Tapbots’ Tweetbot, the popular iPhone, iPad and Mac client for Twitter, has been updated today on the App Store with a dozen new tweaks that will enhance your productivity.
My favorite improvement has got to be the ability to set in-app typeface independently of my system-wide text size preference, as defined under iOS 7 Settings > General > Text Size.
The enhancements in Tweetbot 3.1, among other tweaks, include the new square avatars, the ability to email conversations and hide profile badgets, quick reply (or other action) via the right-swipe gesture and the return of the ‘Last tweet x minutes ago’ label and using a list as your timeline.
Changelog is right after the break…
I missed the right swiping actions from Tweetbot’s original iOS 7 release.
I think I prefer circular avatars after all.
With this update, you can set the right-swipe gesture to quickly reply to, favorite or retweet a tweet.
Here’s changelog for Tweetbot version 3.1
– Using a list as your timeline is back (hold down on “Timeline” title to reveal the menu)
– Right swipe to quick reply (short swipe and release for custom action)
– Resize text within the app (Settings > Display)
– Option to set square avatars and hide timeline badges (Settings > Display)
– Email conversations or share via Storify
– “Last tweet x minutes ago” is back in the profiles (under recent images)
– Removed “Retweeted by” string so there’s less chance of truncation
Night mode will be implemented soon, Tapbots assures us.
Night mode will be out soon, there’s close to 1,000 different colors in Tweetbot, its not just a matter of inverting them.

As per usual, Tweetbot 3.1 contains “lots of bug fixes” as well.
Iconfactory earlier this morning updated its excellent Twitterrific app (a $2.99 universal binary download on the App Store) with cleaned up profile pages, new pull-to-refresh animation, noticeable performance enhancements and a few other tweaks.
We’re still working on getting Tweetbot’s Night Theme to look just right. Expect it in the next update.

Unfortunately, Tweetbot for iPad has remained stuck with pre-iOS 7 look and wasn’t updated with today’s new features. If you’re on iOS 6, a new Tweetbot 2 update for the iPhone and iPod touch is now available on the App Store with bug fixes.
