Good Apple Watch integration, which the only reason I got this. Normally use Tweetbot

This is a logical and progressive update to a great app. The speed of Twitterrific is outstanding, the design is, as always phenomenal and the attention to detail is breathtaking. Added features include the swipe right to reply & left to show conversation and the ability to alter the themes text size and line spacing. Also a neat new feature is being able to rewind/forward amimated GIFs.

While this app won't displace Tweetbot on my iPhone, iPad or even Mac, this app is GREAT for just reading Twitter. I need Tweetbot as a so-called "power user," but for merely viewing Tweets, reading, and enjoying a beautiful interface, Twitterrific is a very nice app. It *could* replace Tweetbot for me I suppose, but I'm ingrained in the Tweetbot universe enough that it won't happen. Should Tweetbot fall off the face of the earth somehow though, I would have no problem moving everything over to this app. No "Push Notifications" is missing, but it's not a huge deal for me.

Really? Better than Tweetbot?

Man... it's pretty. Plus, the GPS is more accurate (somehow). Although, I do miss the multi-account design and push notifications.

As of right now, before and after the iOS 7 update this is my favorite Twitter client app. I believe the design that went into it captures Apple's design standards almost perfectly.

Can't recommend as is because it doesn't hold the volume of tweets for my reading style. Always seems to jump me away from where I'm reading when adding more so I constantly scrolling to figure out where I was.

Great Twitter client for iOS. Smooth, fast, and loaded with features. Not quite as powerful in terms of controls when compared with Tweetbot, but it does offer many of the same features: ie. list management, iCloud sync, Timeline position, muffling (mute).Twitterrific 5 for ...
