Twitterrific Ad Network ➝

Ged Maheux, writing on Iconfactory’s weblog:

Now you can advertise your app, website, product or service directly on Twitterrific’s expansive network of tech-savvy users for just $100 a month. For that price we guarantee 1,000 tap-throughs – not impressions but actual visits – to your App Store page or website. What’s more, we take care of creating the ad for you ourselves and even provide App Analytics for iOS or Google Analytics for websites.

This is pretty rad news. And at $100 a month, I’m tempted to buy an ad for Initial Charge just for the hell of it.

As an aside, I kind of wish the folks at Iconfactory or a similarly respectable indie developer shop would build out an ad network like this and make it available by invitation to other developers. Sort of like The Deck, but for iOS apps.

Push Nope-Ifications ➝

Ged Maheux, writing on Iconfactory’s weblog:

Today we’re rolling out an update for Twitterrific on iOS and macOS that addresses upcoming changes with how apps interact with Twitter. Unfortunately, these changes hinder the ability of third-party apps like Twitterrific to do push notifications and live-stream events. […]

We sincerely wish Twitter would have offered third party developers a better way forward for our customers. Apps like Twitterrific helped build Twitter’s brand and expand its user base. We even contributed to its lexicon and feature sets (Tweet tweet!) Twitter’s priorities over the last several years, however, have shifted away from end users and toward brands and big companies. We have no choice but to adapt as best we can.

How many of Twitter’s most active users will leave when they’re eventually forced to use the service’s first-party client?
