Popular Twitter Client Tweetbot Coming to the Mac

NewImage
The massively popular Tweetbot iOS Twitter client is coming to the Mac, with development of the app well underway, according to a tweet by Tapbots designer Mark Jardine.

Tweetbot, a favorite of Twitter power users, arrived on the iPad earlier this year, after becoming one of the most popular Twitter clients on the iPhone.

It is probably also worth mentioning that both @tapbot_paul and @markjardine have been posting from 'Tweetbot for Mac' for a few days.

Holy crap...just noticed Paul Haddad's last tweet. It was from Tweetbot for the Mac.

Sorry Osfoora....I've got a new girl coming.

I own Tweetbot for iPad and iPhone. But do tell me, why should I get it for Mac, and what advantage would it serve over the Twitter for Mac client?


iCloud sync of setting, far better mute features, Tweetmarker and a far better interface.

Well I use their app on my iPhone and iPad, why would I need this for the desktop? The version I get from my browser at the website is good. In fact, I don't understand these desktop apps like Evernote and Reeder that need a dedicated app instead of just a tab in the browser.


Ability to use custom short URL service, custom image hosting, custom video hosting, sync tweets between devices. None of these things can be done with Twitter's web app.

UI is a bit too similar to the main Twitter client is it not?


You can't really judge a Tapbot app by appearance because where they excel at is all those "little" tweaks that add up to a great experience.

When I heard Tapbots was making a Twitter app my eyes rolled. Not another twitter app.

I had tried Twitterific, Twitilator, Twitter Official, Tweetie and Osfoora and the one that to me just seems to offer the right blend of features, performance and UI is Tweetbot.

I'm buying the Mac version day 1

I have Osfoora. This should be good. He didn't reply.

A client that is actually updated (Twitter has no desire to update the Mac or iPad app, apparently).


Twitter likes to update the app to remove features that were in Tweetie.
