RETINA! - Thank you for being the only app designed for the retina macbook pro! Seriously other apps need to learn from you, the only reason I bought this app over the free one was because of the RETINAZ! Looks glorious! Also I actually really like how this app works over the crappy free one. YAY FOR RETINA!!!
Everything Upside Down - I installed the update on my mac and now everything is upside down when I try to use the app. Please fix.

A pointless application - A dedicated application should offer some advantage over a website that does the same thing, especially when it costs money. Aside from making it easy to switch between accounts, Twitterrific is feature-poor compared to twitter.com. Its most annoying feature is that it's constantly prompting me for my keychain password. Once per launch should be enough, but it wants it again every ten minutes or so, and even when it's quitting. I love Twitterrific for iOS, but the OS X version has no excuse.
too difficult to do simple things - I have used Twitterific for a year now and use it on my iphone and ipad as well as the Mac. Unfortunately, it just gets in its own way all of the time. Specifically, it’s too hard to do simple things. I’m thinking specifically of retweeting, favoriting, etc. Sure there are hotkeys but how about making it easier than having to click up at the context menu? I think it could be great if they follow the setup found on their own iOS apps. I feel the iconfactory makes good products but after a year of using it I can fairly say I am disappointed. I look forward to seeing how they update it but until then I’m actually going back to the web version of twitter.com until it improves!
