Since Tweedeck was acquired by Twitter itself, many wondered how the app would be changed. Today we have that answer, as Tweetdeck arrived onto the Mac App Store free of charge with a slew of features.
It has the usual stuff; It’s based on columns for handling aspects of Twitter & Facebook (to a lesser extent) as individual timelines. You can schedule messages if you’re a marketing head or just use it as an all-in-one content house for power users on both Twitter & Facebook. No Google+ integration just yet, but that’s probably an API issue.
The app appears to have been rewritten away from Adobe AIR and is now much quicker to launch, less buggy and crash-prone as well as prettier in places.
For example, we’re no longer subjected to having difficult-to-spot links or hashtags. Now they appear in a crisp blue font.
I’m a big fan of the official desktop client because it’s so simple and easy to use. But for now, I’ll use the new tweetdeck and see if it takes my fancy.
