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.

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 3 is ADN client, not a Twitter client. Only you have to read it on a developer's website. There's big bold heading on a landing page: "A wonderfully simple, elegantly powerful, amazingly beautiful way to experience App.net."

asimo, my Kiwi 2.0.2 suggested - from within the app itself - to upgrade to 3.0.0. 2.0.2 is a Twitter client, which I have PAID for, and upgrading to 3.0.0 made it useless. This is not an upgrade - this is a totally different product! This is rule #1 for app upgrade: if the app itself suggests to upgrade, it should state whether it's a paid upgrade, or whether it is a totally different product which requires another subscription (like in this case).

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.

There is a beta which fixes this, and a new version might be on the way at some point.

I admit I need more time for a full check and comparison.
So most stars are to counter-act PRLab's double rant...

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.
