Echofon for Mac is the minimal yet powerful Twitter app that syncs unread Tweets with your iPhone.

The Echofon interface was carefully designed to be comfortably left open all day, it stays out of the way when necessary and expands to support all the advanced features you need, when you need them.

Unread tweets stay in sync with your iPhone. If you read tweets on your Mac, and later open up Echofon on your iPhone, you can pick up right where you left off. Never again will you read the same tweet twice!

Easily attach photos to your tweets with drag and drop. You can also attach screen captures, current iTunes song, or current page in Safari. Echofon uses handy indicators to show which tweets have photos, videos, location, conversations etc.

Echofon has a unique drawer interface that is used for supplementary tasks such as viewing a user’s profile, timeline, favorites, followers etc. It is also used for people search. This helps you keep focus on the main timeline while pulling up other information as needed.

Use all of your Twitter accounts in Echofon, account switching is easy and you’ll see a subtle notification for mentions and messages you recieve in background accounts.

Full search support including trends with explanations, saved search and people search.

Echofon used to be the best...

The UI is vastly superior to the alternatives (which are hideous, bloated messes), and the fact it can (at least for some people) sync with the iOS app is critical for me. Unfortunately, it hasn't been updated in ages, giving the impression that development is abandoned. I've submitted a support ticket regarding the account sign-in bug (you can't sign in to more than one account due to a program error, even though "multiple accounts" are advertised), and I sincerely hope they're working on an update that will support all the latest Twitter changes (especially URLs and names not counting towards the 140 character limit, and longer format DMs).

Good, but does not sync like it should

Great twitter app, but it does not sync like it says it will! I mean I have deleted and reinstalled everything on mac, iphone and ipad, contacted echofon they did what they had to do on their end and still not syncing! You figure for twenty bucks it would work with syncing, but it doesn't! Other than that it's a great app, I really don't believe it's worth $20 though! I mean come on Twitter is free and some are 99 cents! Since really all this does is get rid of ads, from the lite verison! If your looking to get this app along with ipad and iphone for syncing I wouldn't do it especially since this app is $20 and it doesn't work!
