Tweetbot Updated for New iPad Retina Display

Share This:


Tweetbot, the gorgeous Twitter client for the iPad, has been updated today to include support for the retina display on the new iPad. The change list mentions this support like so:

Retina Graphics for iPad 3rd generation

This is already the best looking Twitter app for the iPad, seeing it with retina graphics should be awfully impressive.

I expect we’re going to see quite a number of iPad apps issuing retina graphics updates in the next few days and weeks. I’m looking forward to trying as many of these out as I can on Friday and this weekend.

Here’s the remainder of the change list for Tweetbot 2.1:

– Streaming (when on WiFI with settings to disable it)
– The "new tweets" sound is now limited to mentions, DM’s, and new tweets via pull-to-refresh
– Double-tapping on the timeline tab button takes you to last read tweet before going to the top
– Improvements to the Tweetmarker service
– Bug fixes related to direct messages
– Version number updated to 2.1 to match iPhone’s version
– Many other bug fixes

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

  1. It’s a shame this isn’t a universal app. Seems a little harsh to have to pay $3 twice to use this on your iPhone and iPad, especially considering Twitter is already integrated. Is Tweetbot really that much better?
