Accessibility Comments

For the most part, this app is quite accessible with VoiceOver. However, re-ordering tabs is hit-and-miss, and there are some reported issues with profiles and following/unfollowing users. It is also worth noting that, for the best experience, VoiceOver users should disable inline images and timeline separators in the app's settings.

VoiceOver Performance

VoiceOver reads most page elements.

Button Labeling

Most buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability

There are some minor accessibility issues with this app, but they are easy to deal with.

Other Comments

Despite the accessibility issues noted above, Tweetings is fast becoming my go-to Twitter client.

Hello everyone!

Today Tweetings 2, a popular and accessible Twitter client app, integrated Fleksy SDK.
We wanted to take a moment and note what this means for the VoiceOver community, in ways that will become apparent in the coming days:

- This is the first fully accessible integration using our main Fleksy app (not the VoiceOver version).
- It is the first visible evidence of us restoring full accessibility into our main app and SDK. More to come in this area.
- Tweetings supports 10 languages, including English, German, French, Italian, Dutch, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Turkish and Greek. Most of these languages have never been released for Fleksy VoiceOver users before. We’ve put a lot of work to introduce so many new languages, for all our users.
- The Tweetings team have done an awesome job making their own app accessible, so we recommend you try it.
- All apps that integrate Fleksy SDK going forward will be equally accessible!
- To enable Fleksy in Tweetings 2 – and all upcoming apps that integrate the latest version of Fleksy SDK – follow the helpful AppleVis guide created by awesome Fleksy user @JaffaStar (or Paula in AppleVis): http://www.applevis.com/guides/ios-ios-apps-iphone-voiceover/enabling-f…

You will be seeing more updates for Fleksy VoiceOver users in the coming weeks and months, so stay tuned!

The latest update makes some accessibility improvements:

What's New in Version 2.5.5
  • Accessibility fixes on lists, tweet views and compose

I just started using¬ this app, at version 2.12.3. I don't know about older versions, but it's now a very nice app with VoiceOver: you can swipe up or down on tweets for quick actions, double tap a tweet to see not just the text but the content of a link in that tweet, and more. It's not perfect--tab sorting doesn't work, and you should disable inline images--but it makes managing tweets and reading tweeted articles very efficient. New users should be advised that the lite version lacks not just push notifications, but a range of customization options and Twitter list support as well.

I purchased the latest version of this app. I also had help setting up the options for this particular app. But, I notice that every single time I open this app, it kicks me out and back to my apps in my folder. But, in the app switcher when I look, it's opened. Also, I noticed as well, I set the sound to a certain one and it doesn't play. I know Toonhead helped me with the sound problem. But, here lately, it went back to it's default sound even though that's not the sound selected. The long chirp sound is selected. I've tried to speak to them via Twitter. I tried to open this app on my 64 gb IPod and it opened successfully. I have 1 GB left on my 16 GB IPod touch. I spoke to apple yesterday about this problem and the gentleman I spoke to said, it couldn't be the IPod. I'm a bit confused on this. I have tried to reboot the IPod to get the sounds to work. Nothing has worked to get it to cooperate again. I am running the latest version of the IOS.

Hi all
I have a problem: I've turned the push notifications in the tweetings app on and in my notification settings is everything okay. But when I'm outside of the app I don't get any notificatios. I just get notifications from the normal Twitter app but not for tweetings.
Please help!

While Tweetings has worked well for me on my 5th Gen iPod Touch, I too have experienced the crashing issue. I once wrote to the developer via Twitter and asked them about it, and was told to just reinstall the app again. I did that, set up the options, the app worked fine for awhile, then here we go again. I finally got so annoyed with this process that I've just now removed it for good.

Hi, I got this app today, and overall, I really like it, great interface, great sounds, all simply great. However, the one issue I'm having, is one that has been pointed out a while ago, and that is the issue of push notifications not coming through, even though they're all enabled. Considering from what I heard this issue has been around for quite sometime, I was wondering if anyone contacted the developers about that, or knows how to make the notifications work properly? Cheers,
Hubert

was looking at this app out of curiosity even though I use twitterrific and get on well with it always nice to keep an eye on the competition, I can't see any real advantage of switching away from twitterrific.
But as to notifications and streaming, certainly at least with twitterrific streaming only works if you have the app in focus and you certainly don't get notifications for new tweets being posted, you do for dms and mentions but streaming only works if twitterrific is focused, though other notifications work even if the app is closed and not focused. I assume its probably the same for tweetings.
I would love a twitter client that would actually notify me when a tweet is posted like I can have chicken nugget do under windows.
are there any real advantages to tweetings over twitterrific? either in terms of features or accessibility?
I think streaming tweets is kind of pointless as at least with twitterrific you have to be on wifi, and also VoiceOver doesn't read new tweets automatically as the stream in so not only do you have to have the app in focus to get played a sound when a new tweet streams in but you have to manually flick to read it, this is in twitterrific though.

Streaming is still broken on tweetings, the dev cannot reproduce this by the way. Basically your api calls run out in about 30 seconds.

I love the scheduling and split tweets and tweet storm of tweetings I have since taken Twitterrific off of my phone. It's a shame the mac app for tweetings has not ben updated since 2014. It's a web interface which sucks, it should in theory be a list view as that's easier to look at, but oh well.

Hi folks. Firstly, I love this app. It's phenomenal but people need to clarify what they mean by push notifications. Tweetings certainly gives you the ability to receive push notifications such as follows, mentions and responses to tweets or direct messages that you send. However, where tweetings falls down is that, unlike the official twitter client, you cannot receive notifications when people you specify and follow on your timeline tweet. I have been in touch with the developer about this over the weekend and it seems that due to the way in which IOS permissions work, this feature does not exist and nor is it likely to. So, unfortunately, the way I deal with this is to simply have the native twitter client on my phone to alert me to notifications and then I use tweetings to respond. It's clumsy I know but unfortunately this is the only way.

Secondly, I wonder if someone can provide me with a bit of help. I'm trying to create a filter so that I do not see tweets in my timeline for a certain user. This pertains to a certain game which i'm sure we can all work out what it is. I play the game myself and I know why people tweet their losses and wins but frankly, I don't need to see them in my timeline. As far as I know I've set up my filter correctly. The scopes were set to all which means all timelines as far as I'm awear but I'm still seeing the tweets. I'm not seeing them from the client but I'm seeing them whenever someone posts and mentions them. I have tried turning off all and ticking home and mentions to see if this does the trick though I would have thought that having the all button would solve the problem. At least that's what Tweetings seems to imply. If someone knows different I'd appreciate some tips.

Cheers.

Wow does so does the tweeting music, work with Spotify as well? That sounds intriguing! I've seen that option within the Post Tweet options, but didn't know what it did. Thanks for enlightenment.
