Tweetbot Landscape

Recently, I’ve started using the official Twitter app more. I like some of the features that the Twitter app has, such as native access to see who’s favorited your tweets, notifications on an individual user basis, native video support, etc.

But even with all of those features, I still find myself going back to Tweetbot 3. The user experience found in Tweetbot is so much more thought-out and refined, and the animations, sounds and graphics are charming. Needless to say, despite its limitations, I always go back to Tweetbot.

If you feel the same way that I do, and you’re jailbroken, then Tweetbot+ will certainly be of interest to you. It brings many new features to the table to enhance the Tweetbot 3 experience, such as cellular streaming, native favorite access, landscape mode, and more. Our full video walkthrough showcases all of the major features.

Once you install Tweetbot+, head over to the app’s settings, and you should see a new menu option for the tweak. Inside of the Tweetbot+ menu, you’ll find a variety of different features to choose from.

Along with the aforementioned features, there the ability to send photos via DM, send more than 140 characters via DMs and tweets, and even a section for beefing up your Twitter profile with fake information.

The fake info section of Tweetbot+ only applies locally, so don’t get any big ideas. It’s cool if you want to play a prank on your friends, but obviously it’s not something that actually propagates out to Twitter.

It’s quite possible that you may be like me and won’t use all of the features that Tweetbot+ brings to the table, but I guarantee that you’ll find at least one or two features that you deem useful. I personally love to have native favorite access, and that’s something that we’ll likely never see in a third-party app due to it being a private API call.

Look ma, no Favstar!

 

I also highly enjoy landscape mode, although it causes the status bar to hide, which is kind of a bummer for those of us that like to use tap-to-scroll to quickly navigate to the top of the screen. (By the way, landscape support is coming in an official Tweetbot update soon.)

Tweetbot+ is a free jailbreak tweak, and it’s a great way to enhance Tweetbot if you’re jailbroken. Developer Majd Alfhaily, who is an all around awesome guy, even says that he’s working on adding additional features.

What do you think about Tweetbot+? Would you consider using it?

    Certainly interested in using this, but since installing it Tweetbot crashes on opening. [TweetbotPlus.dylib reported as the main suspect, as expected.]

      I get this same error. Tried a few times to reinstall Tweetbot and the tweak with iCleaner too in between. Never got this to work. Developer didnt respond to any reddit inquiries.

      • scotchedpommes

        Ah, thanks for letting me know, was about to e-mail the developer. Will still do so, but this saves me any messing about in iCleaner just now. Curious to know if anyone gets it running after experiencing this crash.

  • Can someone explain to me why Tweetbot doesn’t offer native favorite access? This has baffled me for years. And nowhere on their website do they explain why.

    • scotchedpommes

      They’re restricted by the API, aren’t they?

      • Ah, I see. Thanks. Well, that’s so stupid of Twitter then. Why allow to see retweets but not favorites?? Makes zero sense. Ugh, so annoying.

    • CB

      There is no Twitter API for it.

    How about native 1password share sheet support

  • How do you guys like the new 60fps video support?

  • DtownBlogger

    Keeps saying “Reload Tweetbot to apply settings”. Deleted!!!

    When jailbreak for ios 8.2 will release? Tired of waiting now!

  • Varun Soi

    Somebody please tell me about ios8.2 jailbreak!:(

  • I would like to keep using this tweak but every time I open Tweetbot, I always get a window pop saying there is an update available on Cydia even though there isn’t.
