Tweetbot – the full-featured iPhone Twitter client from the marvelous folks at Tapbots – was released on the App Store last night. It looks like it’s an instant hit – every review I’ve seen so far is glowing. 9to5Mac says it’s the best Twitter client since sliced bread. John Gruber is a big fan …
I’ve tried every iPhone Twitter client in the App Store, and Tweetbot is my favorite, hands-down.
I posted a quick tweet a little while ago saying it looks good and immediately got back several replies along the lines of ‘damn straight it does’. I’ve only just installed it this morning, but it really does look and feel great. Here are some of its notable features:
◆ Multiple Timelines. Quickly switch between your lists as your main timeline.
◆ Smart Gestures. Use Twitter more efficiently with time-saving and configurable gestures.
◆ Customizable Navigation. The last 2 tabs are customizable and unused tabs are easily accessible.
◆ Support for multiple services like Read it Later, Instapaper, Cloudapp URL Shortening.
◆ Push Notifications via Boxcar.
◆ Save drafts, add locations and POI’s, attach photos and videos, manage your lists, and much more.
For those of us who use Pastebot and some of the other lovely apps made by Tapbots, expectations for Tweetbot were always very high. As a very quick first impression, I’d say the app is living up to those lofty expectations.
What do you all think? Have you tried Tweetbot? If so, loving, hating, replacing other iPhone Twitter apps?
Here’s an App Store link for Tweetbot; it’s priced at $1.99.
