Twitterrific for Mac

Editors' Review

by   / December 16, 2013

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.
