Tweetbot, my go-to Twitter client for the iPhone, iPad and Mac, has been updated with an awesome new Night mode, easier account switching, account re-ordering and other perks.
Now available in the App Store as a free download for existing users, Tweetbot 3.2 for the iPhone and iPod touch includes a couple usual bug fixes and performance improvements while adding long-hold on the Favorite button to fav from another account.

The new app also includes a number of other welcome improvements as well, such as smoother scrolling (10.9 only) and faster refreshing on lists and saved searches. And as usual, there are a flurry of bug fixes… Read More

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… Read More

Popular Twitter client Tweetbot has finally received its iOS 7 update this afternoon. A week after Tapbots announced that the new app had been sent off to Apple and was awaiting approval from the App Team, Tweetbot 3 has arrived.
As expected, Tweetbot 3 has been completely redesigned from the ground up for iOS 7—as you can see in the screenshot above, it looks nothing like its predecessor. And also as expected, the brand new app comes with a new price tag… Read More

Tweetbot users who have been waiting for an updated version of the app for iOS 7 can rejoice, as it has been submitted to Apple for approval.
In a blog post published yesterday on the company’s website, Tapbots explain they were taken by surprise by iOS 7, and that the app required more than a fresh coat of paint. The upcoming version of Tweetbot for iPhone will be a brand new app that has been reworked from the ground up.
Although the developers don’t mention anything about pricing in their blog post, it’s safe to assume the new version of Tweetbot for iPhone will be a new app, which means you’ll have to pay full price for it… Read More

Facebook caused quite a commotion last week when they unveiled a new Instagram feature that allows you to capture and post 15-second videos. It was an instant hit, prompting users to upload more than 5 million clips in just 24 hours.
My Twitter stream has since been flooded with Instagram videos, posted by everyone from celebrities to tech pundits. And unfortunately, because I use Tweetbot, I haven’t been able to watch them in-app. But that changed this afternoon… Read More

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
