Echofon1.9

24 January 2020

Syncs unread Tweets with your iPhone.

Overview

The Echofon interface was carefully designed to be comfortably left open all day. It stays out of the way when necessary and expands to support all the advanced features you need, when you need them.

Easily attach photos to your tweets with drag-and-drop. You can also attach screen captures, current iTunes song, or current page in Safari. Echofon uses handy indicators to show which tweets have photos, videos, location, conversations, etc.

Use all of your Twitter accounts in Echofon, account switching is easy and you'll see a subtle notification for mentions and messages you receive in background accounts.

Unread tweets stay in sync with your iPhone. If you read tweets on your Mac and later open up Echofon on your iPhone, you can pick up right where you left off. Never again will you read the same tweet twice!

Echofon has a unique drawer interafce that is used for supplementary tasks such as viewing a user's profile, timeline, favorites, followers, etc. It is also used for people search. This helps you keep focus on the main timeline while pulling up other information as needed.

The latest version, 1.8.0 works with the new Twitter API but something is causing the drawer to slide out with each new timeline tweet - even when the Echofon window is closed I see the drawer slide and disappear. Bug from using the previous version? Also, can the behavior of clicking a tweet be changed? I don't want the drawer sliding out for that either!

To think that Echofon’s version of sync between Mac an iPhone can compete against Tweet Marker is just silly. I’m not slamming Echofon, I actually want to use it. If it had 100% Tweet Marker support then I, and I suspect a lot of others, would like to come back to Echofon. Surely it wouldn’t be too difficult to enable that? But with the developers already having churned some turnover by selling this at top dollar at a time when there there wern’t so many Twitter clients around, with there now being so many alternatives around for cheaper and with these Twitter API restrictions around the corner, can the developers be bothered anyomore? As I said, I’d like to come back.

Been using this for a while because I loved the iPhone version. Loving the SSL feature but now with 10.8 I would love to have support for the Notification Center added, Please!

What good is a sync server if we have TweetMarker?

Expensive. But it is currently the best. Personally, I use the free version as I don't find the ads to be that disrupting, well not for the sake of $20 anyway.

Seems like a good program but I wish there was a way of changing the background where the Timeline & everything else shows, as the default white background is too glaring for my eyes. If it had the same options like Twitterrific where you could change from a "Light" or "Dark" background, it would be better IMHO.

I think Echofon is the best Twitter client I have used. I have tried many different clients, but I always come back to this app. It's simple, lightweight and it doesn't have useless features.

some may baulk at the price but this really is the best twitter client I've come across and yes like few others here I've tried out lots of different apps. It has near complete keyboard shortcuts, enough to get by 90% of the time without ever moving your cursor but sadly lacking in the search tab. there are a lot of unusual features for a Mac twitter client it supports tweet conversation views, in app displaying of full twitter profiles, tweets, followers, following, lists and listing and starred favourites. that's in all profiles, in your own profile it also has a tab for retweets giving you further tabs for retweets made by your followers, made by you AND your own tweets retweeted by others (sadly it doesn't tell you who did it). more unique features include ssl for all requests (secure) and real time streaming so no more refreshing or waiting around for tweets to arrive. It also tells you in the timeline when you have new followers and when your tweets have been fav'd I can't really comment on list support as it's not something I personally use but it does support bit.ly url shortening and it's accounts, plixi and twitpic for image uploading but a wide range of services for image and video are also supported for popup viewing. There are enough options (growl, dock, menubar and kb shortcut to show etc) to suit most if not all users workflows without being in the way. The big feature/gripe is the unread tweet sync, it only works with the iPhone counterpart (which doesn't do it for me) but is probably the reason for the price. I would love to see a tiered pricing scheme, one price to remove the ads and another amount that enables the sync, opening up the app to all potential customers, matching the competition but with the current price of $20 I have to pay for a feature that I'll never use, just to remove ads. took a bit of searching but nothing comes close to this, I'm thankful that I could use it all I like before paying such an amount.

Nice twitter client that fits right in with Mac OSX. I looked at over 20 twitter clients and none suited me to well, but Echofon was different. The second I opened it I knew that it was going to stay for a long time.The fact that it supports bit.ly URL shortening and can open images/movies directly without the need to open a webbrowser is a nice feature for me. PS: The macupdate screenshot is from a old version, the new interface looks a bit different.

I have to say that the latest version of Socialite was the winner for me.
