DIFFICULT CHANGES

DISCUSSION

In the coming months, Twitter plans to discontinue the underlying services that we need to provide both push notifications and live streaming. As a result, we did not feel it was right to keep selling the push notification in-app purchase since we will soon be forced to shut it down. To that end, we've consolidated our in-app purchases to a single "Enhanced" option which eliminates ads and unlocks Google Translate.

If you have purchased push notifications in the past, both the notifications and the Today view will keep working for as long as we can keep them working.

The watchOS app was originally written in such a way that it depended on the data from the push notification service. Since that service is shutting down, it will render the watch app nearly useless without rebuilding it from the ground up. We've determined that the amount of development time and effort required for such a task is simply not economically viable at this time.

WiFi live streaming is another service that Twitter is discontinuing. To work around this, we've implemented more thorough automatic refreshing throughout the app - including for Lists which have never supported streaming. Live streaming will continue to work until Twitter shuts it down at which point the app will fallback to automatically refreshing approximately every 2 minutes while you are using the app.

Overly complicated for use on Apple Watch

EPJS

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.

Developer Response

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 support@iconfactory.com. 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!

So I have a question

Tower72

Since I installed this , I also chose the bluebird donation tier because I wanted to give at least something . Anyway I reinstalled this so I could give the Apple watch thing a try also , and it has not worked in the past 3 weeks . It always gives me some sort of error . So I deleted the app and installed again. The "tip" thing is back , and there is no restore option (dunno if that's even possible with an IAP)

Anyway I had to track down my history and see which tier I chose, and pick that again to avoid being double charged . Just today , after installing the most recent update , the tip thing is back yet again . So again I will choose my level . Is this going to keep coming back every update ? Oh and btw the Apple watch thing still doesn't work . I have a Series 3 non LTE version and it's still tossing me connection errors . Any idea why ?

Developer Response

If you've subscribed to the monthly subscription, the tip jar will go away completely. Individual In-app purchases don't remove the tip jar. They're there to unlock features not contribute a thank-you tip towards development. One of the advantages of the small monthly subscription is the removal of the tip jar.

As for Apple Watch this update should restore connectivity in day to day use but you may still need to force press "refresh" from time to time unfortunately. The Watch OS has several problems that we're trying to work around but it's proving difficult. Hope this helps, thanks for using Twitterrific.
