Rejoice Macbook Pro with Retina Display users, another Twitter client, besides Tweetbot for Mac, now features Retina Display support!

Echofon for Mac version 1.6.1 was just pushed to my desktop a few minutes ago, and it finally brings support for the Retina Display, Notification Center, and more…

Changelog:

Echofon Mac version 1.6.1

  • Support Retina Display
  • Support Notification Center
  • Added an option of display style
  • Name and Screen Name (default)
  • Name only
  • Screen Name only (same as previos versions)
  • Fixed an issue that Growl didn’t work in a certain case

Since Tweetbot for Mac’s beta is very limited (only Alpha users with tokens can use it due to the whole Twitter API change fiasco currently going on), I’ve been devoid of any client with Retina Display support.

Twitter’s own app is likely done, and won’t see the much anticipated Retina Display support added to it, so options are few and far between.

It’s good to see Echofon come through for its users. Although, Tweetbot for Mac shows a lot of promise, I’ve always been a big Echofon user on the Mac, and this latest update will help solidify my future usage.

As a side note, the Mac App Store version of Echofon hasn’t been updated yet, but I’m sure that it will be soon. In the meantime, you can grab the non-MAS version here.

What’s your current Twitter client of choice on the Mac?

    I can download the update but I keep getting the message that the update is improperly signed so no good here 🙁

    • Uninstall it, and then reinstall from the link above.

  • Am I the only one not seeing the drawer on the right side anymore (after you click on a user or if you would want to see the whole conversation)?? This is a BIG minus!
