One of my faves but falling behind

This app was great but I feel it doesnt get as much support as it’s mobile version. Both are great and I love that they sync off each other, but for an app for be about 7x more the cost you would hope that it would be updated more frequently. For example the mobile version has already been updated with the new Twitter quote feature… This version hasnt been yet.

Overall its great for managing multiple accounts. Having multiple searches/windows open is simple and managable unlike other Twitter apps. I would recommend as both a stand alone or a companion to the mobile app, but as I mentioned, updates are a bit on the slow side. Granted, I have experienced any bugs, just wish it was on par with the mobile version.

Ok, but nothing special

I had been using TweetDeck and switched. Unfortunately this doesn’t seem to add anything that TweetDeck doesn’t do. In my usage right now, they are pretty much equivalent in terms of features, except this is more expensive. Unfortunately.

One thing that TweetDeck just removed that TweetBot should add that would make it stand out is “Edit and Retweet”. Now both TD and TB just have Retweet or Quote Tweet. Neither of which are a good substitute for Edit and Retweet. Adding that as an option would be a positive. There are many times you want to make a quick edit either to correct a spelling issue or make it fit.

I hope they give us some options that make this worth the extra cost.

Tweetbot of OS X

I didn’t hesitate dropping $20 for Tweetbot. Not sure why it’s pricey, not sure i believe the twitter token scenario but ANYWHO…. i’m quite disappointed by the fact that Tapbots does not provide timely updates. no apparent structure to this company and their release schedules. they just release whenever they feel it’s about time. I’m not asking for a refreshed look but i am demanding you fix all the existing bugs before dropping a visual update. i’m also demanding you create a release cycle of say ever 2 months to address bugs. at this point, i don’t think Tweetbot for Mac is worth the asking price based on the fact that developers have their priorities mixed up. for now, 2 stars.
