Nambu Twitter Manager

Comments 4 by Rebecca Bollwitt

With practical, helpful and innovative applications such as TweetDeck revamping their memory-guzzling ways the race to provide the best Twitter manager is still going strong. This past week we saw the launch of Seesmic Desktop, a TweetDeck-like app from the creators of Twhirl, as well as Nambu for Mac users.

I’ve been using Nambu all day and I love it more than any other app I’ve tried for Twitter over the last two years (and it also supports FriendFeed). It’s smooth, simple, and runs like a charm. Here’s a quick demo:

And an alternate Nambu view:

I’m really glad that there are so many more options for desktop Twitter management and I’d love to hear a review of the Seesmic Desktop app if anyone’s tried that yet as well.

    I went through the same process. Started using Tweetdeck because it was *the* app for managing Twitter but never loved it. I tried Nambu and instantly fell in love with its simplicity and depth. Threaded conversations. Email-like file structure. Yes please!

    I checked out the Seesmic app but it was ugly. Being a Mac user you get spoiled by OS X’s gorgeous and efficient UI. Unfortunately Adobe Air seems to be a way for developers to port the ugly Windows UI to the Mac. No thank you. And if I can’t be bothered to look at an app because of how it looks, then I’m not going to notice how awesome the features are.

    So I uninstalled Seesmic and am quite happy with Nambu… for now 😉

    Nambu looks good pretty sweet, but for someone like me rolling with OS X 10.4 we’ll have to stick to TweetDeck or DestroyTwitter.

    I have used Nambu for a few months now and I love it. However sometimes find that my Mac runs quite hot when I’ve been running Nambu for a few hours. I have half a dozen Twitter accounts so it may be because of that.
