Customer Reviews

New to Twitterrific and really enjoying it!

I’m mostly new to Twitterrific, having only used the iOS app years ago. Recently I decided to give both the Mac and iOS apps a try after hearing about how great they are on a popular tech podcast I listen to. I have to say, I’m very impressed and delighted so far. Timeline sycning is great, the compose experience is nice and clean, and it’s easy to keep tabs on conversations. I also really love having the ability to pull Tweets out into their own window, it makes it easy to follow a conversation or a specific user’s timeline. I also love being able to command+O to view Tweets in a mini browser, which is handy for viewing details of a Tweet (like who liked or Retweeted something), as Twitter’s API makes it a real pain for Twitterrific to actually implement that in-app. There are tons of other useful keyboard shortcuts as well, which I discovered after reading their help docs. Anyway, yay, love it and will be switching to it as my primary Twitter client on Mac (and on iOS too).

Missing key features such as activity and statistics

I'm coming from Tweetbot, having used it for years. Reading some reviews took the plunge, but while the UI is nice and the general interface, tweet composer, etc. I like better, there are some key features missing - mainly, statistics and activity. In some cases, when someone replies to a thread you're involved in, it won't show in @ directed to you, but it will show in the activity feed. With Twiterrific I'm missing out on all this activity.

The second one is statistics, which may not be critical to many users, it is for me, as I want to see who is liking and retweeting. I would class this as a lightweight Twitter client, not as a "pro" client warranting a $20 price tag. I'd pay maybe $5 for it, considering the features others have. Will ask for a refund.

Quickly becoming my new go to Twitter client

After two significant updates and a very quick minor one to support Twitter’s new character limit I have to say that I really like this app. Aside from the price I feel like this app is getting a lot more attention and upgrades compared to the alternatives right now. I wrote a review earlier outlining some limitations that are now all gone and my only real complaints are minor ones.
