    Pros: 

    Looks like the real twitter

    Cons: 

    Looks and performance feel like website in a container

    Hi there,

    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! :)

    Regards,

    Jeroen

  • Pros: 

    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.

    Pros: 

    Beautiful!

    Looks like an official app.

    Cons: 

    The price. Their should be a free option.

    I won't recommend it as it is not free.
