Tapbots Launches Tweetbot 3 with iOS 7 Redesign

by

Tapbots today launched Tweetbot 3, which is a paid upgrade to its existing Tweetbot for iOS application. The app has been completely redesigned for iOS 7, incorporating a new look, new gestures, and new animations.

As with most apps designed for iOS 7, Tweetbot has taken on a simpler design that includes ample amounts of white space, with new round avatar photos. Though Tweetbot continues to offer many of the same features like muting and iCloud DMs, the app has an entirely new feel due to its revamped gestures and animations. Tapping on a Tweet to open the options drawer now works faster, and swipe gestures, which previously opened Tweet details and conversations have been simplified.

tweetbot

- Completely redesigned from the ground up for iOS7. 

- Native Push Notifications. 

- Mute filters lets you block messages from users without unfollowing them. Mute services, hashtags, people, and even keywords (regex included).

- Sync timeline position, direct message read statuses and mute filters between iPhone, iPad, and the Mac via iCloud or Tweetmarker. 

- Customizable Navigation. The last 2 tabs are customizable and unused tabs are easily accessible. 

- Support for multiple services like Pocket, Instapaper, Readability, CloudApp, Droplr, and more. 

- Save drafts, add locations and POI's, attach photos/videos, manage your lists, and much more.

Because Tapbots is allotted a limited number of tokens by Twitter, the company has decided to make Tweetbot 3 a paid upgrade. Both new and existing users will need to pay $2.99 to purchase the app, but pricing will be increased to $4.99 after an introductory period. A revamped Tweetbot for the iPad is still in the works, and the existing Tweetbot app has been removed from the App Store.

Tweetbot 3 can be downloaded from the App Store for $2.99. [Direct Link]

I wish apps didn't charge for an update. I understand games charging for an update, but apps like this? Alien Blue, a reddit app, was a one time buy. It is fully supported by a great dev. I wish more companies did that.


So you expect to pay $3 one time and get free updates for life? This is their job. The one bad thing that apps brought about is this idiotic assumption that you pay someone who has done months of hard-work the same cost of 3 cheeseburgers, and expect free support and updates forever. Go away.

It's not an update, it's been completely re-written.

That requires work, lots of it. Lots of work requires lots of time which costs money.

People have to get paid.

I'll try a "cracked" version before deciding to pay for it again. When devs force you to pay twice for the same app (aka the older version is still functional), you gotta wonder if the upgrade is really that worth it. That being said, it probably is, but I'm not paying head-first. I've been with echofon for a while now and if tweetbot 3 fails to convince me (unlikely), I'll just stay on that.


You're just the worst.

And what if I buy an app and don't like it?

Then you are out $3. I can't imagine what your life must be like once that happens!

I used to love Tapbots, I think I have purchased all of their apps. But many of them are now abandoned (for example, Calcbot STILL has no 4" sreen support). The same story with other apps. Ridiculous. :mad:
