With the recent launch of the all new Apple Mac App Store, came the arrival of the official OS X Twitter client. Now, although there are countless twitter based clients available for OS X, the official client has entered the charts near the top in my opinion.
The client sports a very slick and basic interface, with the various twitter site features in a greyed out menu down the left hand side, and the main content down the right. This is a design which is certainly not common amongst other offerings in the field.
In an also unusual design is the ‘New tweet’ and new ‘DM’ windows, they are actually separate from the client and can be conveniently placed anywhere around your Mac’s screen. This along with the applications short cut keys can make tweeting whilst in the middle of things in other applications a breeze.
I am, however, slightly loathed to accept and install the application myself, as I prefer applications such as TweetDeck, with their ability to post direct into several sites at the same time. However, considering its their first attempt at a native OS X client – I think it’s a pretty good attempt.
You can download the all new Twitter client from the new Mac App Store.
If, like me you spend most of your life rooting around in your downloads folder looking for that tar ball or zip file you recently downloaded then maybe this app if for you?
The Mac operating system comes with some pretty powerful tools out of the box. One of which, I am a big fan of. The Mac ‘Automator’ is a basic almost script editor which uses workflows to automate common tasks, and with all tools like this they can be manipulated to replace full blow applications.

It really is as simple as that!
I would strongly advise against using this for ‘theft’ of music – if you like a track, buy it!
