Gorgeous Mac client for Twitter, based on the mobile Twitter website. It has a beautiful and minimal interface, a convenient standalone Tweet composer, and it supports common macOS shortcuts. It also has a status bar icon for quick access.

Looks and performance feel like website in a container
I'm loving Twitter & Tweetbot clients but I gave Boxy for Twitter a try. I must say the application feels overall very "webby"; like a website in a container. There are a couple of things, in my experience using the application, which are bothering me and prevent me from staying with the Boxy for Twitter application:
- Tabs are very jumpy, maybe keep tabs always at a fixed position, no repositioning or putting elements next/between to them. Try placing UI elements that are generated for a specific tab below the tabbar since they're only needed if that certain tab is selected.
- Tabs often need a double click. There is also delay in switching tabs, like the page (web?) needs to reload every time. Maybe preload them and keep them active in the background?
- Is my feed automatically refreshed? How about messages/notifications?
So again, I appreciate the work you're putting into this application. I'm an app developer myself so I know how feedback can create the app better and better. Hopefully you'll take this feedback positively and hopefully we'll see some updates soon! :)

A Twitter for Mac client!Cons:
Lacking in features/buggy, basically a thin wrapper for the web application.
It's currently buggy and feature lacking, as with most new applications. I would suggest giving this one some time to mature and improve in quality before purchasing it. Judging by Boxy 2 it has good potential for the future.Eric Jackson has used this product for one day.
