In cursul acestei zile dezvoltatorii aplicatiei Tweetbot pentru platforma iOS au lansat o versiune alpha a aplicatiei pentru Mac OS X. Aceasta versiune a aplicatiei reprezinta un build care are probleme de functionalitate, nefiind testat corespunzator de catre dezvoltatorii sai, insa partea buna este ca puteti instala gratuit aplicatia pe Mac-urile voastre. Tweetbot este un client Twitter avansat care va pune la dispozitie o serie intreaga de functii cu ajutorul carora va puteti administra intr-un mod extrem de intuitiv contul de pe celebra retea de socializare.
Deocamdata puteti descarca gratuit Tweetbot pentru Mac urmand acest link, insa trebuie sa va asteptati la multe probleme de functionalitate.
So what can I expect from this alpha?
Bugs! Lots of them.
Don’t say we didn’t warn you. Sending us bug and crash reports will help us out a lot. You can do so by hitting “Send Feedback” from the Help menu in Tweetbot for Mac.
We’ve been focusing on replicating the core features of our iOS versions. Features like multiple windows will be coming in the future. You can open a new window by hitting command-shift-n, but rest assure it will be much more elegant in the future.
Disturbing graphics and performance issues.
Okay, not disturbing to most of you, but some designers can get pretty disgusted by the slightest mis-aligned pixel. Don’t be alarmed, we plan on making everything as beautiful and pixel perfect as we can. Throwing things on the canvas is just part of our process. And no, the egg icon isn’t the final icon. It was thrown together for alpha/beta purposes. We also spend most of our time optimizing performance towards the end of development.
This is a public alpha so run it at your own risk. When you run into issues, we’d love it if you would send us a report. However we can’t respond or spend time helping you get things up and running or else we’ll end up spending time with support and not getting the app done.
No Notification Center or iCloud support (in the alpha/beta).
There’s no way we can offer them until the app is signed and goes through the app store. They will work in the shipping product.
Updates and Expiring alpha/betas.
Updates will be automatically pushed out to you. We suggest you install them as each new build will fix bugs and possibly add new functionality. Old builds will also expire after a certain period of time.
