Twitterrific tries to return to Mac through crowdfunding


Twitterrific developers, one of the oldest third-party Twitter apps; Have launched a Kickstarter campaign with 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?

Twitterrific for Mac
The  Phoenix Project aims to launch an application in about six or seven months with a minimum of functions :
  • Unified timeline
  • Multiple account support
  • Compose, in response, and citing tweets
  • Mufflers and mute
  • Transmission
  • Themes
  • Delete and edit your own twitter messages
  • Position of timing of synchronization with IOS
  • Accessibility VoiceOver
  • Keyboard control
  • 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:
  • Direct messaging
  • Read, create, delete saved searches
  • Read lists
  • 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.
