This brings it into line with the latest version that’s available from my website here. In future I will try to synchronise update releases in both places, to avoid confusion…
In particular, this explains what the differences are between software you buy from our store, and from the Mac Application store.
I’ve just released another new beta version of Ambientweet.
You can now switch between the main tweet stream and a view which only includes your mentions - so that you can catch up on what people have been saying about you. Ambientweet also bounces the dock icon and shows a badge when it spots new, unread mentions.
In addition, you can now set Ambientweet’s window to auto-size. If you do this, it will keep the width that you gave it, but change height automatically so that the full text of the current tweet is always visible.
I’ve submitted Neu 1.0.2 to the Mac application store… here’s hoping that the review process for updates is a little bit quicker than it was for the first version…
I’ve just released a new beta version of Ambientweet.
For those who don’t know, Ambientweet is a minimalist twitter client that I’m working on.
Unlike most clients, Ambientweet shows just one tweet at a time. This is a deliberate design decision, as it is intended to just be left running in the background, as a way of watching your twitter stream pass by. Showing just one tweet 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?
