Tweetbot for Mac review

Tweetbot is arguably the best Twitter experience you can get on an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, and now the folks at Tapbots have released Tweetbot for Mac. It's a clean, polished Twitter experience that outshines both official offerings from Twitter itself--Twitter for Mac and Tweetbot. iCloud and Notification Center support are on board, allowing you to sync preferences and read items across devices. You can pick up Tweetbot for Mac now for $19.99 in the Mac App Store. Why so much? Well, due to Twitter's new, strict API rules, developers like Tapbots only have a limited number of user tokens that its apps can use. So if you wanna use Tweetbot, you're gonna have to grab it soon, because once the API tokens are gone, they're gone.

Tweetbot for Mac 0.8.0 beta

Tweetbot for Mac is progressing quite nicely, and today has moved from alpha to beta with the release of version 0.8.0. Unfortunately, thanks to Twitter's new asinine rules for developers, only those who has already authorized Twitter for Mac to be used with their Twitter accounts can use the app, so if you weren't an alpha user, then this won't do anything for you. Here are the changes and improvements that are found in Tweetbot 0.8.0:

  • lots of bug fixes
  • can paste images into new tweet window again
  • can copy tweets on timeline
  • can do ‘open in new column’ (they also have keyboard shortcuts)
  • multi-column swiping and keyboard support much improved. Use tab shift/tab to move between columns.
  • better keyboard support: status detail + many other views
  • profile view: can scroll user information so can see more tweets
  • drag and drop tweets has been improved
  • gap loading works properly now
  • context click on tweet action buttons in timeline
  • did I mention we fixed a bunch of bugs too?

Tweetbot for Mac

It looks like our absolute favorite iOS Twitter app, Tweetbot, will finally be making its way to the Mac. While praising the Retina display of the new MacBook Pro (it deserves that praise - check out our MacBook Pro with Retina display review!), Mark Jardine of Tapbots included an image of his notebook display, and Tweetbot is front and center in the shot. It's sorely needed, too. The official Twitter for Mac app hasn't been update since May 2011, while Tweetbot for iPhone and iPad are both constantly updated with a host of new features. If you've never given Tweetbot a try and you own an iPhone or iPad, we recommend checking it out.
