Tweetbot for iPad – The Only Twitter Client You’ll Ever Need

Tweetbot for iPad-1

Tweetbot for iPad Review

One of the most requested features of Tweetbot for iPhone users appears to have been an iPad version of their favorite Twitter app, while the request appeared to be falling on deaf ears we were all taken by surprise recently when not only did the iPhone Tweetbot app get an update but the also released Tweetbot for iPad. Does the big screen version dominate like the iPhone version does?

The first thing you’ll notice about Tweetbot for iPad is it’s nice clean look. Everything you need is available on one screen whether you have the screen vertically or horizontally, with your timeline taking up the majority of the view while the menu down the left side of the screen gives you access to various views.

All of the great features that you may already know and love from Tweetbot for iPhone are also available in the iPad version. You’ll get picture thumbnails in tweets, the ability to mute people, hashtags & clients, Tweetmarker support and push notifications which considering you get all of this for just $2.99 probably makes it the best 3 dollars you’ll ever spend.

Tweetbot for iPad {App Store} also offers multiple gestures, swiping a Tweet to the left right and right gives you access to related tweets and replies while a double tap will take you directly to the detailed view of the Tweet in question. There is also a triple tap gesture and this can me configured to your requirements. The triple tap will take to a reply screen by default but you can change it to Rwetweet, Favorite, Translate or a Favstar view depending on your preference.

Heading into the settings of Tweetbot for iPad opens up a whole bunch of configurable features, from controlling the sound and services such as syncing, image uploading, read later and url shorting to granular notification controls and a great sleep option that will silence Tweetbot for iPad between given hours. Perfect for muting Tweetbot alerts at night when you don’t want to be disturbed.

One of the new features in both Tweetbot versions if the refresh feature. This will refresh your timelime every 5 minutes without manual intervention. This makes it the ideal app for iPad to have sitting on your desktop allowing you to work will your timeline updates all on it’s own.

Tweetbot for iPad certainly continues where the iPhone version left off, it’s feature rich and instantly usable, putting it head and shoulders above the competition. Some users may complain that it’s not a universal app given the the differences are only cosmetic, however, given that they are both only $2.99 I do think that $6 for the best Twtitter clients on both the iPhone and iPad is still an absolute steal.

If you haven’t already gone and purchased Tweetbot for iPad do so now!
