Tweetbot for Mac 1.4.2 (screenshot 001)

Tapbots has just issued a maintenance update to Tweetbot for Mac which added a pair of feature tweaks and some bug fixes. Tweetbot version 1.4.2, now available as a free update in the Mac App Store, finally allows you to save images from tweets to folders other than the default Downloads folder.

There’s also a new conversation icon next to tweets that are a reply to another tweet, which allows for a more visual navigation and helps make sense of your feed.

The full breakdown is after the break…

When you save images from tweets to a folder other than the Downloads folder, use the new ‘Save Image As…’ menu item, as depicted below.

Your changelog:

  • Conversation icon added to tweets that are a reply to another tweet
  • Added ‘Save Image To…’ menu item so you can save your images to a folder other than the Downloads folder
  • Fixed the issue on the status detail view where control-clicking on the reply-to/in-reply-to tweet overlay buttons could apply an action to the wrong tweet
  • Fixed the issue where opening an instagram video would open two tabs when using Chrome
  • Fixed the issue where some images were opened with an incorrect orientation

This update is free to existing users.

Tweetbot for Mac is $19.99 in the Mac App Store.

  • Does Tweetbot for Mac have full-screen support? If so, I’ll switch to using it.

    Where is the updated iPad version of Tweetbot for iOS 7…

    At this point it will be in the summer when they release it…

      In the meantime, you should either check out twitterriffic (it’s a universal app and I switched to it because of tweetbot 3 not supporting iPad) or install fullforce for ipad. Fullforce doesn’t give you landscape orientation, but it makes tweetbot look native in landscape.

        Actually, I picked up Echofon instead.

        I didn’t like the large magnified aspect of Twitteriffic that’s why I chose to go with Echofon.

        But thanks for the advice.

  • Question

    Is there a way to get notifications from the people you follow with tweetbot
    For iOS?

  • This is a bad update. That conversation icon is only available in your replies timeline. You still have to click the other icon in your main timeline to view a conversation. I’m starting to lose faith here. The iPhone version is a knock-out homerun, but the iPad and Mac versions are nowhere to be seen for an update.
