Boxcar-Twitter Push Notification

COST: $1.99
DESCRIPTION: Messaging, Native, Social Networking
..RELEASED: 7/9/09, VERSION: 1.0  -- RATING: 4 Stars..

Push Notification is all the rage because now you don't have to wonder who is trying to reach you, or when they actually contacted you. You get instant notification in a text box and audible notification with Boxcar when you use it with Tweetie or Twitterfic. However, if you have thousands of Tweeps, you may find your phone beeping all the time. That's a choice you'll have to make. It is definitely nice to have the ability to keep current with your Twitter friends because you never know when someone has something really important to tell you! Boxcar is a great addition to the Twitter arena.

"Boxcar sends you push notifications any time someone mentions you on Twitter or sends you a DM.  The best part is that it works with what you already love, Tweetie or Twitterific.  You will receive a push, and then your favorite Twitter client is opened."

--Note:  This app requires OS 3.0 or later. Rated 4+.
--Tip: Boxcar will be adding support for other Twitter clients in the near future.

--Tech Jargon: favicon - The name for a small icon used in most browsers to identify a favorite or a bookmark. When users visit certain Web sites, you may see a "favicon" in the browser address bar next to the URL, and in your list of favorites next to the title of the Web site you've bookmarked. Favicons act as a branded icon as these small images are often modified versions of a company's logo.
