Creating a new Twitter client for mobile devices

Yesterday I decided to create a Twitter client for mobile devices. This new client will be created in Flash and you will be able to use it if you have Flash Lite 3 installed on your device. Flash Lite 3 can be installed in many many devices and actually there are some of them that have Flash Lite 3 preinstalled.
Right now I’m in the planning stage and, with this post, I’m asking for feedback and some functionality that you’d like to see in this new client.
Some people already told me what they would like to see.I’ll list what I have today.

  • Based on Twhirl
  • Retweets
  • Direct Messages
  • Favorites
  • Identify conversations
  • Short URL
  • Support for images
  • Avatars
  • Lookup and search
  • Friends and Followers
  • Hints while typing twitter IDs
  • If you have any other functionality that you want to add to the client, please comment in this post.
    Kind Regards.
