Description of App

TweeseCake is a light-weight, multi-purpose, robust software suite. It can either be controlled entirely without a window, or from a handy easy to use UI! Some highlights include:

Supports Twitter and Telegram.
Allows you to navigate your file system without ever bringing up a window, or in a very fast, no fuss window.
Customizable global keyboard shortcuts.
Very light on system resources.
Customizable soundpacks.
And a lot more!

The TweeseCake interface is quite simple, containing only 3 list boxes. One to select a session, one to select a buffer, and one with the buffer's contents.

No need for 5 different windows to keep up with social media, listen to music, or message people. It's all n one!

The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver. It is worth noting that you'll need the allow VoiceOver to be controlled by AppleScript checkbox checked, because of the way the list controls work.

Usability

The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver and is easy to navigate and use.

Other Comments

I love this app. I use it daily, and it's majorly cut down on the number of windows I have open on my command tab list, and I highly recommend it.
It's probably worth noting that while it's currently free, you might have to pay in the future. This is the reason you need to create a TweeseCake account before you can use the app.

Hello.
I have several questions about this app.
1. Why does this app need apple script control? Voice over is able to read list boxes with out problems as far as I know.
2. Can we look at the scripts that this app uses somewhere?
3. The website of this app does not have any contact information on it besides the twitter user name. Why is that?

1. VoiceOver reads most list boxes, but not virtual list boxes, which is what the third buffer is. I think this was done to avoid lag, at least when on Windows.
2. What do you mean? If you mean what applescripts does it run, it's just using accessible_output2.
3. Read the readme for contact info. It has twitter, mastodon, and telegram.

Hi.
I tried downloading this app on my mac and when I tried to open the file to install the app it said that can't download this app because the developer is not Verified.
Do I need to create a account or what?

Hi Kushal,
In such situations the solution is usually to open the file from the option in the context menu - I.e. press Control + Option + Shift + M, and select Open from the menu.
It’s the whole Gatekeeper thing.
🤞
