Tweetbot 4.5 for iOS 10 Gets Richer Notifications and Profile Notes

tweetbotPopular iOS Twitter client Tweetbot has been updated to version 4.5, adding new functions for iOS 10 users as well as a few other improvements.

The update, which is free to existing users, means Tweetbot users on iOS 10 will see slightly richer notifications. The update also introduces a new feature called Profile Notes, which lets users add brief notes to the profiles of people they follow - to remind them why they did so in the first place, for instance.

Developers Tapbots explains that Users' Profile Notes remain private and sync with iCloud. To access them users should tap the gear menu when viewing a Twitter account profile they follow.

Version 4.5 also brings improved scrolling and a new verified timeline filter that limits the tweets users see to those posted by verified accounts. Additionally, the app's mute filters have been updated to match accented text characters – so a filter to block Pokemon will mute Pokémon too.

Tweetbot 4.5 is available on the App Store for iPhone and iPad for $9.99. [Direct Link]

$10 for a Twitter app. No thanks.

I'd rather pay $10 for a good third-party application than a half-baked official one, especially when it's for a service that I use daily. But to each their own.

Mate, if you are that hard off that you can't afford to spend less than three coffees worth for an application you may use pretty much every day for many years I'll happily spot you it.

It's totally worth the money in my opinion if you use Twitter enough.
Completely shames Twitter official app.

This is the definitive twitter app for me. The website, and the official app to some extend, are so cluttered and confusing compared to Tweetbot.

When the official app is neglected, filled with ads and promoted tweets, non-chronological timeline, and no syncing between iPhone, iPad and Mac, then I'll happily pay a developer who puts time into building a far superior app.

Plus promoted tweets, which for some reason don't come through on Tweetbot. That pretty much clinched it for me, though I also like Tweetdeck on the desktop.

Twitter is a service that I use a lot and what I paid for Tweetbot was more than worth it to me. It's by far the best client on iOS and OS X (macOS) for Twitter that I've ever seen. If you're not big into Twitter then I can see how the expense isn't worth it for you; it's all about the value it provides.

Where did this idea come from that software is worthless? Software, in general, now costs a minuscule fraction of what programs used to cost, yet people get all bent out of shape because an app costs $5 or $10. If it saves you $10 worth of time, or aggravation, over the course of a year, then it's a bargain. Unless your time is worth nothing.

Who said that it was worthless? where did this idea of disagreeing on price points equals worthlessness... I didn't get bent out of shape, I gave my opinion. People on the internet nowadays like to take things to the extreme, its ridiculous.

There is not an awful lot of room between free and $10. Your original statement, "$10 for a Twitter app. No thanks." implies that $10 is far too high and a reasonable price should be substantially lower. I'm saying, software takes time to write, developer time is expensive, and something like Tweetbot is not a simple thing thrown together in an evening. The price is not unreasonable - far from it. The scale has gotten ridiculously skewed by a race to the bottom (thousands of apps trying to compete on price alone), and the proliferation of "free-to-play" games, that figure they'll trade selling to most of "customers" for raking in big bucks off the few who become addicted. It's sort of a toxic marketplace, and Tweetbot is one of the handful who are still selling a terrific app for a reasonable up-front price.
