Customer Reviews

The best way to Twitter

I've loved this app for a long time. Its restrained design keeps the focus on the content and makes Twitter look beautiful. As the official app becomes more and more cluttered, I've only appreciated The Iconfactory's work more.

For as long as I've loved the app there's also been some feature or bug fix I wish it had. There was a period where I got a bit disappointed in the lack of progress and looked elsewhere. But lately Twitteriffic has been rapidly improving, and I just realized that I have absolutely no complaints with it now. It's pretty much perfect.

This isn't the only great Twitter app, and if you want as many features as possible you may want to look elsewhere. But if you just want a great looking Twitter app that gets all the important stuff right, check this one out. For me, Twitter has never quite felt like Twitter without it.

P.S. I also really appreciate that it doesn't support TwitLonger

Still Broken. Trainwreck of an App at this point

It is a beautiful app. That doesn't work at all.

Tweets post about 1/4 of the time. Sometimes they lost then you try to send a new tweet and when you hit compose the old tweet is still there even though it already went through. Most of the time tweets just don't post. Notifications are buggy. Basically, anything other ban the appearance of the app is useless. Pretty ridiculous.

Even after another update they haven't fixed the DM problem. About half your DMs show up. Worthless app until they fix it. None of the flashy extras matter without core functionality.

I used to love this app.

Twitterific used to be the best app on the market. However, it lost a lot of functionality with the last update. Now the timeline hangs indefinitely, and it's a 50/50 shot whether tweets get posted or not. Old tweets will hang around for hours in the compose window. That being said, all of this isn't enough to make me return to the official Twitter app, but I did open it this morning for the first time in months. Please don't make me return to that blinding white pile of garbage.

Please fix Twitterific. I used to use this app constantly, but now it's near-constant frustration.
