Solid Twitter app, but a bit buggy with potential

I’m impressed with this app. It has been a very long time since I’ve found such an apt twitter app. The interface is clean and
easy to use, tweets and media load fairly quickly (probably quicker if you’ve a newer phone than mine), and it’s not hard to
get it set up and going. Overall, I like this ap

I have been holding off on leaving a rating until Aviary was more matured as an app. First off I love Aviary, it has such a
beautiful design and is probably one of my favorite designs of any app. It has runs of feature and customization and is still
expanding. I have been understanding people’s fru

ME SIENTO MUY CONTENTO DE USAR aviary en mi iPhone. Soy usuario ciego y este cliente es muy bueno y amigable con el lector de

Huge Potential

Great App! There are plenty of bugs but the app developer seems to be updating the app regularly. If you enjoy an app that follows
iOS guidelines and is pleasing to the eye, look no further. There are also many features that are not provided in the stock
Twitter app that are really useful, like diff

My new favorite Twitter app!

Shihab, you’ve built a gorgeous, intuitive haptic nirvana for those of us who want a better Twitter experience. For me, Aviary
is the go-to Twitter app. Thank you so much for your stellar craftsmanship!

almost there, but still got annoying bug

this is an apple style app, which makes me want to use it at first place.
Exprience is not bad, but still got some annoying bugs in the common interaction.
However, this app makes me happy everytime i open it. elegant.

Great app

Really nice Twitter app. The amount of updates and frequency of them is mind boggling through. I mean, maybe roll more updates
into a single release and release just a bit less frequently to save us download data? Anyway. Still opportunity for improvement -
additional fonts would be nice, larger fon

So good, needs work.

I love this app so much. The combination of food looks, ease of use, and overall care put into the app are enough for me to
recommend it to anyone. It needs some work done with messages and notifications, but it’s fine otherwise.

Keep up the good stuff!

New features please

The app is awesome, i have some points that can make it more awesome
1. Multiple pictures in a tweet
2. Some issues with the links on iphone 12 pro
3. Issues with videos, audio sometimes stuck and if possible you can make it in the background so it doesn’t stop other audio

Big thanks 🙏🏼

The perfect twitter app that gets better every day

As the twitter app gets more bloated, this app keeps twitter true to its roots. An excellent, native iOS feeling, lightweight and
has everything I need. It’s early days are becoming the past as constant updates and feature additions further polish an already
great app into one of my favorite apps. K

Nice Twitter app, seems to keep improving!

I’ve been using Tweetbot for my iOS Twitter app for a few years now, and decided to give this app (Aviary) a try after reading
on Twitter that it’s on sale. Thought it would be nice to use a different app for perhaps a different experience, and with the
lower sale price, I decided to take the plunge

Back to the Basics

I got off Twitter solely because of Fleets. I didn’t realize how much the rest of the UI sapped my time away, though.

I like that Aviary is a “back to the basics” form of Twitter. Everything you need is there, but without all the addicting
clout-chasing UI. Really enjoying it.

Some flaws

My Favorite Twitter Client

Fantastic Twitter App

This is a very well made and modern Twitter client, which has much fantastic functionality. It takes advantage of many iOS

Amazing app

I’ve used this app since beta and this is by far the best Twitter client. Yes it is missing things that stock Twitter has, but
it’s impossible for those features to come as the API does not expose those, but what the API exposes allows this app to be
really really good. Thank you so much for making

Developer Working Hard to Work in Twitter Environm

For those who don’t know it, Twitter does not allow outside apps to perform certain actions. Aviary does a great job of working
around many of these issues and the developer is constantly working to make it better! He is also quick to respond to questions
and comments. Give it a chance!
