Violation of universal UI convention

I love everything about Twitterfic, but one thing has me completely baffled. In every app on Mac OS, Windows, and Linux, when in “read-only” mode (such as web browsers, PDFs, Twitter clients, whatever), tapping Spacebar means Page Down. *It’s how we universally navigate read-only interfaces since the dawn of GUIs*. But for some unknown reason, Spacebar doesnt’ work for Page Down in Twitterific. If you have a full size keyboard with a dedicated Page Down key, you can fall back to using that. But on a Mac laptop which doesn’t have one, what then? What key are you all using to achieve page down? And why doesn’t Twitterific support this universal convention? I switched over on the news that Twitter was abandoning the official client, only to hit this usability wall. Frustrating.

macOS app severely flawed, needs timeline window update!

Today I took the plunge and bought into the twitterrific ecosystem buying both the ad-free version of the iOS app and the macOS app. While the iOS app is flawless having every feature you could want (auto night mode, cross-platform timeline sync, etc) the macOS version 5.3.3 lacks in performace, streamline use, and design. Twitterrific, I would like a refund or corresponding bug fixes because this version is not worth any amount of money. Prior I used Tweetdeck and due to the lack of iOS app, I had to switch. The two biggest overall issues is the noticeable lag when opening and dragging a timeline window on my fully spec'd MacBook Pro 2015. It’s jitters beyond usability. The second, why does the app not combine the timelines into ONE window? Instead it opens a new app window and the user is unable to join the timeline windows into one. This voids of any cohesion within the workflow. The new timeline window opens up tiny and requires the user to resize it. Please refer to the design of Tweetdeck or Tweetbot and update where you have a single fullscreen window with a timeline strip for home, notifications, mentions, messages, likes, lists, and search. Tweetdeck’s UX design utilizes the fullscreen capability of the desktop while maximizing workflow. While twitterrific gets most right, the macOS app needs urgent updating or I would like a refund to buy tweetbot alternatively.

New to Twitterrific and really enjoying it!

I’m mostly new to Twitterrific, having only used the iOS app years ago. Recently I decided to give both the Mac and iOS apps a try after hearing about how great they are on a popular tech podcast I listen to. I have to say, I’m very impressed and delighted so far. Timeline sycning is great, the compose experience is nice and clean, and it’s easy to keep tabs on conversations. I also really love having the ability to pull Tweets out into their own window, it makes it easy to follow a conversation or a specific user’s timeline. I also love being able to command+O to view Tweets in a mini browser, which is handy for viewing details of a Tweet (like who liked or Retweeted something), as Twitter’s API makes it a real pain for Twitterrific to actually implement that in-app. There are tons of other useful keyboard shortcuts as well, which I discovered after reading their help docs. Anyway, yay, love it and will be switching to it as my primary Twitter client on Mac (and on iOS too).
