Twitter For Mac Touch Bar: Today Twitter issued an update to its Catalyst-based Mac app that brings support for Touch Bar shortcuts on Mac models that have one. Also, it supports the new Sidecar feature in macOS Catalina. This feature helps the app run on an iPad acting as an external display.
According to 9to5Mac’s Zac Hall, Touch Bar support seems to be extremely simple at this point, with lots of blank space remaining.
There’s a compose tweet button and the choice to toggle between the most recent and most applicable timelines. Also, other sections include buttons for launching preferences, composing direct messages and viewing lists.
Basic as it may be, the new compose tweet button is located useful and well. Hopefully, a future version takes Touch Bar support with icons for switching between timeline, notifications, messages, and lists with a click.
The 8.5 update also brings to sort out a problem that would result in the help center opening in a web browser. Also, another one that destroys memory discharge stemming from conversations that are threaded together. Last but not least, they have refined the media player so that tapping the video’s playback timeline quickly takes you to that point.
Twitter last fall re-launched its wild Mac client as a completely rewritten app based on Apple’s Catalyst framework. Although Catalyst allows developers to port their existing iPad apps over to the Mac. Currently, the system is too rough around the edges, and it shows.
For instance, the new Mac client absents some common desktop metaphors and keyboard shortcuts. Also, it may not feel like a truly native macOS app. Hopefully, Apple will continue emitting Catalyst so that apps written around it are much better.
