Tapbots, the developer of popular iPhone and iPad Twitter client Tweetbot, has today brought their apps on both devices to version 2.2. This update’s most notable feature is iCloud integration, which synchronizes the timelines, DMs, and mute filters from the app across all your devices automatically. This means that all you have to do is sign in to your iCloud account — which you should already have done when setting up your iOS device — and the Tweetbot app on all your iOS devices will be synced to the same spot you left off on another. It also marks direct messages as read, makes sure certain accounts are muted, etc.
If you didn’t know, there was actually a feature like this in the previous version of the app called Tweet Marker. It would perform the same basic function as iCloud sync now does, but the developer saw iCloud as a much better solution. However, if you still prefer to use Tweet Marker, it is included with the new version of Tweetbot. Some users may find it more useful since there are a few Twitter clients out there on the Mac and other platforms that support it.
Some of the other notable features in this release include thumbnail previews of iTunes and YouTube links in your timeline, pinch to close the image view on iPad, and some bug fixes. If you’re a user of Tweetbot, then head over to the updates pane in the App Store to grab this release. If not, consider looking into purchasing it, you won’t regret it.
