Memory Leaks didn’t get fixed. Dealing with these issues is getting real old

I’ll leave alone the fact that this is an “upgrade” in name only, feels more like a downgrade when compared to version 1.x. I was willing to unhappily overlook all that if they’d just fix the memory leaks that have plagued this app for many versions, but that just wasn’t to be. Even those it’s listed in the changelog that memory leaks were fixed, this is either incorrect or they introduced new ones as the app still experiences massive memory leaks if it isn’t the active app on your system. Sometimes this is so bad you have to force quit it, as it becomes uncontrollable. At least they put back the ability to change the size of image thumbnails in the feed, never did understand why that was removed in the first place.
I really wish I still had a backup with the 1.x version of the app, because I’d ditch version 2 in a heartbeat. All the changes for ver 2 did was destroy what was a pretty good GUI and made it harder to read and use. I guess I’m going to have to start looking around for a new Twitter app, which is too bad because TweetBot used to be great.

Update looks awesome; small image thumbnails are back!

I’ve been a happy user of the Tweetbot 1.x series, and the 2.x series is a nice visual improvement — Tweetbot finally feels “grown up”, and right at home on a Yosemite system. In general, I’ve found it to be stable, featureful and easy to use, and the 2.x series continues that trend.

As a Tweetbot user, I don’t need to worry about filtering through Promoted Tweets, nor do I need to try to figure out which tweets happened when; Tweetbot actually presents tweets in a strict time-based order, regardless of @-replies or which tweets are “popular”. I really appreciate this simplicity; it’s exactly what i expect from a Twitter client.

Previously, I had complained that the 2.0 series removed small image thumbnails, but in the 2.0.2 update, this feature has been restored. Many thanks to the developers for listening to feedback and restoring this feature!

A high quality, cross platform Twitter app

I have never regretted paying for this app. It has a fun sense of design that doesn’t feel like it was dashed off. Everything works well, there are options for what extra services to connect to, you can use multiple windows and swipe forwards or backwards into a long string of Twitter references, and it works very well with the iPhone application. It’s really nice how either app knows when I’ve scrolled up in the other, and automatically moves to match it. This couldn’t be more intuitive and fluid.

It works the way Twitter “should” work without extra advertisements, sponsored tweets, dotted lines, or “tweets you missed while you were away” in the middle of my stream. Maybe one day they’ll have to put these in, but for now it’s so nice and simple.
