A text review can hardly do this app justice because it is impossible to put into words how beautifully Tweetbot is made. Sure, I can describe how, at your touch, a tweet slides up revealing a navigation bar while simultaneous emitting the perfect sound. I can explain that swiping a tweet to right reveals the conversation and swiping to left displays related tweets. I can tell you about smart gestures, multiple timelines, and customizable navigation. I can even spew out a concrete list of every feature that Tweetbot includes. What I canâ€™t provide you, however, is the experience.
The problem with Twitter clients these days is that theyâ€™re all the same. Yes, the same. Sure, the features vary (slightly) between them and some come with cool themes. The experiences, however, are too alike. I used to get excited when a new Twitter app was released because each app offered something different, something new. Today, they all feel the same. What happened? When users flocked to a particular Twitter app, other devs copied what made that app special. Individualization was lost. Now the App Store is basically filled with slight variations of the same app â€“ with the exception of Tweetbot.
Tweetbot is different. Itâ€™s innovative and refreshing. Tweetbot isnâ€™t an app you use, itâ€™s one you interact with. Everything has an animation, a sound, a beautiful interface. And true to Tapbotsâ€™ style, the sounds are subtle and pleasant â€“ enriching the experience.
In case you canâ€™t tell, Iâ€™m a huge fan of Tweetbot, but it isnâ€™t for everybody. Tweetbot is full-featured, but doesnâ€™t have every possible feature known to those in the Twitter app world. Tweetbot doesnâ€™t have a mute option or display in-line photos. It doesnâ€™t have multiple themes or native push notifications (but itâ€™s compatible with Boxcar). If these features are deal-breakers to you, then Tweetbot isnâ€™t for you. Not yet anyway.
For those who are suckers for design, innovation, and dare I say, personality, Tweetbot will rock your world.
