LoopingCall - periodically call a  function.
TimerService - wrapper for the twisted service with LoopingCall functionality.

I use LoopingCall and write my own wrapper for the service,
but TimerService is really more universal for it.

More useful - create twisted Service and Plugins for your application,
use component architecture this interface adaptation.
In that variant you will construct TimerService from scratch =).

a)LoopingCall is implemented via calllater's

I've probably simplified it too much but what then is the difference?
thank you

You haven't really simplified too much.  They both provide the same
functionality.  LoopingCall provides it with one API, TimerService
provides it with a different API.  Of the two, LoopingCall is the
more commonly useful.
