The best app, hands down
I was lil’ worried once I decided to try it, because of authentication problems other reviews brought up. But you know what? As of aug 28, I had no problem whatsoever authenticating it. Just followed the steps on the blog (Login to Twitter from web browser first, register the acc by “Sign in with Twitter” on Janetter) and worked like a charm. Once you’re in, forget about the rest, enjoy the (imho) best free functional app for Twitter and spend the money you would probably drop on TweetBot on something else.
Sounds promising, but…
I’ve used several tools for Twitter and many of them are quite good. I saw the substantially better reviews for Janetter and dicided to give it a go. It was a short trip. I went to authorize the app with twitter and was met with "This application cannot authenticate more users at this time.”.
No more tokens
I don’t understand why this app is still availabe in the app store. There is no support page for the app but on the company’s blog page they write that there are no more tokens available for new accounts. If you can’t authorize a new account on it why make the app available to new users? Annoying!
The best app for lists
I organize my twitter by lists and I have to say Janetter is the best app on the market for this… as long as you can connect. As others mentioned below the unalbe ot authenticate error is quite frustrating but I kept coming back to Janetter because I could not find another app in the store that met my needs. Hopefully this issue will be resolved, though considering last update for the app was in Febraury, who knows. Still, it’s 4 stars for me because of the very few apps available that really support twitter’s list funcationality.
Connected after second try
I got the same message about no more users at this time, but I tried again a half hour later and authenticated with no problem. Once I connected there have never been any difficulties. I like the variety of skins and being able to sort tweets with the newest at the bottom rather than the top. I start my reading by going to the next unread tweet in a list tab and just scroll down from there. I like that Janetter shows the number of unread tweets in the tab as well as the total for all tabs. The one thing I would like to see is when I read a tweet in a list tab, it would also be marked as read in the home tab. I want to be able to find unread tweets that didn’t appear in any of my lists.
