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

Version 1.4.9
Review by s.beiermann

Finally caved to buy this. - I had the Sparkle updater version for the longest time and I kept promising "I'm going to buy this someday, I'm going to buy this" and I've finally kind of had it with accidentally clicking on the ads. You win, naan. I love you guys. Echofon is my most used app on both Mac and iOS. I love how far its gone and what it has become. Please keep it up. Someone mentioned in a previous version review that there isn't a "reply all" function. I checked my Sparkle version, MAS Lite, and this one. It's a contextual menu option. Right click and hit "reply all". Update! 1.4.9: I like what you did with the tab bar, but I don't understand the "international hash tags support". I thought it was finally being able to choose which region I can see trending topics in, like the iOS Echofon. Still, I love the new tab bar design.

Sync does not work - Sync for Echofon has not worked in a very long time reading the same tweet twice is a norm. That’s my biggest issue with Echofon since I also have it for my iPhone and iPad. Hopefully this feature is fixed for all platforms. Update 08/20/15: Does not support the new quote RT or new DM format.

Doesn’t work - After adding one user, Echophon cannot obtain another twitter token to add user. No update in almost 2 years.

Version 1.8.7
Review by Iaian7

Echofon used to be the best... - The UI is vastly superior to the alternatives (which are hideous, bloated messes), and the fact it can (at least for some people) sync with the iOS app is critical for me. Unfortunately, it hasn't been updated in ages, giving the impression that development is abandoned. I've submitted a support ticket regarding the account sign-in bug (you can't sign in to more than one account due to a program error, even though "multiple accounts" are advertised), and I sincerely hope they're working on an update that will support all the latest Twitter changes (especially URLs and names not counting towards the 140 character limit, and longer format DMs).

Doesn’t work - The iOS version works great but the Mac version can’t log in no matter how hard I try.
