TapBot’s TweetBot isn’t the most affordable Twitter client on iOS, but the download is definitely worth every cent, at least as far as I’m concerned.
And with Twitter killing off its TweetDeck software on iOS, Android and AIR platforms beginning May 7, the selection of free Twitter clients on the App Store is about to become a little less comprehensive.
If you were looking for an excuse to treat yourself to a copy of TweetBot – which costs three bucks for the iPhone/iPod touch and an additional $3 for the iPad edition – you’ll be wise to consider taking the plunge following today’s update, TweetBot 2.8. Check out the new features right after the break… Read More

As many of you may know, Twitter announced a lengthy list of changes to its API used by third party clients last fall. The deadline for developers to meet the new requirements is March 5th, and apps that don’t comply will cease functioning.
As such, the Tapbots team has updated both its iOS and Mac Tweetbot apps today to adhere to the new API changes. Most of the them are under the hood, but you will notice some UI differences. We’ve got the full change logs after the fold… Read More

Tweetbot, my favorite Twitter client by a country mile, takes well advantage of Twitter’s streaming API for instant timeline updates with no manual refresh. It works very well, but unfortunately Tweetbot requires you to be connected to Wi-Fi in order to use the feature. What to do now? Fake a Wi-Fi connection, of course!
3G Unrestrictor has many uses, and one such use is to enable Twitter streaming in Tweetbot over a cellular connection. Check out our brief video inside. Read More

Here’s another nice Tweetbot update for your iPhone or iPad. A new version, Tweetbot 2.7, is now live on the App Store with some interesting new features. For starters, Tweetbot can now open links from tweets in Google’s Chrome browser, provided it’s installed on your iDevice. The app will also render Flickr images in-line, as well as 6-second clips tweeted out using Twitter’s new Vine app. Lastly, links from tweets can also be sent to the 1Password app‘s built-in browser in order to access password-protected web sites without having to remember your credentials… Read More

Do you have lots of contacts in Twitter, but aren’t crazy about limiting your tweets to 140 characters? Do you you use tweet expander services and URL shorteners, and find they’re more hassle than they’re worth?
TweetAmplius is a jailbreak tweak that takes your plus-sized tweets and automatically runs them through Pastie, Instapaper, and the URL shortener ‘is.gd’. The tweak plugs into the official Twitter app, as well as Tweetbot, if you prefer. TweetAmplius provides a seamless long tweet experience in iOS… Read More

A couple of weeks ago version 2.2 of Tweetbot — my favorite Twitter client for iOS — was released to the public.
While that update included a number of interesting new features and obligatory bug fixes, the new iCloud sync capabilities stand head and shoulders above everything else.
One of the things that has always annoyed me about Twitter clients, and by extension Tweetbot, is that there was no reliable method for picking up where you left off across multiple devices. I know Tweet Marker support was there before, but I’ve never had very much success with it, and it only works with timelines.
I have Tweetbot installed on two iPhones, two iPads, and an iPod touch. As you can probably imagine, it doesn’t take long for things to get really messy when tweeting from all of those different devices at various points in time.
That’s where the beauty of iCloud comes in. The new iCloud sync makes Tweetbot a seamless Twitter experience, able to sync timelines, mute filters, and even DM read statuses across multiple iOS devices… Read More
