Goodbye, Nambu

I’ve been using Nambu for a few weeks now, and raved about it to friends, via Twitter and on this blog.

While it’s encouraging to see the developers continue to push out new releases, the instability of the app has lead me to stop using it, for now.

While I very much enjoy the layout, ease-of-use and Mac-iness of the app, crashing everytime I send a message or follow someone just isn’t going to cut it. I’ve seen Nambu suggest deleting the application’s “database,” but that forces me to continually enter in all the accounts I was using there.

I’ll keep an eye on it, but the search continues for a desktop Twitter client that can do multiple accounts, and do it awesomely. First stop – Tweetie for Mac and Seesmic Desktop. I’m ready for my world to be rocked.

  1. I’ve had pretty much the same experience with Nambu after switching over from Twhirl. Haven’t abandoned it yet, but I’m thinking about it. Will be watching your tweets for feedback on multi-account management and performance with Tweetie/Seesmic.

  2. Too bad – the Mac version is awesome and stable. Of course, since it’s free, I wonder how much time they have to dedicate to development on both platforms. Perhaps they chose the Mac side.

  3. I would agree with you. While Nambu doesn’t crash on me, it freezes up (rotating color wheel moments) on a regular basis.

    I have spent more time on tweetie and seesmic for my Mac Twitter needs.
