Tweetbot for iOS gets new widgets, themes, icon and profile design

Tweetbot has received a new update with new followers widgets, themes, profile design, and app icon. The new update, version 6.8, is available as a free upgrade for existing subscribers.


Tweetbot 6.8: new widgets, themes, and profile pages

The biggest design change in this update are the new profile pages. When you go to a Twitter user’s profile, there is a lot more breathing space around the avatar, account name, description, follower count, and following counts. However, the additional empty space comes at the cost of readability as you have to scroll down to read tweets on the profile page.

Tweetbot also has a new widget type that shows the latest followers. The widget is available in three different sizes.

In terms of personalization, there are two new themes called “Lavender” and “Wine”, while there is a new “Owl” icon as well.

Here are the complete release notes for Tweetbot 6.8:

– New profile for a New Year.

– New Latest Followers widget

– New Lavender and Wine themes

– Owl icon because Mark saw two owls on his neighbor’s roof

Tweetbot had recently received an update with support for iOS 15 features such as avatars in notifications, Quick Notes, a new larger widget for iPad, the ability to disable drag and drop on iPhone, and performance improvements.

Long-time readers would know that Tweetbot has been our preferred Twitter app for iPhone and iPad here at iThinkDifferent for a long time. The app continues to keep getting better ever since version 6 was launched last year with a new subscription model and updated Twitter API support.

Tweetbot is available for $0.99 per month or $5.99 per year, which makes it a no-brainer. A single subscription works for both iPhone and iPad. The only thing that sticks out like a sore thumb is the macOS app that has not been updated with the new design and features that version 6 on iOS has.
