PLEASE NOTE: Due to a change in Twitter API, this application no longer works, we are loking to resolve the issue as soon as possible.

It is a location aware application that enables you to search Twitter for tweets generated around you and/or notify when a tweet is made around you

How is that interesting you ask?

Say you are at a cafe and there is a celebrity next door, some lucky people are at the right place at the right time hanging out with the celebrity and boasting all about it to their friends on Twitter. You on the other hand my friend, are oblivious. One click on Quickie search could have told you what's going on next door!

Say you are at an airport and have a loooooooooong transit, or are stuck because the snow gods were not mighty pleased with you. There are potentially many around you in similar situation telling the World about it on Twitter, you my friend are oblivious again! Another click on Quickie search could have found you a mate to get drunk with and get back at the snow gods!

We love making these stories up so feel free to ask "How is that interesting?". Oh! and we love Twitter too

    Didn't like this. It posts on your behalf without telling you. It notified me of tweets that were nowhere near me.
