How to Setup Ping.fm in Tweetie

ping_tweetie

It took me awhile, but I finally figured out how to set up my Ping.fm account in Tweetie. I thought I would take a moment to write up a quick guide to walk you through the process of setting up your Ping.fm in Tweetie in case you are having trouble. The process is simple you just need to have faith…

 Learn more about the iPhone Twitter app Tweetie. (You’ll need iTunes to to view this page.)

A Step by Step Guide to Setting Up Ping.fm on the iPhone Twitter App Tweetie:

  1. Launch Tweetie on your iPhone. (Please Note: The settings for Ping.fm are not located in the Tweetie Settings under Settings. But, you will need to have the multiple accounts option turned on for this to work. That is found under settings.)
  2. Tap the Accounts button in the upper left corner of the app.

  3. Tap the Edit button in the upper left hand corner of the app.
    02_clickedit
  4. Tap on the Twitter account you would like to attach to your Ping.fm account to. Do not worry touching the account name will not “Delete” the account.
    03_click_account
  5. Tap on the Advanced options.
    04_click_advanced
  6. Tap on the Ping.fm option.
  7. Enter in your Mobile Key from Ping.fm. Go to http://ping.fm/key to get your key.

  8. Success!!! You should now see an Authorized alert pop up.

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions or comments.

P.S. I don’t know about you, but I’m really digging the new Dark theme for Tweetie. It’s Nice.

    If Ping.fm is configured to post to Twitter, this results in double tweets, right?

    marc, to be honest I’m not sure how tweetie supports ping.fm. I’ve playing around with it and it’s not working the way I would have thought it would have. So to answer your question, I don’t think it will produce double tweets in its current state.

    I wanted to follow up on my comment. After re-entering a new mobile key from ping.fm, i was able to post my tweet to ping.fm. No double post on Twitter.

    Until is supports ping triggers, this is not so useful to me: I want to be selective about whether I post just to twitter or to all my ping-enabled accounts.

    Are you still using Ping.fm and if so do you still like it?
