    The newest version of UT completely wipes TG off the map. TG is better with it's latest update, but it's not in the same league as UT. Nate wrote a good article about the new UT:

    Take a look at that for some of the features in the beta. I removed TG from my S2 after this update.

    I have both paid versions and have gone back and forth between the 2 several times. As of right now, übertwitter has many more features than tweet genius. the main thing tweet genius has on übertwitter is speed. tweet g seems to load everything much faster. Keep in mind the tweeg g file is about 200kb larger than ÜT from what I remember as well. So basically if you want a speedy twit app without the bells and whistles, go with tweet genius. Otherwise and in most peoples cases, stick with ÜT. I might use tweet g for a day or 2 every few months, but I always end up back on ÜT.

    TG is a nice app and the UI looks stunning compared to UT. I was using TG up until the last UT beta was released and then I switched over to UT full time. TG just can't compete with the features of UT right now. I'm sure there will be an update soon and I will end up going back to TG. You just can't find a better looking Twitter app IMO.
    Droooooiiiiiid!

    If you are on the Verizon network, go into UT options and switch your connection to 'Direct TCP'. It will be much faster I promise. Depending on how many tweets you have each app loading, it will be just as fast as TG (if not faster).

    For whatever reason the 'Auto' network only uses BIS-B and one of the other slower choices.

    I have to agree with TOMMY I changed that setting and UT is blazing now

    I respectfully disagree. I've always had UT and TG set on direct tcp from day one and comparing apples to apples TG is definitely much faster since they partnered w/ Beejive. At least on ATT. Is it possible different apps load faster or slower depending on the network (or CMDA vs GSM)? That's something I don't know anything about.

    AT&T? Well, you need 3G for Direct TCP to work lol j/k

    Well, do both retrieve the same # of tweets? You can choose 200 or 50 and that would make a big difference too. UT only takes a second to load for me so any faster than that doesn't even make a difference IMO.

    Obviously we have the best 3g. We have the guy from Old School on our commercial. And yea I've always retrieved the same # of tweets on both. Don't get me wrong here guys, I'm UT all the way, 300 days out of the year. Its feature rich and its not slow. Its just that I have personally found TG to be lightning fast. And have switched from time to time.
