Twitterrific for Mac is Back: First Impressions and Comparison With Tweetbot

Twitterrific for Mac is back.

After raising over $100,000 on Kickstarter earlier this year, The Iconfactory today has released an all-new, completely reimagined version of the desktop Twitter client on the Mac App Store [Direct Link] for $19.99.


The Iconfactory said its goal was to deliver a minimal Twitter client, like the original Twitterrific for Mac, but with a feature set that caters to how people use Twitter in 2017, as opposed to 2007.

Only eight months have passed since the crowdfunding campaign began, so some key features are still missing at launch, but The Iconfactory promises they will be added in subsequent updates to the app.

I was provided with an advanced preview of the brand new Twitterrific for Mac over the weekend to try out, and I've gathered some of my first impressions as a longtime Tweetbot for Mac user herein. Continue reading Twitterrific for Mac is Back: First Impressions and Comparison With Tweetbot

Yoink for Mac Updated With Clipboard Support

Eternal Storms Software today updated its popular drag and drop Mac app Yoink with several improvements, including clipboard support.


Mac users can now add the contents of their clipboard to Yoink by opening the app's dropdown menu from the menu bar and clicking "Add from Clipboard." If you copy an image from a website, for example, you can essentially paste it into Yoink and it will appear as a TIFF file that can be dragged and dropped.


Alongside clipboard support, PopClip can now be integrated with Yoink after installing a plugin in the app's advanced preferences.

Yoink 3.4 has improved compatibility with several apps, including Messages and Mail on macOS High Sierra, Parallels, ForkLift, Keka, Horos, and JPEGmini. The update also fixes a bug in macOS High Sierra where performing a dragging gesture would sometimes result in files being selected in Yoink.

Yoink, first released in 2011, is a popular drag and drop helper for Mac. When you drag a file, the app pops open along the edge of the screen as a convenient place to drop the file. Yoink will hold on to the files you drag into it until you drag them out again, freeing up your mouse to navigate more easily.

Yoink 3.1

Yoink 3.4 is available now on the Mac App Store [Direct Link] as a free update for existing users. The app costs $6.99 for new users.

Banktivity 6 for Mac Adds Workspace, Tags, Quick Reports, and More

IGG Software today announced the upcoming launch of Banktivity 6, the latest version of the popular personal finance app for Mac. The software, previously known as iBank, has been redesigned for macOS Sierra and updated with several new features, including Workspace, Tags, Quick Reports, Find, and more.

Banktivity 6 introduces Workspace, a new feature that enables customers to view any account, budget, report, or other view side by side. "For example, users can put transactions for an account next to a budget to see how recent spending affects the budget," the company said.

Tags have also been added, allowing individuals and small business owners to see and analyze their income and spending habits across categories. "Now when a person goes on vacation and spends money on dining out, gas, air fare and hotels they can tag all those transactions as a 'vacation,'" said IGG.

A new Quick Reports feature lets users select transactions and then quickly bring up a detailed report based on the selection. "For example, if a customer were wondering how much money was donated to a specific charity last year, a Quick Report answers that question with one click," the company said.

Find is a new document-wide search feature that enables customers to search "almost any part of any transaction" within an entire Banktivity document.

The app's sidebar has a new feature called Portfolio that provides quick access to the performance of investments. Portfolio's customizable view shows high-level information such as cost basis, value, gain/loss, security price, and IRR, and clicking on a security brings up a complete analysis of that holding.

Banktivity 6 features over 100 changes and enhancements, including more flexible report grouping, new transaction editor with improved keyboard support, new reconciliation process, a new summary view, improved transaction downloads, more flexible budgeting, easier in-app navigation, redesigned reports, and more.

IGG said Banktivity 6 will be released in the Spring for $64.99. Users upgrading from Banktivity 5 will qualify for upgrade pricing of $29.99. Customers who purchased Banktivity 5 from the IGG Store between January 23 and Banktivity 6's launch will receive a free registration code to unlock the new version.
