Tweetbot 6.4 is now available with a bunch of new updates that add support for new iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 features such as avatars in notifications, quick notes support, a new larger widget for iPad, ability to disable drag and drop on iPhone, and performance improvements.
Tweetbot now has a Safari extension to automatically open tweets in the app
Many apps like Spark have already been updated with support for showing the sender’s avatars, and Tweetbot has followed suit to support this new iOS 15 feature. This means that when you get a push notification, it will show the Twitter user’s avatar, whether it is a mention, like, or retweet.
The app also supports iPad-specific features like its new menu system, support for Quick Notes, and a new larger widget which still shows four tweets but cuts off lesser text than the smaller widget sizes.
Perhaps the best feature in this update is that that you can use the new “Open in Tweetbot” Safari web extension to automatically open tweets in Tweetbot. However, in our testing so far, it does not work flawlessly. While some tweets take you to Tweetbot, many still open in the Twitter app.
