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.

Yes, unlimited characters in DMs, but...

…for the love of all, it would be great if that mute feature worked. I don’t even see it now as an option, when you’re on a user’s profile. I have a lot of people muted from my phone or the site, itself, but I keep seeing their inane babble on my TL, here. I could unfollow or block, but then I catch hell. I might want to communicate with these people, at some point, but I just don’t want to go cross-eyed looking at their drivel. I want to read who I want to read on my TL and get on with my life. As for the rest of the app, it works.
