Muffles vs Mutes

Mute Filters Tweetings has supported a feature called timeline mute filters for a number of years now.  They used to be called timeline exclusion filters. With mute filters you can pick a user, a keyword/phrase or even an entire app to block from showing on your timeline. There are a number of powerful features allowing these mute filters to expire automatically and on Tweetings for iPhone you can even use regular expression filters. When you add user mutes we also sync them to Twitter directly so that if you use the Twitter website you have the same user’s muted, and vice versa, if you mute on the Twitter website they will be muted in Tweetings. The problem with mute filters is they totally remove those Tweets from your timeline. Enter muffling… Muffles Timeline muffles are a new feature for Tweetings for Android and iOS (at the time of writing this…Keep Reading

Tweetings for Android and Material Design

We are great believers in designing to the platform. This means we want to support and showcase the best the platform has to offer, whether that be Android, iPhone or iPad.  This is why Tweetings on Android will not look the same as Tweetings for iPhone. Tweetings for Android will look like a native Android app and Tweetings for iPhone will look like a native iPhone app. Rarely, in our opinion, does making an app work identically between both platforms work well. They have different design paradigms. Current State of Play Above is what Tweetings for Android currently looks like designed, unapologetically, with Holo in mind. We offer card layouts, drawer navigation and if you so wish a floating action button to create a new Tweet. Material Design With Android 5.0 Lollipop, Google has moved on from Holo, which we’ve known since Android Honeycomb, to a new design language called…Keep Reading
