There are so many Twitter clients on the App Store that you’d be hard pressed to make a choice. But Tweetbot is the best in our books, and the app has just got a huge update for iOS 7, with a makeover and lots of new features. But if you are an existing Tweetbot user, there’s some bad news — you’ll have to pay to get the upgrade, just like a new user.
Tweetbot 3 is remade from the ground up to take advantage of iOS 7, especially the physics and the multi-tasking. Because of the enhanced multi-tasking in Apple’s latest operating system, Tweetbot 3 now comes with the ability to fetch tweets in the background.
The design has had a major overhaul, as Tweetbot 3 now sports the same stark and flat look as iOS 7. It introduces gesture behaviours that make actions look fluid, like swiping a person’s contact card away.
All of the older features that are user favourites have been given a polish, including mute filters, push and inline notifications, lists, drafts and the ‘media timeline’ of just pictures.
In a surprising move, developer Tapbot is pitching Tweetbot 3 as a new app, not an upgrade to the current one. This means that current users have the option of either sticking with the older Tweetbot or paying $2.99 for the new app — and that’s an introductory price which will go up to $4.99 soon.
