Consider the oauth callback that you set in your application record as not much more than a placeholder. In OAuth 1.0A, it is required to send the oauth_callback you want to use explicitly on the request token step -- so regardless of what you set on dev.twitter.com, you still have to provide a URL during the OAuth sequence.
While the UI on dev.twitter.com will not allow custom URI schemes, the request token step will. So, put a placeholder in on your application record, preferably pointing to a website representing your application, and explicitly declare your custom callback on the request token step.
