Have you ever had a moment where you remember seeing something on Twitter, but can't quite remember who said it? How about that link you favorited months ago? Twitter search comes up short. What do you do?
Well, Tweet Seeker has got you covered. It was built with one goal in mind, and that was to help you find your long lost tweets—fast.
With Tweet Seeker, you can...
+ Search your own tweets
+ Search replies, mentions, likes, and DMs.
+ Like tweets
+ Save your searches for quick access later
+ Customize your font (choose from Arial, Avenir, Courier, Futura, George, Gill Sans, Helvetica Neue Light, and Verdana)
+ Jazz up your experience with a custom color (choose from Blue, Green, Gray, Yellow, or Red)
+ Open tweets in Safari, Twitter, Tweetbot, or Twitterific.
+ Flexible URL scheme with x-callback-url support. E.g., tweetseeker://search/[all, tweets, mentions, faves, or dms]?query=[URL-encoded search query]. You can also specify the Twitter username to search in if you have more than one with the optional "account" parameter. Specify the "x-success" parameter to open another app with a URL scheme after tapping a tweet.
+ Export Tweet Seeker's full tweet database to your computer to back up your likes or DMs.
If you'd like to supercharge your Tweet Seeking experience, the following additional pro features are available for purchase.
** Pro Features **
+ Search your Likes
+ Search your Direct Messages (DMs)
+ Add and Manage Unlimited Accounts
+ Import your Twitter Archive to search all of your tweets (see below)
** Search Syntax **
Tweet Seeker provides a powerful search syntax. With it, you can find tweets that (queries are in quotes):
+ Mention a certain user: “@tweetseekerapp”
+ Contain a hashtag: “#wwdc”
+ Are retweets: just precede your search with “rt”. E.g., “rt #wwdc”
+ Are written by a certain user: “from:tim_cook”
+ Contain a link from a certain domain: “link:macstories.net”
+ Or are any combination of the above, using standard search operators like AND, OR, NOT, “‘s, or parentheses: “(link:macstories.org AND #wwdc) OR from:tim_cook”
+ Are within a date range. "since:01-01-2014 until:12-31-2014"
Due to Twitter API limitations, when the app first syncs, it will only be able to retrieve up to 3200 of your own tweets (unless you import your archive) and up to 800 of your mentions. However, Tweet Seeker has no limitations on number of tweets after your first sync. If you'd like to search all of your tweets (not including mentions), you can request your Twitter Archive from Twitter.com and import it into the app.
* Added support for iTunes File Sharing. Just plug your device in to iTunes and you'll be able to view and export Tweet Seeker's stored tweet data.
* Fixed UI lag when entering text in search bar.
* Fixed a bug preventing authentication when an account's credentials were out of date.
* Fixed a bug where the app would occasionally hang when scrolling through tweets.
* Renamed "Faves" to "Likes" throughout the app per Twitter guidelines.
* A few other bugs were fixed but they were so small that you probably won't notice a difference. ;)
