SimplyTweet was a client for Twitter, the social networking website. It ran on iPhone and iPod touch. It was one of the few Twitter clients that supported push notifications.[1] It aimed to be a full-featured application with a simple user interface.

SimplyTweet was developed by Yar Hwee Boon, who said that the initial inspiration was his desire for an app that would be able to follow conversations – tweets that reply to an interesting tweet, or tweets that prompted interesting replies. As additional functionality compared to other Twitter clients, he cited photo search, push notifications and conversation threading.[2]

On 5 March 2013, MotionObj announced that the app was being discontinued, and both the paid and free versions removed from the iOS App Store. There were no plans to produce updates or revamps, although it would continue to be supported via email and push notifications would continue to run for a time.[3]
