Wasn’t sure at first... - I’ve always been a huge Tweetbot fan, so it was going to take some convincing to get me to switch over to Twitterific. So far, I’m very impressed. First of all, it’s great to have another premium Twitter app; they’re few and far between. The $20 price tag is a non-issue. C’mon people, you have at minumum a $1000 Mac, so use software and apps that will utilize it to its fullest potential. (Personally, I prefer reasonably priced apps over freebies, because that means the developers will likely have a successful business model.) So yeah, I’m sticking with Twitterific. Can’t wait to see what future upgrades hold. Great job, guys!

Version 5.0.1
Review by Komocode

Not as good as Tweetbot - I want to like it, but it doesn’t meet my expectations. - No video upload support. - No activity log. - In order to see details/thread of a tweet, you double click for a pop over, but if you click a link in the tweet, the pop over closes which you have to open again to see. - No quick translation shortcut - Tapping on like, then tapping retweet removes your like for some reason - I have to click on a tweet to make the like/retweet controls appear (tweetbot does it by hovering over a tweet) - No spacebar to close a picture. It should follow what macOS quick look does These things ruin the experience for me so I basically uninstalled it and returned back to Tweetbot. Pricing it at $20 for these issues is the reason why I rated it 1 star. The only thing they got right where Tweetbot seems to be lacking is the quick user switch support. Tweetbot has this stupid animation that you have to wait until it finishes before you can click on an account to switch. Twitterific is instant, has no stupid animations.
