The bad news about Tweetbot 6, the alternative to Twitter on iOS and iPadOS — 2022
Yesterday saw the release of Tweetbot 6 on the iOS and iPadOS App Store. This is the new version ofunofficial twitter clientmost popular all over the world and that, again, is also available in Spanish. It is noteworthy that it has lost some popularity in recent years at the expense of improvements to the official app, the truth is that it is still a very interesting option. Below we address all the new features of this version, since not everything is good news.
Tweetbot is now subscription
Lately there are many developers who see more business offering their applications with recurring payments instead of the single payment per download. In fact, some of them have even changed their payment method in the same app, going from that second method to subscription. In the case of Tweetbot, we find that they have taken this path in this sixth version of the application, which now requires a monthly or annual subscription. We remember that previously Tweetbot was a single payment app at the time of download. These are the current prices for this subscription:
- Monthly subscription: €0.99
- Annual subscription: €6.49
It should be noted that there is currently a launch promotion for which those prices are already discounted. You can also count on 7 day trial . In any case, it is expected that the annual version, although it requires an immediate payment of the entire amount, will be cheaper than the monthly version. Although it is true that for many it may be a bad decision on the part of the developers, we must recognize that it is not a high subscription or that it cannot be afforded by the majority of users who had the service until now.
Small interface changes
The main change in Tweetbot in this version is the one mentioned above, since there are no really new features or those that represent a sudden change compared to previous versions. There are slight visual changes, such as the fact that the button to write tweets is now at the top. Although luckily you can continue to count on the main assets that they already had, such as the fact that they do not have organic advertising or of any kind or be able to have a classic timeline view, making this one hundred percent real seeing ordered chronologically the tweets of those users you follow. Also the greatest customization of the app is present in this Tweetbot 6.
As we said at the beginning, many of the features that Twitter users longed for before and found in Tweetbot are already in both applications, so it makes less and less sense to use clients like this one. In any case, the developers have not wanted to leave aside that loyal public that still accompanies them and for this reason they have continued to launch new versions like these. The app is available now for iPhone and iPad.
