Customer Reviews

Used this for a couple of years

A decent app for Twitter use. I have 4 accounts on the free version. Very clean and simple interface. There are often little bugs or glitches in the app - scrolling through your timeline and you’re automatically brought up to the most recent tweet of someone you’re following. This can get really annoying of course. It will get fixed but seems like these come around again when there is an update. Not bad, not the greatest, but whenever I choose to go with another Twitter app, I end up coming right back to Echofon.

Only one problem

The app is great and definitely my choice app to use for Twitter, however there is one bug that has been driving me up the walls. I once had another Twitter account linked with Echofone which has since been deleted/unlinked from the app, but I still get every RT, fave, mention ect. notification to my phone. I've had the account unlinked for a while and even deleted and reinstalled the app but I STILL get the notifications for this account that doesn't even belong to me! If this were to be fixed I'd be beyond happy with this app and it'd be perfect

Echofon Never Fails

My whole experience with Twitter started when a colleague in PR suggested Echofon. The free App has never let me down. I've been happy with the functionality for six years. Sometimes I wonder why I don't use the Twitter App or try to find some type of multi-platform social App, but why? If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Thank you Echofon for opening up the twitter verse for me. I can't imagine being on Twitter with anything else.
