Wow, how'd you find it…?! It's not even showing up on their own website yet…
I've always been a loyal Twitterriffic user but I do love the Tapbots app so I will definitely give it a try…!

Mrjr says:

I'm running out of love for Osfoora. If this is any good, and not too pricey, I'll spring for it.

websyndicate says:

Finally I can move on from twitter aka tweetie

Josh Hofer says:

If you're in the US, you probably won't see it go live until around 10/11pm. That's normally how it works.

phoo master says:

looks cool not in canada yet but PasteBot is .. and its soooo badass! I can't tell you

cth11 says:

I notice that there is another "Tweetbot" from Koh Sueda...I wonder if that will be an issue...I have been patiently waiting for Tapbots version.....

James says:

Ehhh I'll stick with twitter app for the iPhone

emtp563 says:

How does this compare to Twittelator Pro?

chavista says:

$2.59? Whats up with that price? never seen that before

Josh Hofer says:

@Brandon -- That link should work fine once it goes live in the US Store. Read my previous comment (#4).
@chavista -- That isn't a US price, that'll probably translate to $1.99 USD? Not sure.

websyndicate says:

From Tapbots they are saying we dont get it until tomorrow.

jo says:

in this thread: losers who actually use twitter.

websyndicate says:

and when you say "losers" you mean - awesome, smart, connected, intelligent, users that are on a much high level than you. Then yes we are losers. Thanks for the compliment. Please keep them coming :)

Geo Coldz says:

You are a loser because you took the time to comment and this isn't a thread.

Db says:

^ this guy, a loser that has nothing better to do then flame people getting information on an app. Who's the biggest loser

TychoQuad says:

I've installed tweetbot, and while it is very nice, with the benchmark being the official free twitter client, it makes it hard to recommend. I will be using it on my iPhone nonetheless.

TK says:

Does anyone know if it allows for the old retweet style? As in "RT @username"

Steve Doherty says:

This is live in the Australian app store, I just got it.
Can tipb do a in-depth review of this please?

Hook Man says:

Live in the US store now $1.99

Scooter says:

Finally, a iOS twitter client thats very slick. Was beginning to think webOS was the only OS that could have fancy, unique twitter interface.

Matthew Snider says:

We are giving away a copy of the application here - -Check it out.
