This is a DISGRACE. Kiwi used to be my favourite Twitter client, then due to the problems mentioned here below by Bully28 I pretty much stopped using it. I saw there's a new version, I started my old client (2.0.2) and the app itself invited me to update the 3.0.0; no word about a paid upgrade or anything of the sort. I did that, and now version 3.0.0 requires me to log in to ADN. Else I cannto even see my Twitter timeline. I do not have an ADN account, nor do I want one. ADN is a PAID service. So this upgrade rendered my PAID Twitter client into a state where I cannot use it unless I fork out more cash for ADN. I have restored 2.0.2 from the Trash, but I do not plan to use it. THIS IS SHAMELESS. DO NOT DOWNLOAD.

Kiwi was an awesome Twitter client. Now it's an ADN-client. It doesn't say anything about this in the upgrade-window inside of Version 2.2. It's a different product now and that should have been clearly stated - not only on the developers webpage (which most people rarely visit) but first place in the update/upgrade-window. Sorry guys, but this is bad information politics. I'm very disappointed. This ist not the program I originally paid for - and for the update of my once favorite twitter client I was prepared to pay a small fee. I'm not willing to pay for a program for a completely different platform which I don't use and don't intend to use.

Very nice simple and lightweight client for App.net. There's a room for improvements.

Having switched to ADN six months ago, I'm pleased to see my favourite client app reincarnated for this service. If you haven't tried App.net yet, pick this up and join us. It's a refreshing change.

This WAS one of the best clients out there. MW gave it a huge boost with glowing reviews. Then came this summer. Client can't open shortened URLS in browsers without adding extra code, rendering the page broken. You can't view pictures. What's worse: Yourhead software people blame Twitter. And are threatening to stop development, which is their right, but people paid for this app, including me, and now they are blaming Twitter for bugs. I understand their new version is now free because a) they're selling ads on it, and b) they're thinking about killing it off. Again, it's their right. But how about fixing the bugs instead of trying to bait and switch those of us who PAID for an ad-free version by claiming it's not your fault? Do NOT download.

I love the ability to create rules to help filter out content that I do not want to see in my timeline.

I purchased Kiwi the other day for the MU Promo price. This Twitter client is the best out there IMO. I love the account switching features in this program. It's much easier to switch back and forth between my two Twitter accounts with the tabs.

A very good Twitter desktop application that has become the best with the 2.0 release. Supported by a great developer, this should be on the dock of every Mac Twitter user! Highly recommended!!!

Kiwi is an amazing piece of software, for me it's the best desktop twitter client out there. The price is very good for what you get, and also constant updates. I sent an e-mail to the devs requesting a small feature and it was actually implemented in the next revision of updates. Still I think it needs to support lists ( I don't use them actually , but a lot of people seems to be using them ) Thanks for this application.

Sorry for the double post here, but forgot to reply to the Oauth comment. From what Isaiah tells me, he is waiting on Twitter to finalize the updates to Oauth that are currently close to completion. Basically, he knows the updates are at hand and is waiting so he doesn't have to do the work twice. He has repeatedly said it is priority #1 and will implement as soon as the updates are released into the wild for developers.

Now that version 1.1.1 is out, I wanted to update my earlier review of Kiwi now that I have had a chance to really try the application out and engage/pester Isaiah, the developer. Kiwi is on the fast track to giving Loren and atebits a real run for their money for best Mac Twitter application. A number of bugs have been worked out in a relatively short period of time, which speaks to the commitment and skill of the developer. Plus, having a solid partner in Elixir Graphics creating terrific themes and graphics for the application is a major plus. As of right now, Kiwi is better than Tweetie. Hands down. Excepting the soon-to-be addressed Oauth issues (Twitter lists, proper app attribution for user posts, etc.), Kiwi has all the modern features power users expect from their application of choice. And I don't need to go again into the power features like rules, customizable lists, and themes. Oh, and if you didn't notice, they dropped the asking price $5 to a very reasonable $9.95. Sufficed to say, I was sold when they did that after teetering on the purchasing edge. Overall, Kiwi is an application that is already a leading contender, and has shown me that it will rapidly improve while other big names like Twitterrific and Tweetie stagnate in development limbo. I highly recommend it, as it is only another release or two away from being a true five-star application.

I have really enjoyed Kiwi when using it and it is as pointed out beaten Tweetie at it's own game, however I'll have to wait for a few more features before it takes the place of Nambu full time. With Nambu I don't have to go to horrible sites like iFrog to see the images and I don't have to click on a shortened link to see which domain it will take me to. This avoids Digg links I don't want to go to etc. It is the best looking Twitter app I've seen, as you can bend it to your will thanks to clever thinking by the developer vis. Kiwi themes. I think in time it might win me over when the feature set fits me.

Has to be the best Twitter app for Mac desktop out there. Love the themes, plus the new site http://www.kiwithemes.com which will not only have elixirgraphics themes, but third party themes as well soon. From following Isaiah (the creator of Kiwi) on Twitter, he will be adding more and more features soon, I know he is already beta testing version 1.1 which has some significant upgrades and Kiwi has been out around a month?! That is dedication. I look forward to the up coming upgrades and will keep this as my standard twitter app, who cares about version 2 of that other app, if it ever comes out. Run, don't walk and get your Kiwi app now! Awesome job Isaiah and Adam!!

Overall I have been pretty impressed. Kiwi is already miles ahead of Tweetie in terms of features, and I think it will compete nicely Twieetie with Twitterrific as the top Mac-native clients. My only major criticism is in how some of the features are implemented: it's not always intuitive For example, activating the chat dialogue feature is not overly intuitive. Through experimenting I found you double click a tweet to bring up the conversation. I think there could be a better way (or even an option in the menu or a button) to do the same thing as the double click that is more intuitive. Otherwise, I love the rules feature and the themes. When the developer gets Twitter Lists working I may buy Kiwi outright and dump Tweetie altogether. Some examples for the CSS action options would be great for those who are unfamiliar but want to do more than marking tweets. A how-to on using the search functioning for creating rules would also be a great tool for newer users to get the most out of this feature. Right now the documentation for search functions is pretty sparse if nonexistent. For now, Socialite will have to suffice as my Twitter client of choice (not that this is a bad thing). But I will likely dump Tweetie (so much for seeing version 2.0 soon after the iPhone client release) for Kiwi to be my casual Twitter client (for the times I don't want to be overwhelmed by the beast that is Socialite) once Kiwi gets Lists and some changes to the interface to be a little more intuitive.

Great Mac Twitter client. Easily the best one out of the dozen that I've tried. Seems like there's a dozen, don't it? Just got it today and I'm as impressed with it as I am with Socialite, probably more so because of the themes. I love this app.
