iOS: Tweetbot, our pick for the best Twitter client for the iPhone, just rolled out a new update that adds in-line image viewing, single-tap-to-launch links, an overhauled UI and easy access to people who have retweeted you. Tweetbot has also finally landed on the iPad, with an interface that makes use of the tablet's larger display, multiple-account support, push notifications and support for third party apps like Instagram, Readability and Instapaper.
The iPad app also allows you to tweak and customise your quick-access tabs to display the way you like, and like the iPhone version, also allows you to mute chatty Twitter users or played out hashtags, supports smart gestures to reply, retweet and share, and adds a customisable display font size.
Tapbots, the company behind Tweetbot, decided against making Tweetbot universal, so if you have the app on your iPhone and want it for your iPad, you'll have to buy it for $2.99 in the iTunes App Store. The update to the iPhone app is free, of course, but if you're new to the iPhone version, it'll set you back $2.99 as well. Do you use Tweetbot, or is $3 too much to spend when there are free Twitter clients aplenty? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
