Tweetbot Updated With New 'Behaviors' Menu on iPhone and iPad

Tapbots today released version 6.3 of Tweetbot for the iPhone and iPad, with the key new feature being a "Behaviors" menu in the app's settings that contains several toggle switches for fine tuning your Tweetbot experience.

Tweetbot 6 Feature
For example, while tapping the status bar in the Tweetbot app will bring you to the top of your timeline by default, users who dislike this feature can now turn it off in the "Behaviors" menu by toggling off "Tap to Top."


Here's everything in the "Behaviors" menu to start:

- Enable/Disable Tap to Top. By default, tapping the status bar will bring you to the top of your timeline. If this happens by accident and bugs you, you can now turn this feature off.
- Enable/Disable Drag & Drop Tweets. If you always accidentally invoke the drag and drop feature and wish there was a way to turn that off, now you can!
- Enable/Disable Swipe to Switch Themes. Swiping up or down with two fingers normally switches to the next or previous theme. If this happens by accident far too often you can now turn this feature off.
- Enable the ability to Customize All Tabs. For years many of you have asked for the ability to customize all the tab buttons in Tweetbot. Well, finally you can now turn this option on and set your tab menubar exactly how you wish.
- Before, the short right swipe on a tweet gesture was configurable between liking or retweeting. Now you can also customize this gesture to open link to tweet, copy link to tweet, copy tweet text, add to reading list, or be disabled completely.

The latest version of Tweetbot also features additional iPad keyboard shortcuts, a new custom app icon, a new "Harvest" light theme, and more.

I love Tweetbot, but these new releases are starting to feel like Tapbots are re-arranging furniture while waiting for Twitter to move on updating its ‘new' API.

We need Twitter to give external clients parity with its own in terms of basic features. I’d start with: Immediate notifications, proper display of message threads and access to complex searches.

"Customize All Tabs" is the big one here for me. Finally I can get rid of that rarely used DMs tab.

Couldn't agree more. The fact that message threads don't get displayed properly in Tweetbot is the dealbreaker for me.
Funny you mention dealbreakers, the fact that twitters own app doesn’t sync at all across devices is the dealbreaker for me.

Tweetbot lost me as a customer when they switched to a subscription model, and refused to fix critical bugs in previous versions of their app.

Why would Twitter do that when it brings them no money?
