Hey guys. At the moment the slices desktop beta is lacking some features that would make it so much more user friendly.
At the moment in order to add someone to a slice you need to edit your slices, pick the slice you wish to add someone to, and add them from there. Is it possible to add a function that allows you to add an account to a slice from its profile?
Another problem with adding people en masse from the slice edit menu is that not every account you follow is loaded into the list. Accounts I have been following for a while do not show up.
Say I find an account that I would like to both follow and add to a slice from the desktop client; when following the new account, it isn't put to the top of the aforementioned "add to slice" list. The account I wanted to add was situated halfway down for some odd reason.
Direct Messages are loaded with the oldest being first in the list. For long conversations this means you need to scroll all the way to the bottom each time you enter your Direct Messages, and again after you send a message.
Twitpic and yfrog images seem to load selectively. Half of them work, and the other half do not.
Trends would be a welcome addition. I know it is possible to access Worldwide trends from the bookmarks but that seems to be a "Coming Soon" feature in the beta.
Other than these shortcomings it's a solid idea and may well be on its way to becoming my favourite Twitter app :)
