First-look: Tweetbot 3 for iPhone revisits a classic

Dan Moren | Oct. 28, 2013
Tapbots has revamped its popular Tweetbot client for iPhone with a new design for iOS 7, and a few new features.

However, some settings and options didn't make the jump to the new version. There's no longer a user-configurable triple-tap option, you can't adjust the font size without changing it systemwide, and swiping left-to-right no longer shows the Conversation view. There's also been some tweaks to the way lists work. Tapbots has provided an extensive FAQ fielding the most common queries about Tweetbot 3, as well as providing some information about what's coming down the road.

Perhaps the biggest disappointment with the new version of Tweetbot is that the $5 app (as of this writing on sale for $3) is only for the iPhone. An iPad version is on the way, but will likely be a separate version requiring another purchase. Still, that delay may be a smart move by Tapbots: Those who get accustomed to using the new Tweetbot on their iPhone may find themselves all too ready to pick up the updated iPad version when it's finally available.
