Tweetbot For Mac Updated With Safari Reading List Support, J/K Navigation

Tweetbot for Mac received a little update today in the Mac App Store. The developers at Tapbots have added integration with Safari’s Reading List feature. Like Pocket and Instapaper, you can now save links found in Tweetbot and send them directly to Apple’s iCloud-based read later service. You can login to Reading List using your iCloud credentials in the Tweetbot for Mac preferences pane. The articles you save can be viewed directly in Safari on any iOS 6 or OS X Mountain Lion device.

Another nifty addition is j/k navigation.┬áIf you’re unfamiliar with the term, it refers to using the “j” and “k” keys to navigate up and down in a timeline. Instead of scrolling through tweets, you can now hit the “j” and “k” keys to go through your timeline in sequential order.

Today’s update also includes the ability to turn off Twitter’s streaming API, which means you would have to manually refresh to get new tweets.

    I can’t believe how much they are charging for Tweetbot on Mac. Here in Australia it’s all most $21. What a rip.
