I find Tweetbot to be “over designed,” meaning its user interface it’s too heavy for my eyes. I hear it’s still people’s favorite Twitter app for iPhone though, so they must definitely be doing something right.

Today, Tweetbot was updated to version 2.0, bringing the following new features:

  • Updated timeline view
  • Image thumbnails in timeline
  • Links now colored and single-tappable
  • “Retweeted by” bar now integrated and tappable
  • Cell colors adjusted for better contrast
  • New direct message view.
  • Redesigned “New Tweets” bar (Can be dismissed by tap and configured in Settings > Display)
  • Timed auto-refresh (timeline, mentions, and DM’s will refresh every 5 minutes)
  • Readability added as mobilizer service
  • Much improved tweet replies view
  • Links in user’s bio now tappable
  • “Huge” font size option in Settings > Display
  • Improved scrolling performance

You can download Tweetbot from the App Store for $2.99.

If you ask me, I’ll tell you that I’ll stick to SimplyTweet, which has been my favorite Twitter iPhone app for a while now.
