    Since TiPb and some other iphone/mac blogs posted that Tweetbot would be available in the appstore last night, I tried it and it is awesome! Totally worth the $1.99.

    Who else is using this?

    I also got it but it's nothing special. Also has no landscape mode.

    If you need push try tweetings.

    I think it's cool. I just hate that the trends don't show hashtag trends.

    I really like the swipe left and right. This app is nice becuase its different from most. All others seem to copy each other. If you need push, just download Boxcar. It works very fast. This is their first version released to public so I am sure it will only get better. This is now my primary twitter client for iPhone.

    I really like the UI in this app, compared to other twitter apps. Tweetbot kills it in the User Interface department

    The only thing I think it is missing is showing the user's tweet count on their profile page. Other than that its my favorite twitter app

    I have been trying tweetbot throughout the day, and it is pretty nice. It seems to be really focused on the one thing that all of Tapbot's apps are focused on - user experience. I get the same "just use it" kind of feel from Tweetbot that I do with apps like Calcbot and Convertbot. You just jump in and start using it. Alot of this has to do with their design - there are limited on screen "interruptions" when you just look at the app. Only four tabs on the bottom, and the tweets (along with a small status line at top). In addition, rather than relying on buttons, they use more gestures (tap, double tap, tap and hold, swipe left, swipe right). That means you just start to move your fingers to do something, making you feel more connected to the iPhone (and by extension, the app itself). Lastly, as Leanna was talking about in her review, the sounds are very subtle. They are there, so you get a sense of response when you perform and action, but it is a very low "click" or "tap" sound, not something that immediately draws your attention.

    Now, there are some things it doesn't do. I can't find anyway to click on a user and get their tweets. It doesn't do push (although they say they are working on it). While it does offer some standard options (like adding photos) it doesn't have a huge array of them. You can see photos in the tweets themselves. So for someone looking for a Twitter client that does it ALL, this is not for them.

    For someone looking for a twitter client that has a fair amount of functionality and just has a good "feel" to it, they might want to give Tweetbot a try.

    Gotta admit, being able to use a list for your timeline makes mobile tweeting so much better - especially when you're following way too many people.

    If you already have access to the Tweetbot Alpha version, you can now get the new beta (v0.8) version

    Here's a link to the blog announcing the beta release.


    And here's a link to the beta version.

    But because Twitter is being a **** about the whole process, if you don't already have the alpha version installed and with accounts logged in, you can't activate accounts on the beta, either. Here's the link to that info.

    I have used both, the default twitter app and Tweetbot. I personally feels Tweetbot is better application for accessing and tweeting over iPhone devices. The best feature of the app is multiple timeline and option to quickly switch between between lists.

    The thing I like most I think is being able to search my timeline for key words.

    I use Tweetbot as well as my primary Twitter client on my phone. I used to like the Twitter app but ever since the updated the user interface to the new style I have not liked it at all.
