Replaced Tweetbot with this
For as long as I can remember, I've been a user of the various versions of Tweetbot. Upon recently upgrading my MBP I encountered numerous UI issues with Tweetbot. So, I did some checking around and saw that Twitter had an app out (I thought they killed it) for Mac. I've been using it, and enjoying that usage, ever since. I haven't even logged back in to Tweetbot since that day, and will likely delete it after writing this review. I typically find that I do not enjoy apps created by the service, but Twitter has left me pleasantly suprised. My one complaint is that the app routinely encounters an error and shuts itself down at least twice a day. Other than that, the design is wonderful and friendly to use. I can rotate between various accounts. Composing longer tweets is a simple click. Dark mode is pleasing and useful instead of gimicky. The ability to customize the app and settings is user friendly. Well done!
So close, but could be better
This is a Catalyst app, and I love the Twitter app on my iPhone. So with this being basically the iPad app, I wish I could be happy using this all the time for my Twitter needs. It's a little laggy, crashes sometimes when you click on a navigation pane option, and when I click on any sort of Twitter link (even just wanting to watch an embedded video from Twitter) it automatically opens the Twitter app which just means I have to wait for the app to load up and load the obscure tweet I want. Biggest things I hope that can be changed in the future are optimizing the speed, letting me click on a Twitter link without opening the app, and keeping the app running when I close the window.
Fair app, uninstalled because using on Safari is better
The app is nice, I like having notifications for replies, and it is nice to use it when you are actually consuming your timeline.
Unfortunately there are major flaws. The video player keeps having bugs and snags, regular expected keyboard navigation don't work (hitting esc to close image/video popup, for instance) and opening links sent from friends is at a whole new level of breaking my flow, and there is no option to disable it.
To clarify: Say I am on my timeline, someone sends me a link to a twitter thread, I click and it takes over the app instead of opening in Safari. Fine. But I decide I'll look into it later. I am forced to abandon th thread to go back to what I was doing. And sometimes more than one people send different stuff while in a group chat or something, and you can't keep tabs to each of the stuff to look as you would do normally on Safari. Since there is no option to disable the integration, I decided it is better to use third party applications for timeline reading and uninstall the official Twitter app, as it is the only one that takes over the links sent. This way my flow is not interrupted and everything works just fine.
It is unfortunate that twitter aggressive use of caching and progressive app tech keeps breaking twitter on the web too, but that's a conversation to another day.
