What's New in Version 3.6
- Support for Twitter's new "Quote Tweet" format
- Various bug fixes
Great app, fewer annoyances than the actual Twitter app
This app the best Twitter app, but there are problems. It doesn't have an interactions tab for retweets and favorites. If you accidentally click the word "timeline" at the top, it takes you to the top of your timeline. The search function for tweets doesn't go back very far, and I have to keep the official Twitter app around for that. You can only search your timeline when you're at the top of it. It has this thing that shows you how many unread tweets you have until the top of your timeline, but sometimes there is a bar that says "load more tweets," and if you pass it reading your timeline, the thing will sync with the tweets above and will not show up again until you get to that point in your timeline. This app is so much better than anything on Windows, so now I can only use this app, so I don't use Twitter as much because I have to be on my phone to use it. Otherwise great app.
Slowly Losing Stars
This is the third time I've reviewed Tweetbot. I used to swear by this app and recommend it to everyone. It was truly five stars.
Each subsequent review has removed a star. Twitter evolves as a service, but Tweetbot is seemingly stagnant and slowly becomes more broken as time passes. I now have to use the official Twitter app to use some features because Tweetbot is lacking in them.
I suspect one day in the near future I'll be revising this to a two or one star review and fully switching over to the official app (which is exactly what Twitter wants).
Update: Yup. I'm back. It's two stars now. The app pretends group DMs don't exist and doesn't even try to notify you. Also, the last update introduced a glitch where the status bar literally flies off the screen until you restart the app. Tweetbot is a broken mess and because I've apparently been missing group DMs for a month, I'm switching permanently to the official Twitter app (the lesser of two broken messes).
Update 2: There was an update recently, and I was hoping it adding in some of the missing features, but hope. It used to be I used Tweetbot because it had more features than the main client, but now the opposite is true. I'm tired of holding out hoping this app will update to at least be on par with the official client, so I'm done. It's deleted. I recommend not wasting your money until Tapbots makes some serious improvements.
Best Twitter client
Tweetbot is the best Twitter client hands down. It blows Twitter's official app out of the water.
That said, I'm disappointed with the implementation of the quoted tweets. I'm glad that Tweetbot added support for this, but I think they could have done a better job with it. It just feels sloppy—like it didn't get the usual attention attention to detail that Tweetbot users have come to expect. So I subtracted a star for that, but will definitely add a fifth star if Tweetbot cleans this up in a future release.
