Tweetbot updated to 1.1

It's awesome, I'd still like to see it a bit faster, but with all the fancy UI and UX stuff it has I don't think Tapbots will have an easy job of it.

Use Boxcar for DM/Mention push notifications. Tweetbot is far and way the best Twitter app on iOS. With or without native push. If you use lists, it's not even close!

I bought this based on TiPb's last recommendation of it (and because I had an iTunes gift card that I was itching to spend).
It's pretty and all, but I still find myself using the official Twitter app 90% of the time. It does all I need it to...and didn't cost me $1.99.

I do like Tapbot's other apps, but Tweetbot is over-engineered. Simple is better for a Twitter client, so I'm sticking with Twitterrific.

Wow. Twitterific is anything but simple. un-iOS like interface and fairly unintuitive placement of items in menus. It is certainly popular, but somewhat awkward in my opinion.
I can find my way around in it, but only cause I used it for a few months a year or so back when Tweetie lost the dark theme.
That being said, Compared to the official Twitter app, most apps seem overly engineered.
I think that Tweetbot has some great features, but I feel that the over-engineered aspect is really apparent in the smoothness (or lack there-of) in the scrolling.
It is my current go-to twitter client on the iPhone though because it has a well thought out UI with less clicks necessary for most actions.

...and after i posted that, I loaded up Tweetbot and noticed that after the initial load is done upon startup, scrolling seems smoother that before I updated last night.

I love this app! The new update made it that much more aesthetically pleasing and the landscape orientation earned Tapbot's some cool points as that was a problem for some users. Now if we can only get native push...

For me the only thing that would make this app near perfect is including a service of some kind of mobilizer, just like tweetie 2 used to have. I loved the instapaper mobilizer. The only thing twitter app has on tweetbot

Is that twitters way of displaying The menu on every tweet is very intuitive. I like the one on tweet or but its not as elegant as the twitter app.

Sorry for spelling mistakes iPhone auto correction is killing me lately. :(

I downloaded the App the day it came out but hated the lack of landscape mode to compose tweets. With this update I'm giving it a try. I'm using Boxcar for notifications, so far, it's the best app combo for me.
I highly recommend it!

Using Boxcar for push notifications is fine. No big deal that Tweetbot doesn't have native push. Tapbots is two developers and I am sure native push is expensive and a beast to maintain. That is why Boxcar exists right? I have found the combo to be more than adequate.
Tapbots make the best looking iOS apps hands down and they have said they plan to roll out features as fast as they can, which IMHO gives us something to look forward to.
I do like Tweetdeck for different features, but nothing compares to the look and feel of Tweetbot.
