One of the neat things about Facebook is that you can browse photos fairly easily, including through a user’s photo albums. Twitter doesn’t have the same visual tools, and many tweets just have links to uploaded photos. That problem is now a thing of the past. Scopy brings Facebook-like photo navigating, viewing, and “liking” to your Twitter feed.
Scopy digs through your Twitter feed, collects only the tweets with photos, and automatically extracts the images. The default Timeline navigation is designed to be scrolled vertically, where it includes username, date and time stamp, Like and Reply buttons, and accompanying text arranged in an easy to view format.
If you tap on any photo, Scopy will jump to full-screen mode, where you can scroll left and right to navigate. single-tap to show or hide controls, pinch and un-pinch to zoom, and use landscape or portrait orientation.
For the utmost convenience, Scopy offers the simple Pull-to-Refresh (swipe downward and hold) feature within timelines, and supports images hosted by Camera+, Flickr, Img.ly, Imgur, Instagram, Picplz, Plixi, Steply, Twitpic, YFrog, Twitgoo, Embedly, Posterous, Screencast.com, Skitch, and deviantART.
What Twitter client, especially one focused on photos, wouldn’t allow a person to share their own images, right? Tap on the camera icon in the top-left of the Timeline screen to create a new tweet. When adding a photo, you can leave it as is, or apply one of seven effects: Vivid, XProcess, Noir, Golden, Chil, Vintage, or Delta. Upload using Plixi, YFrog, Twitgoo, Posterous, TwitPic, or Steply.
Tapping on a username in a timeline will filter photo-related tweets to just that person. Speaking of filtering, you can jump to the People section to locate and quickly view Friends, Followers, and Favorites by scrolling or searching alphabetized lists. Designate a user as a favorite by tapping on the star to the right of their username in the Friends and Followers lists.

Scopy is designed for iPhone and iPod touch running iOS 4.0 or later. Scopy is currently on sale at an introductory price.
