Editors' Review


With its unobtrusive interface and multiplatform support, Twitterrific for Mac enables you to use Twitter without a Web browser. It includes numerous handy features such as timeline sync, multiple account support, and auto refresh, all neatly packaged in a pleasant interface. Twitterrific is an ad-supported application, but you can pay to remove the ads.

Apart from giving you a clean and intuitive interface, Twitterrific for Mac comes with a fully customizable toolbar and a sidebar, which both can be hidden if you would like a distraction-free reading experience. The app uses OS X's fullscreen mode, where each tweet occupies a single line of text. We had no difficulty linking several Twitter accounts and switching between them from the app's built-in drop-down menu. This app also boasts Tweet Marker support, allowing you to save your reading position and pick up where you left off on another device. We tested this functionality using Twitterrific for iOS and it worked flawlessly. On the Mac side, you can choose how often to refresh the timeline, as well as enable optional sound and Growl notifications when new tweets or messages arrive.

If you're a heavy Twitter user, you will like Twitterrific for Mac. Although it's ad-supported, the app offers a good reading experience while using fewer system resources than the official Web application. It's certainly worth downloading, especially for its sync and local notification capabilities.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Twitterrific for Mac 4.5.1.

"It is okay but isn't working like it should."

 |  Version: Twitterrific 4.5


I don't understand why twitterific and not just twitter except my twitter app isn't working at all at the moment. It launches and then quits.


Haven't quite figured out the concept of twitter. It is convenient kind of but takes me too much time to whittle down my comments in the space allotted. If I sake someone a ? I have no idea if that person responded or not.


Twitterrific is okay when it works. I should be able to sign in, after all it works on my computer, but I go to Login put in my information only to get notice it cannot be verified.
So I just press sign up for a free account and bingo i'm already on and I go right into my account.Not easy to navigate on my phone. compared with doing so on computer

Older version was great until Twitter forced the recent update.


Twitterrific 324 requires Mac OS 10.5 minimum. You have it listed as 10.4

Seriously. This offers nothing if not less than the free alternatives out there.

"No Support!"

App seems decent enough, but I ran into a small problem and sent the developer a question.... not so much as an auto-reply. Use at your own risk. I'd rather support a developer that is responsive to their customers.

Used Twitterrific for the past month and enjoyed it so much that I paid the 15 USD to get rid of the ads. Works great with Growl (all of you who don't have Growl yet, go get it!). Got a swift reply for the developer.

15 USD well spent. Very recommended.
