A few steps forward, two giant leaps back

Latest Tweetbot for Mac update is a few steps forward, two giant leaps back. There are many excellent improvements here overall, but there are two huge problems, both of which they have told me are ‘known’ issues but haven’t been fixed for weeks. One: The sync between Mac and iOS apps is essentially broken. There’s a clumsy workaround they’ll tell you about - if you report this problem again and again and again to finally get their attention - but it frequently doesn’t work. (It didn’t work today, for example.) Two: When you manually type certain (not all, but there’s no way to tell which) @ names to add a mention or send a public reply message, the app immediately crashes. The former is one of Tweetbot’s major selling points, and it hasn’t worked properly since the latest Mac update several weeks ago. The latter is a basic function: How can you use a Twitter app that completely shuts down when you type a user’s @ name? I used to recommend Tweetbot to everyone, but I really can’t anymore.

Incomplete feature set

It’s nifty, and has a lot of features that web twitter doesn’t. Muting words/tags, looking at lists side by side, etc.

But it’s missing:
- Group DMs. It doesn’t even split them up into a bunch of messages to/from each person like my first smartphone did. They don’t appear *at all*.
- Seeing non-mention interactions in the mentions pane - wanting to see it all at once is a personal choice, but it’s not even an option. It cannot be that hard to add.
- Being able to have 2 fully-functioning account windows open. Why not? Why make me switch all the time?
- Threaded replies. Again, personal preference, but why not make it a setting?

Tweetbot did correctly post a 4-picture tweet for me when web twitter kept barfing. That’s worth something.

Great, but misses the mark in some areas

TweetBot is a great Twitter client, arguably one of the best. But on the desktop, it's annoying that going into a tweet detail and clicking on either the 'faves' or 'retweets' opens FavStar in a browser window. Why can't they just display that info in the app itself?
