Twitterrific: Buy or No?

Posted by: | Comments (0)

I’ve been using Twitterrific lately to keep up with my Mac Tweets.  The free version shows ads for stuff I never knew existed.  Now I’m thinking I should keep the free version to keep up with new technology!  Seems to be a great product.  It works as advertised, is easy to use, and is one of the most unobtrusive messaging clients I’ve ever used.

While I’m at it, as a promoter of computer operation “through the keyboard”, here, from the Iconfactory web site, is the official list of keyboard commands.  It should be especially helpful to Mac users who access their computers through screen reading technology and keyboard navigation.
Keyboard Shortcuts
