But that’s not the real news here. After all, the update brings nothing more than support for private messages. Besides, Felix was the first App.net client for iOS that added private messaging, which was introduced to the premium social network itself in December last year.
Rather, the real news here is that, right after receiving said update, Netbot has gone absolutely free.
Yes, from its regular price of $4.99 for either of its iPhone and iPad editions, Netbot is now available to download without charge.
In a post to its official App.net account, Netbot developer Tapbots says that it decided to make Netbot free in a bid to “spur adoption of App.net.”
Note, though, that the free offer is valid “for an unspecified period of time.”
