Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes, and with Bluebird we absolutely believe that. The way in which you browse your timeline and interact with tweets should never be an afterthought, it should look stunning. And it does.

You can go from light to dark as effortlessly as tapping an on-screen button. You can change accent hues to match any outfit, and pictures don't have to be small and tucked away. They can be big and bold. It's the same old Twitter, but with a fresh new coat of paint.

What's New

Version 1.0.2

More bugs than a certain Pixar movie; but unlike them, I like to squash whichever ones I come across. Here's what's changed:

• Updated remaining in-app website link and mentions of 'Flitter' to 'Bluebird'
• Replaced empty lines and spaces in tweets where there would be links
• Small under the hood fixes to reduce memory consumption slightly
• Fixed issue where tapping links in mentions would crash the app
• Fixed special character decoding in tweet details
• Other minor fixes and UI tweaks

I have a huge list of bug fixes and new features I'm working on that I'm excited to release bit by bit. There's so much more to come!

Ratings and Reviews

It’s okay, but not perfect.


• Doesn’t seem to find verified/celebrity users when searching for them.
• Kept freezing on me whenever I’d switch between country trending pages.
• When I signed up for a new account, even after verifying, the profile page was rampant and full of bugs, flickering around and generally going nuts.
• The app kept freezing when I tried to swipe it away (iPhone X), forcing my springboard to freeze for a few seconds.
• Tweets could be better displayed as to differentiate them from one another, especially when viewing hashtags and lots of images are being used.

Good but needs improvements.


In my opinion needs some improvements, like show complete information on someone's profile (for instance the location), auto-play GIFs, there are some bugs (the sound of a video gets stuck and you can listen to it even when you are not watching that). And the one that disturbs me a lot is when you want to see for the likes or retweets in a tweet and it's being shown on the 'favstar' page, not into the same app.
On the other hand, I like the app, is clear and beautiful.

Getting there


Very good looking UI, mostly fine but quite laggy at times, timeline doesn’t always refresh properly unless force closed, some tweet don’t display properly (cut off mid sentence/image) so needs some polish!
