Just about perfect

I've been using Twitter for a many years now — since the iPhone 3G came out, and I've been using Twitterrific for most of that time, and for good reason: this is just about the perfect Twitter app!

It's gorgeous and functional (unlike the official app), and is made by a team of people who have a thing for making great looking, and easy to use apps.

It receives regular updates, and given it was the first Twitter app on the App Store, that’s quite a feat of dedication, which I feel has shown itself with its quality.

Absolutely my favourite feature of the app is swiping left or right over a text box to move the character cursor over one letter. Composing a tweet can sometimes be fiddly, and this gesture, that I cannot believe Apple hasn’t robbed for use elsewhere in iOS, quickly becomes instinctive. I’ve found myself trying it in other apps, only to be mildly disappointed.

The interface is highly customisable too, with features such as a night mode, and being able to change the font the app uses entirely.

Basically, everything the official app should be, and so much more.


My favourite app

I've used this app every day for several years now. The free version was fine, but it's well worth the money to add all features. Devs are communicative, and they've even implemented a couple of my minor suggestions. Performance has improved over the last few versions too. (Remember to clear account cache if it gets unresponsive.)
Video posting's been added. Woo!
Poll detection... Bit wonky, but better than nothing.
1. Better (faster) UI for account switching. How about…
- Put other account icons in the user sidebar, thus allowing switching by "tap, tap", rather than "tap and hold [wait], tap".
- Actually, the old twitter app's permanent account icons sidebar was great - a single tap to account switch!
2. Bring back avatar re-sizing in the timeline. Too big!
3. Clear cache of ALL accounts at once. Update: They say it's not possible. Oh well.

Apart from the above, I do like the look and layout, inline previews and in-app browser.

My favourite Twitter client after 3 years

Twitterrific does it's name justice - it is truly terrific as a Twitter client with the ease of reading your favourite tweets either on the iPhone or iPad. 'Delete and edit' is a genius bonus to the function. If you had to make one purchase for a Twitter client, make this your only :)


I love Twitterrific - the simplicity and elegance of the layout really made reading tweets easier and the send to pocket is definitely the one I use most. I really want to be able to see who retweeted or favourited my tweets when I click on the tweets! Please add this function :)
