Why “Adian”? Simple, really. App.net is often shortened as ADN. Now, pronounce “ADN.” Sounds like “Adian,” right? So, there you have it.
But what of the functionality behind the name?
Well, Adian, which is optimized for iPhone, boasts a good many features. In fact, Adian has more features than Rhino, which is only to be expected, since the former is a paid app whereas the latter is a free one.
These features, as listed in the app’s App Store description, include:
- Multi-account support
- Timeline, Mention, User, Global feeds
- Reply thread viewing
- Saving drafts of posts
- User profile view
- User feed view
- Avatar fullscreen view
- In-app browser
- PUSH NOTIFICATIONS for mentions!! :)
- Lightning fast loading and scrolling
- Posting photos to Flickr or FireFoto
If you’d like to have a good basis to inform your decision on whether to download the app or not, wait for a full review from my colleague Christine to be posted later here on AppAdvice.
