A redesigned Tweetbot for Yosemite gets a blurry teaser

Tweetbot, one of our favorite Twitter apps, looks like it's finally getting the redesign we've been clamoring for for, well, years. The Mac app has seen several updates since release, and even a surprise disappearance and return to the App Store, but has carried something of a legacy styling into this modern OS X Yosemite era. That all is poised to change at some point later this year, if this blurry teaser from Tapbots developer Mark Jardine is any indication.

Microsoft's messaging app Yammer now supports Apple's Handoff feature on OS X Yosemite and iOS 8. Unlike some implementations of Handoff, which see you switching between corresponding apps on iPhone and Mac, Yammer's sends you from the iOS app to your Handoff-supporting browser and back again.

Get travel time for frequent destinations on your iPhone

I don't drive around Boston a whole lot — the perks of working from home and living in a fairly walkable city — but when I do, it's often to specific locations: my roller derby league's practice space, "Fort Independence," for example, or my boyfriend's house. Apple provides an easy way to add bookmarks for frequent destinations, but the Maps app isn't so great at being able to see quick traffic estimations on the go. Asking Siri "How long will it take me to get to X?" will get you directions from the Maps app, but there's no quick way to preview travel time or routes.

Enter ETA: the $1 app and accompanying Notification Center widget not only stores your frequent locations, but gets accurate walking or driving time estimates for you from your favorite map app, too.
