Karlston posted a topic in Software NewsTwitter launches new macOS app leveraging Project Catalyst It's been nearly two years since Twitter decided to pull support and availability of its app from the Mac App Store in a move that the company said would see it "focusing our efforts on a great Twitter experience that's consistent across platforms". Since then, we have seen Twitter turn its attention to its Progressive Web App (PWA), including a new experience for desktop users visiting the website. However, thanks to Project Catalyst, iOS apps can now be ported over to macOS, although the process is not easy according to reported feedback from developers. While Netflix is believed to have passed on using Catalyst to port its iOS app, Twitter announced back in June that it would be bringing back Twitter for Mac using Project Catalyst for macOS Catalina. Now, for those who have been waiting for an official Twitter client for macOS to return, that day has come. In its prior announcement, the company said: "The new Twitter for Mac app will use our existing iOS codebase, rather than being built from a separate codebase, following the same successful strategy we've used with Web to expand our supported clients. By supporting key Mac-specific behaviors on top of our iOS code, we will be able to maintain feature parity across our iOS and Mac apps with relatively low long term maintenance costs." The app also includes support for Dark Mode and will toggle based on the setting currently applied in the operating system settings and should present a similar user interface for those who have previously used the Twitter app on iPad. If you're keen to download the Twitter for Mac app right now, you can download it from the App Store here at no charge but it may still be deploying to regional Mac App Stores as of the time of writing.

The AchieVer posted a topic in Software NewsWindows 10 Twitter app gets a revamped menu in new update The official Twitter app for Windows 10 devices made a pretty significant change today when it completely revamped its main menu on the left side of the screen. Previously, the Twitter app would feature the user’s avatar at the top of the menu which could be clicked at any time to navigate to their profile. This link has now been moved to the near-bottom of the menu and has been replaced with the Twitter bird icon which goes to the main timeline. A new ellipsis icon has also been added to the menu. This opens up the app’s settings screen. It’s unclear if anything else has been changed as no new release notes have been posted. It’s likely that this change was simply pushed out to the app and official release notes will be posted at a later date after more changes have been made. Previous Twitter updates added support for multiple accounts and the new quote-tweet gif feature. Do you like this change to the Windows 10 Twitter app? Let us know why or why not in the comments below and then follow us on Twitter for more Windows news. Source
The AchieVer posted a topic in Software NewsThe official Twitter app for Windows 10 devices updated last week with a host of improvements but two other changes appear to have been made to it since then. Over the last few days, the Twitter app gained a new emoji picker within the compose box (see above image). When clicked on, this emoji picker opens and users can now scroll through and select an emoji to use. In addition to the emoji picker, the Windows 10 Twitter app now displays whether a user has already been added to a list by displaying a blue checkmark next to list names during the “Add to list” process. Previously, there was no way to tell if a user had already been added to a list without manually scrolling through all list members one-by-one-beforehand. Other Twitter apps have had this basic feature for a while now so it’s good to see it finally come to Windows 10 users. Have you noticed any other changes with the Windows 10 Twitter app recently? source
