Tapbots Launches Tweetbot 3 for Mac With Redesigned Interface, New Features

Tapbots is today launching Tweetbot 3, a new and updated version of its popular Tweetbot for Mac app. Tweetbot 3 features a revamped interface that was rewritten from the ground up for the Mac. Compared to Tweetbot 2, the new app features a cleaner interface with more white space, persistent icons for replying, retweeting, liking, profile options, and more, and an overall cleaner look. With the new timeline design, there are single-click tools for muting an account, blocking an account, or filing a report with Twitter so there is no need to go to a person's profile or open a profile in Safari to perform these tasks. When viewing details for a particular tweet, there are now persistent icons that enable one-click replies, retweets, and likes for existing replies without needing to hover over the tweet. At the left side of the app, there's a collapsible side bar that offers easier access to your follower count, lists, direct message conversations, and profile options. While the bar is expanded by default, pulling it to the left will collapse it back down so it's similar to the current Tweetbot 2 interface. The new one-click button for composing a tweet is now located at the bottom right of the app rather than the top right, and it offers quick access to images, location, and emojis. Mentions and Activity notifications have been merged into one single "Notifications" tab, but there's still an option to view these separately if so desired. It's much easier to work with multiple columns in the new version of the app. Rather than clicking and choosing "open

Tweetbot for Mac Updated With Ability to Send Photos in Direct Messages, Username Reply Changes

Tweetbot for Mac has been updated with support for a number of changes that Twitter has introduced in recent months. The most notable change is that users can now send images within Direct Messages, in line with official Twitter platforms. Clicking on the new camera button to the left of the message field within a Direct Message brings up a Finder window for selecting images, which are displayed in-line within the conversation. Meanwhile, when replying to a Tweet, the usernames of the people you are replying to no longer count against Twitter's 140-character limit. Tweetbot still provides the option to do a "classic" reply, where usernames are included within the Tweet, by holding down the Control key while clicking the Reply button. The app's developer Tapbots has also fixed an issue where a fullscreen Tweetbot window may not have resized when a Mac's screen resolution changed, fixed a potential crasher when viewing collections for a user that had a large number of collections, and fixed an image-related issue in tweet detail view. Tweetbot for Mac version 2.5 is a free update on the Mac App Store [Direct Link] for existing users. The app initially costs

Tweetbot for Mac Updated With Support for macOS Sierra and Extended Tweets

Following the release of macOS Sierra moments ago, Tweetbot for Mac has been updated with support for the latest operating system. The update also includes support for extended tweets, uploading videos up to 140 seconds long to Twitter, and better media previews for search results. In terms of extended tweets, Twitter no longer counts photos, videos, GIFs, polls, and quote tweets towards its 140-character limit. Previously, media content took up approximately 24 of the 140 available characters, and older versions of Tweetbot still enforce the 140 character limit accordingly. Tweetbot for Mac version 2.4.2 is available now as a free update [Direct Link] for existing users on the Mac App Store. The app initially costs

Tweetbot 2 for Mac Launches With OS X Yosemite Redesign and New Features

Following several months of development, Tapbots today released Tweetbot 2 for Mac with a major visual overhaul inspired by the flat design of OS X Yosemite and more consistent with the iPhone version of the Twitter client. Tweetbot 2 for Mac is available as a free update through the Mac App Store for existing Tweetbot users and has been discounted to $12.99 from its regular $19.99 price for the first time ever. Tweetbot 2 for Mac (left) compared to original Tweetbot for Mac (right) The major visual changes in Tweetbot 2 for Mac include flatter tabs and controls, redesigned user profiles with a new "Recent Photos" section, a new iOS-like user interface when clicking on or viewing the details of individual tweets, circular profile photos, profile photos for retweets and iMessage-like chat bubbles for direct messages. Overall, the software has a more simplified and clean appearance. Tweetbot 2 for Mac also features a new timeline search option, verified account badges and improved list organization. There is a new three-pane toggle in the bottom-left corner that makes it much more convenient to open lists in a new window or column, view all of your lists or search Twitter. A list can easily be removed or detached into a separate window by right clicking its title bar at the top. My first impressions of Tweetbot 2 are overwhelmingly positive, as the updated Twitter client has provided a faster and more fluid experience during my testing. The original version of Tweetbot for Mac would occasionally crash on me, and resizing the app would sometimes result in

'Tweetbot 2' Yosemite Update in the Works, Will Be Available for Free

Tapbots, the company behind the popular Tweetbot Twitter client, today tweeted a tantalizing preview image of Tweetbot 2 for Mac, which has received a Yosemite-style redesign. Based on the photo, Tweetbot 2 adopts many stylistic elements from Yosemite, allowing it to blend in well with the updated operating system. It features a flatter look with redesigned icons, plus a translucent navigation bar. It also uses circular profile photos, much like Tweetbot for iPhone. According to Tapbots, the Yosemite update has been "more work than anticipated," which explains why the Mac app has yet to see an update even though Yosemite launched in October. The company has also confirmed that Tweetbot 2 for Mac will be a free update. Tweetbot for Mac made headlines last week when it temporarily disappeared from the App Store, leading some to speculate that it had reached its Twitter token limit, a restriction Twitter places on the number of users allowed for third-party Mac clients, but the disappearance was only temporary and Tweetbot returned to the Mac App Store after a day of absence. Though Tapbots has confirmed that Tweetbot 2 for Mac is in the works, the company has not divulged a possible release date for the software. There is also no new word on a new iPad app, which has ">not been updated since June of 2014 and has not received an iOS 7 redesign. Tweetbot for Mac can be downloaded from the Mac App Store for $19.99. [Direct Link
