Tweetbot, the popular Twitter app from Tapbots, has been updated with a new Media Timeline view that makes finding Tweets with photos or videos attached quick and easy. The new 2.8 version is in the App Store now and both the iPhone and iPad versions have been updated with this new feature. The new Media Timeline essentially acts as a filter, bringing you only the Tweets of those you follow which have images or videos attached to them. Is kinda Instagram-ish in a way
but it makes finding media Tweets far easier.
Speaking of Instagram, Tweetbot has also had a fix in this release where Instagram posts are displayed correctly. This is a big win for me personally as I love Instagram.
Here are the other updates in this build according to the Release Notes:
- New media timeline. Scroll to the top of a timeline and switch to the new media view (next to the search box). This view displays only supported image and video tweets.
- Completely redesigned image viewer
- Tweet/status detail view now displays the number of Favs and Retweets
- Fixed Instagram Previews
- Various other bug fixes
Tweetbot for iPhone or iPad is $2.99 each. This isn’t a universal app so you have to buy it for each platform you want to use it for Tweeting.
