Posted by Chika on 9/29/2009 10:00:00 AM

We have added Echofon for Mac to our Echofon family. You can now enjoy the simple and clean beauty of Echofon on your Mac desktop.

Echofon for Mac:

  • is a fully native Mac application
  • is easy to use, just like other Echofon applications
  • supports sync with Echofon Pro for iPhone. You are only shown tweets you haven’t read yet, no matter where you read them

Currently the sync works only with the pro version of Echofon for iPhone, but we are planning to make it available in the free version of Echofon for iPhone in the near future. Since Echofon (formerly known as TwitterFon and TwitterFox) has been downloaded more than five million times to date, we have to be extra careful in rolling out the sync feature so that our sync server works as smoothly as possible.

Echofon for Mac is free while in beta. The full release and pricing will be announced later this year. You can download beta version from
