Makes numerous interface improvements
Tapbots has released a new version of Tweetbot, its popular iOS Twitter client. The v2.3 update concentrates on conversations; a new Detail view shows inline conversations and replies, and gestures make it possible to both jump to this view and quickly return to the timeline. Conversations can be emailed, or alternately linked via Storify.
Other changes are comparatively minor, but still significant. The app is now available in Arabic for instance, and support for Droplr filesharing has been added. Higher-resolution image uploads are allowed on Wi-Fi, and the tweet drawer has been reorganized. Elsewhere, tapping and holding the Compose button will open the last draft, and $stock links are recognized. Video thumbnails are newly identified with a "play" icon, and will preview content from Vimeo in addition to other sites.
Tweetbot costs $3, and requires iOS 4.1 or later. The app still lacks a dedicated iPad interface.
