I am getting syntax errors several times a day.  It makes the app pretty unusable.

Check out the 0.5 pre-release. These errors should be resolved. Actually, to be clear, the errors are happening for a reason -- typically because of the Twitter website or your connection -- but at least Chirpr should do a better job of telling you why there's a problem.
