Echofon for Mac is the minimal yet powerful Twitter app that syncs unread Tweets with your iPhone.

The Echofon interface was carefully designed to be comfortably left open all day, it stays out of the way when necessary and expands to support all the advanced features you need, when you need them.

Unread tweets stay in sync with your iPhone. If you read tweets on your Mac, and later open up Echofon on your iPhone, you can pick up right where you left off. Never again will you read the same tweet twice!

Easily attach photos to your tweets with drag and drop. You can also attach screen captures, current iTunes song, or current page in Safari. Echofon uses handy indicators to show which tweets have photos, videos, location, conversations etc.

Echofon has a unique drawer interface that is used for supplementary tasks such as viewing a user’s profile, timeline, favorites, followers etc. It is also used for people search. This helps you keep focus on the main timeline while pulling up other information as needed.

Use all of your Twitter accounts in Echofon, account switching is easy and you’ll see a subtle notification for mentions and messages you recieve in background accounts.

Full search support including trends with explanations, saved search and people search.


Release Notes:

- Bug fix for Instagram image preview
- Performance improvements

Better than Twitter for Mac - Twitter for Mac doesn't have the following features that Echofon has: - Takes less screen space and see more tweets per screen, with adjustable font and image sizes. - Get Growl notifications for Lists in addition to main feed. - Use your own accounts when automatically shortening links. - Sync with iOS app.

Way too buggy - The stupid side tab keeps openening up and showing me random tweets on my timeline. It also interrupts does this while I'm trying to read my conversation. & it happens within seconds, repeatedly.

Still no threaded tweets - Twitter changed its Retweet/Quoting style months and months ago, but Echofon STILL can't view these threads natively. All of my friends' retweets have to be opened in a browser for me to see the context. The only reason I still use Echofon is for its slim, unobtrusive 1-column profile and graceful handling of multiple accounts. Every other app I try wants to take up an entire window… …but the instant I find one that's slim and built for multiple accounts, I'm ditching this POS.

Review by hiodshih

Abandoned - Hasn’t been updated in over two years. Has a tendency to grow to use massive amounts of RAM (2+ GB in some cases). Used to be the best client and was nice that it worked across platforms, but I would say look elsewhere now
