A great new client has been released for accessing twitter on the Mac OS Desktop. It’s called Nambu.
Although still a bit buggy and rough around the edges — It has a couple features that I’ve been after:
- Native Mac App – Nice and fast (no slow/clunky AIR code)
- Parses #/Topic tags
- Built in Twitter search — with “smart” updating results
- Support for photos (even direct from iSight) and shortened links
- Easy to use “multiple accounts”
- Dead simple “retweet”
- Keyboard shortcuts for everything
- Translate feature
- Free version for iPhone/iTouch
It’s not perfect yet – it’s crashed a couple times on me. But it’s well wort looking at.
