Ratings and Reviews

Still a little rough, and I object to forced sub also

The app looks promising, but it's got some rough edges; definitely seeing some UI glitches and tweets not quite rendered correctly (quote tweet on the tweet in Twitter web UI not being displayed in the Aviary client, etc. Nothing deal breaking, but like some other reviewers, I too objected to being forced to sign up for an annual subscription just to start the free trial. I may come back when the app has evolved a little, assuming the splash screen is changed… perhaps to allow opt in to a monthly sub instead of a yearly, or to not force subscription until trial period ends. Have cancelled for now.

Half baked

Here’s the issue - you can’t ask for premium tier pricing on something that isn’t done. This app combines every option from the top competitors. Where the competitors have taken years to fine tune and refine the features, this developer has just crammed it all in and shipped it. On paper, this is an attractive competitor. In practice, this is the same rubbish the developer has released for years. Half baked and unrealized. I tried this for less than eight hours before coming back to Twitterrific. Too many bugs and weird behaviors.
