Tweetbot for Mac: ready to pay tribute?

My beloved iPhones, I'm not dead, I'm working hard to pay the monthly tithe.

The day I share a story that many of us like: Tweetbot is now officially available for Mac : D .

Many will remember that Tapbots had delayed the release of this app because Twitter made some changes restrictions to its terms of API / Token, to benefit and increase the use of its official app and mobile web versions.

Good thing is ready to buy in our beloved Mac App Store Region 4, but the downside is that it costs $ 240.00.

The cost is a bit high but has a reason and Paul Haddad explained in the official blog :

"Because of Twitter's recent enforcement of token limits, we only have a limited number of tokens available for Tweetbot for Mac These dictate how many tokens Tweetbot for Mac users can have. The app's limit is separate from, but much smaller than, the limit for Tweetbot for iOS. Once we use up the tokens Granted to us by Twitter, we will no longer be Able to sell the app to new users. Tapbots will continue to support Tweetbot for Mac for existing customers at That Time.

This limit and our desire to continue to support the app Once We sell out is why we've priced Tweetbot for Mac a little higher than we'd like. It's the best thing we can do for the long term viability of the product. We know some will not be happy About Tweetbot for Mac's pricing, but the bottom line is Twitter Needs to Provide Us with more tokens for us to be Able to sell at a lower the price. We spent a year Developing this app and it's the only way for us to be Able to make our money back and continue supporting It With updates in the future ".

Ie Tapbots just decided to raise the price restrictions imposed by Twitter. Since it was a product that it took more than a year the launch and only few will ever have, have to ensure that they will recover their investment. And ensure support to those who bought the app, and seek to sell them more capability Twitter.

Another important fact to mention in your post, is that those the still usable alpha release sometime stop working, so kindly ask that we reverse access our twitter account in Tweetbot for mac alpha before that happens , so that more customers can buy.

What do you think? Will you buy it?

The truth is that it is an excellent app and it is worth acquiring, especially because it continues to support these developers that Twitter wants to extinguish.
