Edit: Videos and gifs autoplay even on mobile network. Was recommend this app but sadly the following issues ruin its usefulness to me: - It's confusing when a RT appears in your timeline because the name of the user that reposted it is sandwiched between the post's text and media. It makes a RT feel like a promoted post or an ad. The exact feeling I wanted to avoid with this app. - There also doesn't seem to be a way to disable video and gif autoplay. The developer doesn't provide any support.

Was initially quite happy with this purchase. Set Fenix to "don't optimize" battery usage because I want notifications from favorite users. Now a week ago my phone started randomly playing audio, first I thought malware had intruded, now found out Fenix starts playing videos from top of feed in the background. This is intrusive (e. g. at work) and not preventable through app settings, forces me to prevent it running in background, thereby defeating the whole purpose of buying it.
So far a very positive experience. After using Plume (btw, a very good twitter app) for a number of years, I switched for no other reason than to try a new app, and have found Fenix 2 to be an excellent twitter app that feels, looks and behaves even better than Plume in my experience. I can't necessarily point a finger at anything major but the theme/layout to my eyes looks more pleasing and I like how video's play silently when you read a post. So all in all, I'm very happy.
I'm going to have to drop my rating down to just 2 stars because the author never responds to anything. I've had trouble for many months with photos not displaying, displaying for a few seconds then disappearing, or displaying as microscopic in size. And now lately icons, thumbnails, videos and images won't load at all. This issue is affecting both my phone and tablet. If this is not fixed soon I'm going to have to get another Twitter app.
sync timeline reading position, bookmarks between Fenix Android and Fenix iPad doesn't work. I spent SGD 10 to find this out The Android version seems reasonable, but without being able to sync the reading position, it's really money wasted. I was using Falcon Pro which was better featured, but I bought this because it had multiplatform support thinking sync would work No response from developers
Great app! Love the customizable experience and no ads. I've had no problem with the app freezing while loading the home timeline or anything else. My likes and retweets do appear the first time unlike other apps. It's also great at handling threads. The only issue I have with the app are the search results. It hasn't been accurate when searching for users.
No interface is perfect, but this app does just what it's supposed to do, and without the baggage of Twitter's own abomination of an app. Very nicely done. A pause (temporary mute by user or hashtag) feature would make ignoring live storms so much easier. Pretty much the one drawback to the app.
Seems good out of the gate. It took me a while to figure out how to hide media on the timeline; I expected it under Appearance => Layout, but it's under Sync & Data Usage. I used Fenix 1 for years, so it's nice to see the app back again.
No native gif support, takes too long to refresh, no badge to update on new notifications in app drawer. Unless I've been mistaken (and will edit this to reflect accordingly), I'd rather use the native twitter client.
