Tweetings, a notable iOS client for — what else? — Twitter, has recently been updated with a new feature you won't want to miss. Actually, it's a new feature that may prove useful if you don't want to miss any tweets from certain users you follow on Twitter. Twitter's official iPhone client introduced this feature as part of its huge update a couple of weeks ago. And now, Tweetings has followed suit with its own implementation of selective push notifications. To get notified every time a selected user posts a tweet, just go to the user's profile, tap the padlock icon, and tap "Enable Push for Tweets." Note that this feature works for non-protected users only. Even protected users whom you follow already are not supported by this feature. Not counting the obligatory bug fixes, that's pretty much the only change for the app's iPhone version. But for the app's iPad version, the ability to enable or disable retweets from a user's profile has also been added. Improvements to the in-app photo editor and other minor changes are also included in the update. Tweetings for iPhone and Tweetings HD for iPad are available in the App Store for $2.99 each. We're big fans of Tweetbot, both on iPhone and on iPad, here at AppAdvice. But we do acknowledge Tweetings's potential as a feature-rich Twitter client.
