TweetDeck for Mac now ships with a brand-new, well-designed user interface and a Twitter-for-Mac-like look, and it has multiple additional features that power users will love. By switching to HTML5, the developers have eliminated the need to continuously update Adobe Air, and now users can enjoy a neat app for reading, tweeting, and searching for specific topics of interest.
We liked how simple to use TweetDeck is. As soon as you set up your Twitter (or Facebook) account, you are off. While Twitter for Mac does a very good job for everyday use, it can't compete with this app's multi-column view, which can even schedule tweets, a very useful feature for better time management. TweetDeck is the app bloggers will love to use: it provides a clear, intuitive interface with easy-to-understand, visible controls to manage the information streams coming in, especially for users who follow thousands of people in the twitter sphere. Also, we liked how TweetDeck can track a topic of interest and display all the tweets that contain that specified query in a column, which, by the way, can be positioned at will. TweetDeck preserved the basic Twitter controls such as mentions and direct messages, and just renamed the columns to @Me and Inbox, for better understanding. Furthermore, just like the original Twitter for Mac, the app handles multiple accounts with ease. A feature we loved was the sound notification: when users search for a specific topic, they can get sound notifications each time someone mentions the query, which is useful, as you don't spend all day reading the twitter feed.
Overall, we liked TweetDeck's performance: it's stable, and the big window gives its users plenty of space to place as many columns as they like, so as to always be up-to-date with what is trending on Twitter. This app is surely a very useful tool for bloggers, and is packed in a sleek design and boosted with all the features a power user needs.
TweetDeck makes it easier for publishers, marketers and power users to track the real-time conversations they care about. It brings more flexibility and insight to power users through a customizable layout that lets you keep up with the people and topics that matter most to you. And, you can join the conversation by tweeting, sharing photos and links to news stories, and more.
