Nice Update, But Subscription Hmmmm….

The devs behind Tweetbot are amazing and deserve support for making what I would say is the best Twitter client out there. To be honest Twitter should pay Tapbots for their designs and efficiency of the app. Even though I will continue to support the app as well as the devs, I think maybe quarterly feature updates that you have to pay a upgrade fee would be cool or even a decently priced upgrade charge for the yr. I think that everything going subscription doesn’t make sense when people are starting to get subscription fatigue. I think that yearly update charge, or even every six months not being advertised as subscription but something someone would have to consider and purchase it especially if the features are worth it. Which I believe this app and the devs do a great job of doing so I can see people supporting it. Maybe some creative thought can go into a different model but I’m all for this update and the devs being supported because I want them to continue going with what is the best Twitter experience that they are allowed to make because Twitter themselves took away a lot of the features.

Software as a Service strikes again

The mass explosion of the subscription model is one of the worst things to happen to consumer software. Professional software suites like Adobe can get away with it for the reason that their alternatives don’t have the same market share and integration, but as a third party social media client, you’re already the underdog, and you’ve got more convincing to do to get me to use your product. Fortunately, Tweetbot 5 was a stellar app, and in spite of Twitter’s stinginess with their API for all those years was full of really nice features. Tweetbot 6 brings all of that and more to the table—time will tell how much more—but I’m not sure the added features make it worth it the shift in business model. I realize developing a good application takes time and money, and I’m all for supporting developers. I paid good money for Tweetbot in the past. But at the end of the day, for an average person like me, it’s literally just Twitter. It’s not so important to me that I won’t just keep using TB5 and the Twitter web client rather than shell out even more than I paid for TB5 every year for something new. Perhaps if the Tweetbot iOS and MacOS clients could be bundled together this could be a good deal, but otherwise it’s sad to see one of the all-time greats go this way.

App feels bored

Having been using Tweetbot since it came out 11 years ago, it is an app I use daily and I’ve paid more than $50 in this over years, but new functions and design refinement of Tweetbot 6 doesn’t feel like warranting a $6/year paid subscription. If you can can live without Twitter API V2 features and use official app as substitute as I do, use Tweetbot 5 until it’s dead or killed before subscribe to 6 is probably a better idea. Also, a $4.99 app every year or every other year just feel like more appropriate for a social networking app. Subscription adds unnecessary cumbersome management to end user and I really don’t need a social network app appearing in my already crowded App Store subscription section. That being said, it’s worth noting Tweetbot has vastly better app efficiency, data privacy policy, and if you’re new to Tweetbot, it’s still worth a subscription. Also, if a subscription means Tweetbot will have a subscription across all platforms (Including Mac) for the single price, that will be a big value add for end users too and I’ll happily subscribe. Hope Tapbots can consider.

pretty but too much obvious animation

i like the subtly refreshed look of the app but i’m not in love with how obvious the animations are on my iPad. they’re juuuuust slow enough that i am distracted by their motion. i wonder if it might be possible to add an option to reduce UI animations. perhaps because of the smaller screen size, these animations are unobtrusive on my iPhone. Tweetbot remains the best way to use Twitter on mobile. it’s clean and fresh and uncomplicated and doesn’t waste my time with all of Twitter’s folderol. no ads cluttering my timeline, no suggested users, no topics to follow, no out-of-sequence tweets, just my timeline in chronological order the way i want it. barring my wish for less-obvious UI animations, i don’t think i could ask for anything more.

Still the only usable Twitter app on mobile

We all know the official Twitter client is garbage. Littered with ads, attempting to regulate how you view your timeline, “features” added suddenly and without warning that are annoying at best or harassment vectors at worse. Tweetbot remains the only usable Twitter client. Chronological timelines and ad free scrolling are the number one features, but the added features tweetbot offers are nice if they fit your particular use case. The app is nice and cleanly designed, and offers some nice theming as well. Since the Twitter API change, we haven’t been able to view likes or RTs on our tweets in tweetbot, but I’ve since learned that I didn’t need that additional noise in my life and don’t mind it being gone. This is the third or fourth version of tweetbot I’ve paid for and as long as it exists I will continue to pay for it. The issue in the past was that If you weren’t paying attention, you might have missed a new version being released. I hope the subscription model prevents that from happening in the future. While I agree that subscriptions are hit or miss for people, the ability as a long time user to continue to support the developer of their favorite app beats the alternative of having the developer go under or be bought by a worse corporation. In conclusion, if tweetbot one day is unable to function due to more restrictive Twitter api rules, I will stop using Twitter itself.

Hasn’t kept up with modern Twitter usage – limited functionality

I was a huge fan of Tweetbot 1 and 2 many years ago, using it after Tweetie got bought out. When the newest version came out, I really wanted to support and love it, instantly buying the 1 year subscription. It made me realize how much Twitter has grown in the past decade – because Tweetbot is lacking all the most important functionality. You can’t read through threads – replies appear just as they did in 2011. You can’t even view quote retweets of tweets – which are the most interesting part of discussion in my usage (juicy ratio-ed discourse – where you get to read the range of perspectives on one controversial tweet). In addition, it seems to have constant network issues, and fails to post when the regular Twitter app has no problem. It requires a long press to view the individual tweet and see replies to it – making it slow and awkward to follow any conversation at all. It seems meant exclusively to view tweets in a linear format and not engage in discussion. The only advantage is no ads – which sadly makes me wish Twitter officially offered a no ads subscription.

The Best of Tapbots, But A Touch Outdated

While I’ve been a Tweetbot user since the very first version launched on the app store and pushed it like crazy against all the competitors when third-party Twitter clients were the norm, I shied away from using them in recent years because of the design language and lack of modern twitter features available on the first-party client. What you get here is the best of the best Tapbots can bake into a Twitter client along with no tracking or ads for 99¢ per month. If you enjoy the familiar functionality and design of Tweetbot, you’ll love the app and feel right at home. For me though, I can’t help but feel as though the design language hasn’t evolved much beyond 2012 era cues and would’ve loved to see a reimagining of the interface. While I suppose it does align more closely with the goofy (neo-skeuomorphic) nature of macOS 11, you’re still left feeling trapped in an app that hasn’t changed in a decade. Granted, Twitter’s own app has only recently added changes. Part of me enjoys the cartoonish icons that bring me back to simpler times on twitter, but I mostly wish they felt modern at least. Essentially, you are paying for an app free of ads and tracking and the trade off of features like Fleets and Spaces (and voice tweets and polls). Covering the cost of ads alone is enough to justify the sub to support the Tapbots team for me, but I do wish there would be a reimagining of the visual interface.

Early access, at Full price

Ive been using Tweetbot 5 or whatever the version prior to this new subscription based Tweetbot. Ive had some issues here and there over the years but they have usually been resolved eventually. When i heard of a new Tweetbot i decided to jump all in. Even at the price of admission with the new features i was excited for a breath of fresh air in Tweetbot. Then i subbed with the free trial and off i went….my excitement quickly vanished like an accidental alcohol spill it evaporated in mere seconds. Looks like nothing has changed except for one thing, the subscription price. Im not against subscriptions if the usefulness of the app is warranted (June Cloud owns me for life with Deliveries) and i will gladly pay it to ensure the devs get paid enough to keep working on the app. However i found that even in early access, its just not warranted. So i did was any other user would do, cancel subscription, delete app and re-download the old one. Well thats where I was wrong. The app is slowly falling apart to the point where media no longer plays correctly if at all. When i asked for support, they said i needed Tweetbot 6 to remedy this as the API has changed and thats all good, except you have to pay to use the new version. So im basically left with a broken Tweetbot 5 and and my only recourse is to pay the $5.99/year for Tweetbot 6. Off to the official twitter app i go! Thanks for all the years TapBots, but today i say good bye.

You would think they were charging a thousand dollars

Like many, I’m not sure I agree with the transition toward subscription models for many of the apps I use. However, for something I use every day, the annual fee for this specific app seems very reasonable. Not to sound too old, but “back in my day, we used to buy magazines for information and entertainment.” Meanwhile, for nearly the same price as one magazine I can support this developer to keep my daily information looking nice and modern for a whole year. I just recently downloaded version 6, but have been using the previous versions for years. While I haven’t yet seen any drastic upgrades, I quickly subscribed without hesitation. Again, well worth the price for something I use everyday.

It’s the same app as last version, except now you have to pay $1/month or $6/year. Literally nothing in terms of look and feel of this has changed from current app. Still these giant bezels in the app on top and bottom despite bigger iPhone screens. So no full screen viewing. No additional themes, colors, options to choose own colors, etc. Nothing. Kinda pathetic. For me this is the worst of what a dev can do – bait you into starting to pay for a subscription for an app you already paid for with “improvements under the hood” and nothing else. Updated with new API doesn’t do it for me if you don’t make real changes. Website says some changes maybe coming later. Meanwhile last version 5 hadn’t been updated with any type of changes since that came out in years. Have little faith there will be any changes to function or look. Sorry. Not usually a pessimist. But just going based on dev’s history with this app

Nice Update for an App I’ve Used Over 10 Yeara

Great app – in looking at my purchases, I see that I’ve had almost every version of Tweetbot for the last ten years. I’ve been using version 5 since 2015. So…I get it, I’m not a fan of subscription models. But I look at it this way. It’s a great app. I haven’t paid the developers anything for over five years. They’re asking $6 a year for the new version. In this case, it seems pretty cheap. The reality is you can’t expect developers to create, support, and enhance applications on an ongoing basis at no cost. Rejecting a modest cost out of hand (especially when the existing version continues to remain available and functional) seems to put you in a position where you want something for nothing. Doesn’t work that way.

I prefer the subscription model

I’ve been a Tweetbot user pretty much from the beginning and am pleased that I can now be a subscriber because it is easier than periodically throwing into the tip jar which is what I used to do because … well … Tweetbot the best twitter client and my most heavily used app and I want to show my appreciation. You never hear Tweetbot users complain about ads, or that their timeline is out of order. Those advantages alone are worth the price of admission. And Tweetbot’s developers continue to innovate. (I came to the App Store today to check the recent release notes because a new feature just appeared, and ended up writing a review, which is turning into a dissertation, lol.) I like Calcbot, too .

The best client still has a few shortcomings

This is my preferred Twitter client. The speed of adding to a mute list as well as syncing mute list changes (when you have a large mute list) and position syncing is fixed and that alone is worth it to me. Seeing polls is a welcome addition. Saving a search remains broken as it has been for years. Adding a user to mute list is thankfully moved to the top of the list but hashtag and keyword are still require lots of scrolling to find them. Adding a mute filter now adds it directly to the list so if you wanted to only mute for a number of days you must now find the newly created filter and edit it.

A steal at twice the price

If you’re going to use the bird site you might as well use a client that you know isn’t going to suddenly change everything overnight and make you even more miserable than you already are. And if you use the bird site enough to be irritated by that sort of constant change-churn then $6/year is a bargain to be insulated from it. I’m just glad the bird site has apparently eased up on their efforts to squeeze third-party clients into oblivion—and this is still the best third-party client out there if you just want to read posts in chronological order, like our fathers and forefathers did.

Syncing between devices is troublesome

Tweetbot is one of the few applications I’ve purchased as a subscription, mostly because for several years it’s been the only Twitter client worth using. It’s dissapointing that sync between devices is still not up to snuff. I should be able to pick up where I left off on my phone, and resume on my iPad (and vice versa). In practice, this doesn’t work, especially if I’ve gone a day or two without opening the application. Another annoyance, it seems there’s an arbitrary number of messages that you can fall behind (around 1500). Fall behind more than that, and your timeline is truncated. This could be the fault of twitter’s api, and out of control of the developer.

Sorry, you priced me out

I’m always willing to pay for a quality app and Tweetbot has always been a quality app. I’ve purchased and used it since v2. It’s been nearly 5 years since v5 was released. As a developer myself, I know it shouldn’t take 5 years to develop a social media app, especially when cosmetically it hasn’t changed much. I’m not sure what Twitter v2 API offers, but v5 of Tweetbot has always suited my needs. If this was fixed price (and fair) I’d pay, but I do not support subscription models as a rule. It’s bad business. If it takes 5 more years to develop v7 then I’ve paid $30 for this app. I don’t pay that much for apps. Sorry. I’ll stick with v5 until it doesn’t work anymore and if you’re still pushing subscription models I’ll move to a different app.

Keep going back to TB5

Update: revisited after 3 months, at least no more insipid banners in TB5. Still has stupid UI errors like not listing number of members in lists. The ONLY thing this fixes for me is Translate…. Link to Goog Translate was fixed. Sorry it’s still TB5 > TB6. Will check back in another 3 months, this “Preview” should not be sold now IMO *** To those of you saying you can’t re-install version 5, go to AppStore > Purchases. Tweetbot 5 is still there, but Tapbots added something obnoxious. Read on. So I already said “no”to TB6, too many annoying bugs. I was willing to wait, but…. TB 5 is still a 4-5 star app. Or it *was* untill Tapbots started popping intrusive whole screen “SUBSCRIBE!” banners in the last version I PAID FOR. They could’ve closed off 1-2 bugs but instead decided to do THAT. Nah. I paid for every version until now, but I’m done with this developer. Just because Tim Cook treats “indie devs” like dirt doesn’t mean you get to pass that UX on to previously loyal endusers like me. You made it EXTREMELY EASY for me to permanently drop you Tapbots. No one more bug report, not one more dollar. But keep the rare 1-star review.

Tweetbot never fails to deliver the best experience

Tweetbot 6 is one of the most polished apps there are, never had an issue using this app or even old versions, they’re always really stable. I tried many alternatives but none come close to what Tweetbot offers. Can’t wait to see what new features will be added along the new Twitter API. I wasn’t too excited at first about the subscription model but considering how much I’ve always used Tweetbot and the really cheap yearly price, it wasn’t a very hard decision to make. Developers need to get paid for their hard work so I get that

Almost There!

I think it is a definite improvement from tweetbot 5 but there a few things that should be changed. i think there should only be 4 tabs on the bottom instead of 5 it would make it easier to switch between them when using one hand, for example put the profile selection in the top left corner where your picture is and leave 4 tabs at the bottom giving the option to select which one you want for 2 tabs on the bottom right.. that’s all i have right now, if this change could be made i would use tweetbot full time, great app tho!

Tweetbot 5 is more responsive than this…

I dunno what they are doing with this, but it is becoming very sluggish and unreliable. I opened it this morning after a few days and it just sat there with the loading bar going back and forth forever. After several minutes, I closed it down and reopened it but now it only showed a couple new tweets and that’s it. The timeline was missing the last 3 days of tweets, which never loaded. I went back to version 5 and everything loaded quickly and fully. So I am back to TB 5 and am cancelling my sub to version 6 til I see some serious updates. No reason whatsoever to EVER lose/miss tweets in the timeline.
