Tweetbot Updated – Adds iCloud Integration

Tweetbot Icon

Tweetbot – the excellent Twitter client app for iPad – was updated yesterday, to Version 2.2.

The big new feature in this update is iCloud integration:

– iCloud Integration (Must be logged into iCloud)
– Mute filters synced across instances of Tweetbot
– DM read status synced across all instances of Tweetbot when iCloud is selected for Sync
– Timeline positions are synced across all instances of Tweetbot that have iCloud selected for Sync

If you’re using Tweetbot on both the iPad and iPhone this should be quite a nice feature. It’s one that I would like to see between desktop and iOS versions of the official Twitter app.

Here’s the remainder of the change list for this latest version of Tweebot:

– Better handling of iTunes links along with thumbnail previews
– Youtube links provide thumbnail previews
– Fixed iPad retina image preview in the tweet detail
– Pinch to close image view on iPad
– Bug fixes

And here’s an App Store link for Tweetbot; it’s priced at $2.99.

  1. I’m pretty clueless when it comes to iCloud. The sync wasn’t working for me between my iPad and iPhone initially, even though I have iCloud enabled. Then I saw that the iCloud entry “Documents & Data” was turned off. I turned that on and it started working. I assume that’s the key.

    1. Yeah, iCloud is not exactly well-documented at the moment IMO. Turning on Documents and Data seems to be the catch-all for the moment, though of course the iCloud implementation of a restore is horrendous and goes against the principles of any decent backup system.
