTouch but that also didn’t work.

I have made several requests on your other blog page "there's an owl for that". Since so many people have the same problem, an answer would be nice!

Still looking for an answer to this question. Can someone from Hootsuite comment on this?

I have a iPod Touch Gen 1. It is running 3.1.2 iPod software as the current version. When I try to load the app, it tells me it can’t be installed and requires a microphone. Huh? Why? Will this be fixed? (Please?)

I think it is the best so far. I bought 3 other apps last week, even paid premium fees for global notification. I would add to what has been asked earlier push notification. Landscape orientation, larger text button option. Thanks anyway

Good start, BUT... 1) the inability to tell new tweets from old tweets, along with automatically loading at the top of the stream ia a major fail for both the desktop and iPhone apps. 2) the lack of synching between desktop and phone apps. If I have an account, it would have been nice to synch my desktop's tabs to my app tabs. And 3) the lack of Facebook and LinkedIn support like the desktop. As you have said, those are in work.

Those three reasons are why I bought the app, but will NOT be using it as my primary social network tool. That will remain Tweetie 2, QStatus, and TwitBird Prem (for notifications).

I love the app, but I would really like an "email tweet" feature. Helps when I want to read something later... Also - syncing from what you have on your computer to your iPhone.

Works on my iPhone 3G. Great! Thank you!

So happy about this app! All it needs is facebook and facebook fan-page management :) Great job guys, I'm a huge supporter of Hootsuite!

Trying to download the app from my iTouch over wi-fi and it says it will only run on an iPhone because it needs a mic. Is this just an issue with the way the app is set up on the app store. It looks like others have gotten it to work, I assume downloading it in iTunes and syncing. I'd prefer not to do it that way.

I need to update my firmware! Arrrrgh!!! I love Hootsuite that much!

@Gibson I experienced the same issue - but only after I downloaded it, since I bought it via the iTunes store. Very disappointing.

Oh, and I use an iPhone 3G w. latest firmware.

I loved it for 30 minutes, then it started to crash. Tried do delete all data and sign up again, but then it starts crashing again - always when I load home streams or hit refresh. Same goes for a lot of my twitter contacts. Seems to be a major bug.

Facebook and LinkedIn integration are being worked on in the owl laboratory as we speak. Stay tuned.

The features are great, but it's disappointing so see the lack of social network integration. At the very least, a Ping.fm tie-in would have been easy to throw in. Tweetie 1 (which I continue to use) had it, and no other client I've gotten since has.

I downloaded it via the iTouch AppStore app and it worked just fine for me, no mic required. Weird.

Got mine last night and it is constantly crashing whenever I load a Home stream on any account. From time to time it lets me load them, but as I start to go through it, bam, it crashes again. Whenever it does that, it garbles up the avatars of all my various accounts, taking one of them and applying it to the other ones (I update the account name/pass and it fixes it).

I want this to work because it's also what I use on my laptop, but first impressions have been much marred by my inability to use it right.

I'm using an iPod Touch, latest version.

I tried to download this app on my iPod Touch and the App Store wouldn't let me saying the HootSuite App required a microphone. I was pretty bummed, otherwise I would have bought it. What would you need a microphone for on HootSuite?

Dan

I bought this as soon as I noticed it had been released this morning (UK time).

There seems to be a major bug with Geolocated tweets - they crash the app. If ever a geolocated tweet appears in the time line, the app just shuts. Which makes it pretty much unusable in its present form.

Where's the Facebook and Linkedin functionality in the app?

The price is $1,99 - too much for me, using Tweetdeck for free with which I manage 5 different accounts. Really, can't you make it free, please?

I do not see any mention of push notifications. Am I right in guessing there aren't any? Just thought I'd ask! Thanks.

Actually at 10:48 Central time on December 9th, it's up for download both App Stores. I got mine.

I clicked on the app store link on hootsuite.com/iphone and it took me to the app store. I purchased the app and it's working just fine! So far it's looking like a solid app thats well worth the price!

That's correct for now, Alex. Stay tuned for social network integration very soon.

The crash occurs with geo-tracked tweets in the homefeed. We submitted a fix last night and the update should be available soon. For other issues, and for excellent customer service, please visit us at http://feedback.hootsuite.com
