"We based the look and feel of twheel on our understanding of how human brains work, which derives from cognitive research conducted by our team's members," said Fluid Interactions CEO Kalle Määttä.
The app uses a display method designed to help extract meaning from large quantities of data.
Attention is drawn to the most relevant data through the use of colours - orange for unread tweets, blue for read, and white segments to indicate the degree of retweeting.
Designer Mikko Pitkänen said "the user interface design we have created was driven by a combination of brain study results and cutting-edge touch screen technology. We believe content is the user interface of today."
twheel is available free from the App Store.
