Tweetie for Mac is the latest invention from developer atebits, maker of the popular iPhone client for Twitter, also called Tweetie.
It is set to have a similar look and feel to its iPhone cousin, and could be a welcome addition to the apps on offer to Mac users, being less resource hungry than other applications such as TweetDeck which run on the Adobe Air platform.
The new app has been given a glowing first-look review from TechCrunch. The site was impressed with the easy drag and drop functionality for sending images, and the easy-to-view display of photos from sites like TwitPic - images pop up in windows without the need for opening a new browser.
Tweetie for Mac also uses Global Hotkeys, and the look and feel is very much Mac-like; crisp and clean, with no extraneous text fields or buttons, according to TechCrunch.
The new application is currently lacking the column display of TweetDeck, which many users have rated positively, but it does allow users to open as many search panes as they need.
Atebits is set to launch the new app on Monday with a free ad-supported version and a paid, ad-free version for around $15 (£10).
It's probably too early to say whether it will supplant many of the current apps knocking around for Twitter, but given that it's relatively low in memory and CPU usage, and is very Mac-like in terms of usability, it could have a chance.
