Minimalist Twitter client.

Overview

Ambientweet is a minimalist Twitter client, and it is intended to just be left running in the background, as a way of watching your Twitter stream pass by.

Ambientweet shows just one tweet at a time. This is a deliberate design decision, which allows for a minimal user interface. This, in turn, means that the text can be bigger and there's no need for extraneous clutter like toolbars or buttons whilst you watch the twitter world go by.

You can use Ambientweet to post, reply and re-tweet, so it's perfectly adequate for adding to your stream and responding to what you read. What it doesn't include is lots of complicated functionality for viewing profiles, following people, managing lists and accounts, and so on. The Twitter website is great at that stuff, so why try to replicate it?

What's new in Ambientweet

Version 1.2:
  • Added support for multiple windows, each of which can be viewing a different timeline.
  • Moved window options out of preferences, into the menus, so that they can be set on a per-window basis.

I was so close to congratulating them to avoid the MacUpdate hook: "I've added a page to the Elegant Chaos website which lists the latest available beta versions of our software. I'd like to avoid having people accidentally download betas without realising that they are getting untested software, so the main product pages will always link to the latest release version." Then, I checked back...

This looks promising. I like how it animates through my tweets! :) Bugs Found: - It did show "No Tweets to show" for a few seconds and showed (null) when pressing the reply button, which shouldn't be enabled at that stage Suggestions: - I like the animated tweet mode, but there should also be a way of viewing all the Tweets I have. Sometimes you just want to scan them quickly and don't have 5 minutes time until it finally animated through all of today's feeds. - The "reply" window doesn't fit to the main application, the UI is too different. Please add some consistency with this. Continue innovating - looks very promising so far! :)
