Customer Reviews

Good, but is Lacking in Some Personal Essentials

This is my preferred Twitter app. It's generally fast to load up, and it's easy to use. I get my notifications instantly most of the time. It's very easy to switch from different accounts. It would be the perfect app for me if there was a way to set different alert tones for each account, like how Echofon is able. Also, to implement Twitter's new update of adding photos in DMs would be great.

The one major thing I don't like about Tweetbot is that it doesn't have notifications for when people I follow tweet, or tweet to each other. If Tweetbot had this feature, I wouldn't have a need to hang onto the official Twitter app. It's really inconvenient to have to use two or three different apps to get all the features I want for my Twitter needs.

Greedy Company

I felt compelled to write a review because upon opening this app I was greeted with a message asking me to upgrade to the newer version for a smaller fee than new customers. The fee I'm asked to pay is: $4.99 which is the same price for both versions.

Some developers like to tell people that they need income to support their families. Thing is, how much support are they wanting? You're asking us to support your fine dining? Support paying for new cars? Support for your greed?

What is our reward? These greedy companies only care about their profits. I would've upgraded to the newer version is the price was right. But I see that instead of ensuring that their previous fans would be guaranteed a good price, the price was only right for a short amount of time until they started to miss those extra dollars.

For this, I give you 1-Star.
I will no longer support your greed on principle.
Good bye.

Buy it AGAIN?!?!

I just bought version 2, how about not coming out with a new version right away and then asking me to PAY AGAIN for it? Wow, you guys should be banned from the App Store for this.

Update: cynical-minded people might believe that the "new update" was released mostly to hide all of the well-deserved negative comments that last version had due to the ridiculous business decisions made recently to hurt those who already paid.
