If you have been using Twitter from passed some time, then you must be familiar with the TweetDeck. This Was the best Twitter client. Yes, it Was, as it’s continuously loosing popularity after getting acquired by Twitter for whooping $40 million price.

So you might be looking for its alternative. Yes?? Then stop searching now as  Janetter is the app that puts end to your search. This Twitter client for Windows and Mac is really a cool alternative for TweetDeck. The best thing that I like about this app is that its layout is built on Chromium, making it quite simple to use with intuitive user interface. You have the option of choosing a theme from 27 themes. If you have good knowledge of HTML or CSS, then you can create your own themes as well.

The simple user interface ensures you to make the most out of Twitter without missing any single update from your friends. It’s fully customizable and you can modify it according to your taste. You can also edit the Pop Up notification settings to receive updates related to the selected criteria.

Whereas most of the apps try to get more and more users by providing the feature of linking other social networking accounts, Janetter only focuses on Twitter and that’s the reason, why it’s getting nice response from the users all over the globe. As of now, only Windows and Mac versions are available but developers are working hard to bring release for other platforms as well.
