After one year of discontinuing the Mac desktop app feature, Twitter is again introducing it back after establishing Project Catalyst for macOS 10.15 Catalina. This announcement was claimed during the Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference, in which the website said that this project will now be called Catalyst.
This will make the task for developers quite convenient, Twitter further said that this is quite a favorable feature as, apart from the already established iPad quality, it will add a Mac update as well, and also keep the perpetuation smooth as the updates will keep on improving with time.
Although, until now, we are not sure about the number of developers who will be in favor of the app’s feature but is definitely planning on convincing them to do so. Furthermore, apart from Twitter’s plan to introduce its iOS Twitter app to Mac, Atlassian is planning to bring in the JiraiPad app to macOS Catalina.
As per the latest update, the new version will include the variations in the form of dark mode feature, shortcuts for keyboard, opening many windows at once and better-improved notifications.
This application was taken back in February 2018 from Apple’s App Store after the experience of sporadic updates and suggested the users to use the web browser version. Many clarifications were made for why it was discontinued. Twitter explained that this feature was stopped because the website’s main focus was only on mobile apps, and it became difficult for the company to maintain both of these aspects.
A lot of controversies have been arising for the app for why such infrequent updates have been constantly in the news regarding this matter, since the time the feature was discontinued. It is said that the company took around seven months to bring up the feature of Mac app, which was introduced to use in October 2015. It is also said that Twitter did not design the app itself, but rather the company made sources with a digital studio, “Black Pixel,” which is in Seattle.
Now, the question arises that what actually happens with the last version of Twitter for Mac-as per the several articles, both Twitter in Mac and in the iOS parted ways because of the fact that Twitter started focusing more on the apps. It showed its focus more on the necessary qualities-this eventually resulted in the iOS and Android codebases to invest in the business.
The new changes that will be seen after the update are that Twitter for Mac app will utilize the existing iOS codebase, and not be established by a separate codebase. This will be quite successful as this will expand the clients’ support. Because of making use of Mac-specific behaviors with the iOS code, the maintenance will be low cost now.
Regarding the expectations from the new Twitter for Mac, users are quite excited to view a fully new feature of Mac app. There will be better window display with an apparent show of contents, the window support, improved keyboard support, etc. these features are not available in the mobile app, which makes the update more thrilling.
Moreover, several articles claimed that Apple will introduce new Apple Music, Podcasts, and Apple TV apps in macOS Catalina in the coming day, which will simply change the format of old iTunes. These new updates and apps will surely fulfill the users’ expectations. With the new changes, Podcasts will gain support, and Apple Music looks a lot like iTunes without all the extra features.
