Customer Reviews

Clean minimal design, clear information hierarchy

I've used Twitteriffic for years. They were the first app for Twitter (well before Twitter's own apps), and they never stood still along the way, inventing or refine a lot of Twitter’s best conventions. It’s the client for the kind of person who loves Apple products—a lot of power in a very clean, beautiful, thoughtful package.

Best free app so far.

It’s pretty, customizable, and easy to use. It has some hiccups but not enough to make me delete it. Wished it would let me tweet gifs though. I give it 3.5/5

Update: after feedback from the developers (thanks!), I’ve been made aware of the process of tweeting gifs. It works most of the time. I now give it 4/5.

The Twitter app that keeps getting better and better

Every time the developer updates this app, more features are added! This is by far the best twitter client available on iOS!
