Customer Reviews

Looks ugly and is way behind the iPhone version

This app has the appearance of being neglected compared to the iPhone version. It looks like it was built in a tractor factory in 1984. It really needs a facelift to make it feel part of the last 2 iOS looks and feel. This app would look great on an iPad if it mimicked its smaller cousin.

Use wise, it's ok, it synchs well with the iPhone version but I wish there was more control to get rid of the space it begins to take away from the iPad over time through its cache.

Come on Tapbots, let's keep up with everyone else.

Doesn't live up to its description - support is lacking too

I bought this app last year and have had a number of problems with it since. I've contacted Tweetbot support on a number of occasions but received no response.

My problems with the app are:
- The mute keywords or hashtags function doesn't work on the iPad app. If I want keywords or hashtags to be muted on the iPad app I have to do it via the iPhone version of the app and then the iPad app recognises the muting.

- Random tweets refuse to appear in my timeline in the iPad version of the app. I've confirmed that there is no reason for the missing tweets not to appear i.e. they don't contain muted keywords, muted hashtags, or blocked/muted users. The random tweets just don't appear in Tweetbot but do appear in other Twitter apps.

- The 'report problems' button on the app doesn't function.

I've given up using this app, it was a waste of money.

Where Is The Update for iPad Users?

As others have said, Tweetbot for iPad is a superb Twitter client, but seems to have been abandoned by the developers, who'd rather focus on the iPhone version.

Right now, Tweetbot for iPad can't support tweets with multiple images attached, or animated gifs - both staples of Twitter these days.

We've paid for this app, so at the very least, the developers should have the good manners to at least formally announce the end of its development and/or support, rather than leave paying customers wondering what's going on.


So if all you care about is lining your pockets, even THAT ought to be enough motivation to do something about this situation.
