You’ve got to hand it to the folks at Tapbots LLC -- they know how to make a splash, even with something as mundane as a new Twitter client for the iPhone. Tweetbot has arrived, and if you haven’t found the perfect Twitter client yet, it might be worth a look.
Tapbots LLC has released their latest, a “Twitter client with personality” dubbed Tweetbot, in keeping with the theme of their other iOS apps which began with Weightbot and has expanded to include Convertbot, Pastebot and Calcbot. Why so much excitement for just another Twitter client? As usual, the devil is in the details.
“Tweetbot is a full-featured iPhone (and iPod touch) Twitter client with a lot of personality,” the app description boasts. “Whether it’s the meticulously-crafted interface, sounds & animation, or features like multiple timelines & smart gestures, there’s a lot to love about Tweetbot.”
Of course, with Tapbots, it’s all about the polish -- from the cute little app icon to the downright luscious user interface, you’re buying something like Tweetbot because it looks so darned good. Thankfully, the Tapbots apps offer a lot in the way of features as well, so it’s not all just good looks and no substance.
Among the features are multiple timelines, smart gestures, customizable navigation, support for multiple services like Read It Later, Instapaper and Cloudapp URL shortening as well as Boxcar push notifications, the ability to save tweet drafts, add locations and points of interest, attach photos and videos, manage lists and a host of other features.
Tweetbot is on sale for $1.99 on the App Store for a limited time only; the 8.1MB download requires iOS 4.1 or later and is compatible with the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad -- but sadly, like all of the Tapbots apps so far, it’s not universal. You can see it in action before you buy at the Tapbots website.
