Hi! My name is Cédric Bozzi, I make websites and iOS apps, and this is my blog about technology (mostly a Twitter archive, really).

Tweetbot 2.0 is out *sad face*

Literally the only thing I wanted from Tweetbot 2 for Mac was embedded tweets. (I know, “it’s coming.”) But pretty much everything they did change is for the worse:

  • the sidebar tabs’ highlight state is harder to read than iOS 7’s Shift key;
  • the account switcher now hides the currently active account from the list, like on iPad, which is disorienting because the order changes every time you open it if you have more than two accounts;
  • the indicator of new activity in the account switcher is completely invisible with square avatars, and I doubt it’s much better with round avatars;
  • the inverse-video highlight for the selected tweet is needlessly distracting and hampers legibility (I got away from that on iPhone by switching to night mode and forgot about it, but that doesn’t seem to be an option on the Mac version);
  • the delimiters between tweets and between columns are so thin and faint that the multi-column layout is an eye-searing sea of white;
  • the tiny, low-contrast unread tweet counter at the top of the timeline might as well not be there at all, especially when it appears on top of an image;
  • I might update that list later as more details drive me up the wall.

But hey, at least the half-pixel margin around the window is gone.
