Twitterrific tries to return to Mac through crowdfunding
Twitterrific developers, one of the oldest third-party Twitter apps; Have launched a Kickstarter campaignwith the goal of getting $ 75,000 to fund the return to Mac.
Twitterrific for Mac was released in 2007 for the first time. But because the capabilities of third-party developers by Twitter are limited, the app was lost along the way. Its developer, The Iconfactory, focused its attention on the iOS version that was more popular; Hence the latest update of Twitterrific for Mac out in December 2013.
The new Mac application is being developed under the name Project Phoenix , which refers to the Twitterrific logo. Its goal is not to have the same functions as the iOS version, at least not first. Instead, Project Phoenix focuses on launching a more minimalist application.
What features will Twitterrific for Mac bring?
The Phoenix Project aims to launch an application in about six or seven months with a minimum of functions :
Multiple account support
Compose, in response, and citing tweets
Mufflers and mute
Delete and edit your own twitter messages
Position of timing of synchronization with IOS
Attach images to tweets
Search timeline (text filter / find)
Open links to other tweets, profiles and media in your browser
As we know, there are already third-party applications for Mac that would perform the same functions; Like Tweetbot (with a price of 9,99 €). While Twitterrific for Mac is intended to launch with a price of $ 20.
As you can see in the Kickstarter campaign if they exceed the goal of $ 75,000 and reach the 100,000 will add more features to those initially presented:
Read, create, delete saved searches
Built-in Twitter search
Fast media viewer (images, GIF files, videos)
Incorporate conversation and string viewers into Tweets
Viewer built into user profiles
Attach text files when tweeting images
Search and suggested users during the composition
To me it seems a little expensive first, since it will not incorporate even the most basic functions of its version for iOS. What do you think ?. Leave your opinion in the comments.
