Does the job but still confusing

I am a very basic Twitter user but wanted to find a decent app now the official Mac client has been discontinued. I tossed between Twitterific and Tweetbot and chose Twitterific because people said it was easier to use, but I haven’t found that the case. I find the interface design a bit weird - it isn’t obvious how to do certain basic things, and other behaviours are downright bizarre (good luck trying to scroll to the top of your feed - it takes you to a number of random different locations just by pressing home). I hoped for something more slick for the money.

Wonderfully Twitterrific

I’ve been using Tweetbot for both Mac and iOS for many years, having purchased Twitterific previously. Whilst Twitterific will never beat Tweetbot in terms of advanced power features like mute filters and the like, it is simply a league above in terms of ease of use, interaction and overall aesthetic. You can really tell that the developers have paid attention to some many little details. This makes the app a joy to use. Plus the notification sounds on both iOS and Mac are amazing.
Overall, Twitterific will serve as my main workhorse for Twitter while occasionally dipping into Tweetbot for an advanced search. But compared to Ollie, Tweetbot looks so dated and bleak.
I got the app when on sale for £7.99. At that price, it’s a steal. Go get it. It’s the best you can get for Mac, even more so now that the awful official Twitter client for Mac is being retired.

Good, but fiddly interface, annoying quirks.

I bought this to replace the mac twitter app, and it does mostly fine, as in the main functions. but a few things drive me mad,

Thread reading is really annoying, spawning a window which disappears when you click away from the app

Video player cannot be full screened, and has no timeline scrubber,

You can’t resize an image unless it’s been moved away from the main window.

Other interface bits and bobs meaning it just feels fiddly. If I could have the twitter ipad app on the desktop, I’d go for that right away. Fingers crossed there’ll be some kind of "view all content inline” button in the future.
