Could do better
I’ve been using tweetdeck for years. Initially as a mobile app before the ludicrous decision to concentrate on desktop only, then as a web app and finally on the iMac. It’s good but it’s going downhill. I like having a desktop app rather than going via a web app as it suits my particular work style, though I wish there was still a mobile companion so that I could use seemlessly on tablet and desktop. But like the website this app is buggy. It’s slow to start, often just opens to a blank page or an unending spinning dial. There is no GIF support and too much opens in a browser link rather than natively within the app. Enlarging images, clicking on profiles etc. shouldn’t need to open Safari, otherwise we might as well just use the web app version.
At the moment I continue to slog away with Tweetdeck as there are few apps filling the desktop market. But it’s only a metter of time before some upstart comes and swipes tweetdeck’s crown.
Solid but clunky and still no GIF support
A good app that I use for my business but feels dated. No GIF support; everything you click seems to take you to a seperate website (even viewing someone’s twitter profile photo).
Also, if left on all day, it seems to just cache everything and take up huge hunks of memory often resulting in a Force Quit and restart.
It’s OK and it’s free, but seems very off-brand for Twitter considering their great new UI updates on the rest of their apps and site.
Great, but missing features
I love Tweetdeck, and I use it as my main Twitter app now. But it does seem pretty behind the times for an official Twitter app. Still doesn’t let you view GIFs in the app, it takes you off to the website to do that. Feels like a major update is needed. The site and the mobile app get updates really quick and Tweetdeck hasn’t changed for a while...
