Overly complicated for use on Apple Watch


Before I can use it, I have to “enable push”. On what? The phone? The watch? It doesn’t say. The fact that I had to Google how to make this stupid app work shows that it’s poor design. Good design is intuitive, and this is not.

Also what I found out after Googling it is even more horrific, this company put “push” behind a paywall. Instead of doing normal iOS things like every other app, they are doing their own thing to squeeze every last dime out if you. They don’t have to require their own “push” service, but they do so they can control every aspect of the app.

EDIT: In response to what the developer said, that’s simply not true. You’re lying to people in order to charge them for something they don’t need. If you can display content on the iPhone app without you "push" then you can do the same on the Apple Watch app. Also you don’t need to run your own database, since you’re just piggybacking off the Twitter database. The ONLY reason you’d "require" these things is to force people to pay a premium to have Twitterrific on their watches.

Sorry you're upset EPJS, developing and maintaining a push service for hundreds of thousands of users, collating that data and presenting it in real time is an expensive proposition. The push service powers Twitterrific's today view (stats) and the Apple Watch and requires constant updates and maintenance, hence it's a paid service. As for clarity, things can always be better and we're dedicated to improving the experience on both the iPhone and Apple Watch as much as we can in future updates. Thx for listening, if you have specific feedback, we'd love to hear it! Please do send it to us at Thanks so much.

Fantastic app


Probably the best 3rd part twitter app available (compared to others that are free/cost money). I follow a lot of accounts and the app always shows me the number of tweets I have to read (a lot) every time I open it. I really enjoy the muffle feature because I can muffle all the things I don’t want to read and focus on the stuff that actually matters to me. And even if I choose new words to muffle, the app automatically filters them out and I can keep scrolling through my feed without interruptions. I also like the streaming feature on WiFi, but that’s been around for awhile. Haven’t had any problems with the app at all and they’ve always replied promptly to inquiries (like when they were going to update to 280 characters). Keep up the good work! 🦖🦖🐙

Hey, thanks for the kind words about us and our app, we really appreciate it. We'll keep updating Twitterrific and you keep enjoying it, deal? Thanks for your support!

This makes Twitter so much better!


I've been using Twitterrific for a long time now, and I've always appreciated how it gives me the simple chronological timeline I want, without "you may have missed" stuff, other people's likes, etc. And it's easy to use. I spend hours a day with it.

Now I'm even more pleased because I can (optionally) muffle those new long tweets. I can see someone tweeted over 140 characters and view the tweet if I choose - but otherwise, I'm back to 140-character Twitter. (Someone else I know is setting his limit at 160 characters.)

Also, there's a character count so I can keep my own tweets from running long. And this nicely designed change came out very quickly after the Twitter change to 280. I couldn't be happier with this app!

Thanks for your kind words, we hope you continue to enjoy using Twitterrific. Take care!
