Meet Birdie! Birdie combines the best of Twitter and news in one simple, beautiful app.
*Top Tweets First*
Unlike Twitter, Birdie shows the best and most important Tweets first. This means that you never miss what's worth reading, even if you have limited time. Tweets that are already read are automatically moved to the 'Seen' section, allowing you to focus on what's new!
In addition to highlighting the best Tweets, Birdie also surfaces the best replies. This means you don't have to scan through the noise and low-quality bot Tweets in order to find interesting exchanges. This makes your Twitter experience much calmer and higher-quality!
Birdie lets you focus on the most interesting people in the 'Favorites' section. Think of it as your iPhone's VIP contacts, or the people on speed-dial. Always easy to access with a single tap!
Ever wonder why something you have no interest in keeps popping up in Twitter's trends? With Birdie, you don't have to! Birdie automatically finds what's trending amongst the people you follow and interact with and highlights that first!
*The Best News*
Birdie highlights the best news articles from your timeline that match your interests. You can focus on reading news right in Birdie's distraction-free news section, which means you don't have to hop between Twitter and some other news app!
This update brings an amazing new News section. Birdie was already great at surfacing the best articles from your timeline and other sources, but we now take this a step further and bring you excellent analysis and interaction options for each article, right in the News Feed! We've also worked hard on polishing the UX - you'll notice cool new animations & haptic feedback, and can now customize the App Icon per your preference. Finally, we've added 3D Touch functionality that lets you perform key actions via the App Icon!
Ratings and Reviews
Excellent Twitter Experience.
Birdie providesAn excellent Twitter experience! It’s a free app complete with themes, the ability to change the icon, a button that links directly to news on Twitter, And of course no ads are sponsored posts. If there is an in app purchase for pro I would be making it. I was looking for a Twitter client to purchase when I found this free app. It feels as though I’ve just gotten away with something LOL.I understand why it has such high ratings. I’d like to know how the developer plans to continue to develop the app without charge you a fee, because I would like to see this app go away anytime soon.
Amazing app with some flaws
First off this app in my opinion is better looking than the stock Twitter app, but the only reason I will be going back to the stock Twitter app is because of the timeline. Honestly I would just get rid of the seen and new section and make it a single timeline. Or at least give the option to do that, but other than that no complaints!
Great start, dev is MIA
4 months since the last update and some things don't work right. All tweets in Favorites section are duplicated. Normal timeline jumps around so I lose where I was at as I was scrolling. Both happen each time I am using the app and it wastes my time.
If the app didn't have the favorites section, I'd probably give this 1-star and delete the app but I really like the notifications for the faves I selected. I like this better than how the main Twitter app does it. I tweeted for support since there is no email address in the Help section, it just makes you send a tweet. Then the dev never replied. I've waited for months for a reply. I give up. Maybe this will generate a response and maybe they'll fix the bugs.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for reaching out, lots of exciting stuff in the pipeline! Re issue(s), try force-quitting and restart the app. Is the issue persists, please Tweet a screen grab to @birdie_app
