Tweetbot 2 For iPhone Now Available, A Great Twitter Client Just Got Better

Tapbots released Tweetbot 2.0 for iPhone in the App Store today. The update brings
 several significant improvements, including one-tap links, image preview thumbnails, 
faster performance, and a UI facelift.

Tweetbot was already one of the best third-party Twitter clients in the App Store, and it 
just got even better with version 2.0.

The first thing you’ll notice about the new Tweetbot is the revamped Timeline view.
 Links are now able to be opened with a single tap. There’s a new tweet marker that floats at the
 top of your Timeline showing you how many unread tweets you have left. (Don’t worry, 
you can turn this feature off in the app’s settings.) The DM interface was also redesigned to look more like Apple’s iMessage app.

When you see a retweet in Tweetbot 2.0, the name of the account that performed the retweet is 
integrated into the actual tweet. You can tap on the name of the person that retweeted
 and view their profile quickly. There are plenty of other subtle improvements, like the
 bolding of @usernames, color adjustments, larger (it’s actually huge) font size, and 
more.

The developers at Tapbots added Readability mobilizer support for viewing articles 
in-app. This feature can be triggered with a handy toggle in the app’s built-in web browser. Your Timeline will automatically refresh every 5 minutes as long as the app is
 open. Scrolling is responsive and I’ve always loved having the ability to load hours of missed tweets right there on my iPhone with Tweetbot’s little “+” Timeline icon.

You can download Tweetbot 2.0 for iPhone in the App Store now. It costs $2.99.
