It's a great app, and I was happy to use it - but then along came Tweetie.

Twitterific needs to be updated to compete. New version coming soon I hope.

I used to use this all the time before Tweetie came out, and when I got my license from here, I went to try it out again and it only have a few features that Tweetie doesn't. Plus Tweetie 2 is round the corner...

Tweetie is staying on my mac. Can't stand the GUI on Twitterrific, very ugly and no real options to make it better, like font selection and such..

I prefer Twitterific's UI over Tweetie. But it just doesn't have the features that Tweetie does.

Yup, Twitterrific was great until Tweetie. Even on iPhone, IMHO.

I'm using Tweetie too and love it so I don't see myself using Twitterrific. The little bird is cute though.

Personally, I am switching to Twiteriffic until Tweetie 2.0 finally is released and/or Socialite's bugs are ironed out.

I'll be staying with Nambu, the features are so far ahead of this. It even allows you to see images without having to visit annoying sites like iFrog.

Socialite doesn't seem too bad, but I only use Twitter anyway, and Nambu is better at it and improving every week!

with best regards,

I was using Twitterific since a year and then moved to Twiitie for Mac upon release. However, after several feedbacks about hiding dock icon, etc. and having no response, I moved back to Twitterific. I also have it on my iPhone.

Its a great Twitter client, and now I dont have Ads!!

I used Socialite back when it was called Eventbox.  Nice design/concept, but it proved way too buggy for me.  Lots of hangs, crashes, memory leaks, etc.  I've been loving Tweetie for a while, but I will definitely be giving Twitteriffic a chance.  If it's one thing the Iconfactory understands, it's good design.

I tried Twitterific and just can't use it. The UI is a cumbersome to use when you're coming from OSX Tweetie. Twitterific is great on the iPhone/Touch platform but feels outdated on OSX.

I preferred Twitterific over Tweetie ... nicer GUI and easier handling. But since I want to stay up do date on multiple accounts plus Facebook, I am a faithful TweetDeck user on my Macbook and iMac.

On my iPhone i prefer Tweetie, but on my Mac i really like Twitterrific. The whole idea behind twitter is the simplicity, and Tweetie puts it too much into an App. I like it how Twitterrific places it in a HUD window.

A few features make Twitterrific a big hit for me. One is that I can automatically hide the Tweet window when I switch to another application. And the other is that it can remember where I last left off based upon where I've scrolled. Thanks guys!

Tried Twitterific this weekend and now I'm back on Tweetie.  Maybe if Tweetie didn't exist I'd be using Twitterific, I guess we'll never know.

Twitterrific it's a cool app, but usable if you just follow few friends. If you are following more than 50, it could be a pain in the arse receive all those updates

I had previously bought the Twitterific license. I do like Twitterific but I heard about other apps so I strayed. First to TweetDeck then Tweetie. I might try it out again but I'm not sure if I'll stick to it.

I thought this would be nice because it claims "Supports multiple Twitter accounts", but you can actually only be logged into one at a time. So I'll stick with Nambu.

I'll give Twitterrific a few more days to see if it grows on me. But, I guess, I'm just too spoiled by Tweetie. Interface-wise I'm not not sold into it;  I really like the sounds, though.

Fantastic. After a really bad experience with eventbox, I was using twitterific
(the ad supported version). Getting this for free is a great deal. I adore twitterrific..

Yeah, he was reporting a spammer that bumped the topic. The spammer went away, but his notice of report stayed.

Wow, a whopping $2 off. I have never seen an upgrade price as high as 80% of the regular cost before. Especially considering original purchasers paid $20 for the last version if I remember correctly.
