What's New in Version 3.1.2
Send a private message without limits: now you're no longer limited to 140 characters when writing a Direct Message.
This app is good for nothing more than basic reading and refreshing the timeline. Thats it!
Twitter for Mac app feels like it is YEARS behind the website and Twitter for iOS. The OS and iOS apps made the update for the number of DM characters available at about the same time, which was cool, but what about all of the updates before or after? I don’t understand why the OS app is so far behind the website updates while the iOS app is always kept up. Why isn’t there the ability to quote a tweet, or view a quoted tweet without having to click on a link first? I would love to be able to view all of the pictures in a tweet or on a timeline without having to individually click on each picture, then closing the window before going on to the next picture. All of my Direct message conversations aren’t even available. Also, what’s with not being able to view videos and GIFs directly on the timeline? If I want to watch a video clip or a GIF, the app will redirect me to the website anyway so why does the app even exist. The fact that a cell phone app is that much better than an OX app is unacceptable. We are living in 2015 here guys! These issues should not be issues at all! Twitter, do better!
An update, but onely barely.
I saw a Twitter update when I opened the App Store this morning. I was excited, thinking maybe finally I would get quote tweets. That is, unfortunately, not the case. What is the issue? Quote tweets are available now in other apps, however that app is missing Notifications for anything other than Mentions (and costs more than $13 to boot). This app is missing quote tweets, as well as some other features contained in other apps, as well as the iOS Twitter app. You would think that the OS X version of Twitter would be easier to develop than the iOS version, but for some reason, that doesn’t seem to be the case. So until there is a truly decent update to Twitter for Mac, we’re stuck with an app without all Notifications, or an app without quote tweets or GIFs. I look forward to the day that an app somehow contains both.
Simple, but lacks GIFs, other features
I got very excited when I saw there was an update for the Twitter app.
‘Finally,’ I thought. ‘Now I will finally be able to watch GIFs in the app without having to open a browser. I’ll be able to properly quote Tweets. It’ll be just as good as the phone app, maybe better!’
Well, I was wrong. This app still lacks many basic features that one can find on the iphone app or on the Twitter website. Please make this a respectable app. It’s awesome that it keeps things simple, but it needs some work.
