You may have heard that there’s a big update in the works for Tweetbot, one of the most popular third-party Twitter apps out there. Version 3.0 for iOS 7 has been kept under wraps for the past several months, and today the app is one step closer to your iOS device.
Tapbots, the small app company that makes Tweetbot, announced today that it has submitted Tweetbot for iOS 7 to the App Store.
“We’ve just submitted Tweetbot for iPhone to the app store and are waiting for approval,” said Tweetbot designer Mark Jardine. “We do not have a launch date yet because there are many other things that need to be in place and ready before we launch, but it will be soon.”
So Apple still needs to approve the app before it can go on sale. The average iOS App Store review time is currently about a week.
Tapbots was hoping to have the update ready for the public launch of iOS 7, but that obviously didn’t work out. If you’re a fan of Tapbots then you know they make a few other apps: Convertbot, Calcbot, and Weightbot. Those three have been in desperate need of revamping for years, and Tapbots’ blog post alludes to the idea that they are being worked on.
No word on if there’s a substantial update planned for Tweetbot for Mac any time soon. But Tweetbot for iOS 7 should be great. It will be interesting to see how Tapbots has evolved its opinionated design language for iOS 7.
