I always support the idea of alternatives to default apps. I think competition is important for creativity. However, I find this has too many compromises from the default app. So I'm switching back. I find I'm not getting consistent notifications, and, more annoyingly, it doesn't list the number of responses to a tweet. For me, these are reasons to switch back. If they are addressed in the future I'd look again. I like how fast it is, and how tailorable the interface is.

Fenix has an extensive buffer, where you can go to bed, wake up the next day and be able to catch up on your timeline. But, it could use the ability to hide retweets from the timeline as that's about 60% of what I see. Additionally, I noticed that it doesn't handle 4K photos very well. Something I found when I saved a picture, then later on saw that there was a larger photo that didn't get saved. Also the Bookmarks option doesn't seem to work properly. The ability to save videos is a good thing that it has for it. Also not seeing ads are a very bonus of it.

I'm so glad I found this app. I had been a staunch user of Tweetcaster Pro since 2014, and I was heartbroken when it started having performance issues starting a few months ago and realizing the devs no longer seemed to update it anymore. Fenix is an elegant experience and arranges the feed chronologically without having to dig into the deep recesses of the settings. While definitely not app-breaking, the ability to mute and trying to view a user's (or my own) tweets could be a bit easier.
