The folks behind the popular Twitter app, Tweetbot, have just released a new update. Version 1.2 includes a boatload of new features that makes the app better than ever.

First released in April, Tweetbot is the creation of Tapbots. Our first take on the app was that it could possibly be a “The Twitter for iPhone killer.”

According to its iTunes page, Tweetbot now includes:

  • New User/Hashtag picker in compose view
  • View support for Twitter Photos
  • Added quote format setting
  • Pinboard support in the read later options
  • Pro support
  • Custom API Endpoint for URL shortening and image uploads
  • Google/Instapaper Mobilizer support in account settings
  • Option to select absolute or relative timestamps
  • Ability to undo a retweet
  • Ability to retweet from another account (hold down on the retweet button)
  • Tapping on a success/failure message dismisses it instantly
  • Added @username/listname for followed lists. (solves the problem of following lists with the same name)
  • Pikchur image upload support
  • Various bug fixes


If you are looking for an impressive Twitter client app for your iPhone/iPod touch and don’t mind spending a little money, this is the app for you.

Tweetbot is available in the App Store for $1.99.
