Tweetbot 3 for iOS 7 arrives, but it's not a free update

There's cause for celebration for Twitter power users who keep Tweetbot near and dear to their hearts. Tweetbot 3, the iOS 7-optimized update of arguably the most powerful Twitter client available on iPhone and iPad, has been released. But this is no free update. No, Tweetbot 3 is a new product, and that means buying the app again.

Developer Tapbot is aware this may put off some previous Tweetbot fans, so the app is currently on sale for US$2.99. Eventually that price will jump up to $4.99, so act now and look forward to these new features.

◆ Completely redesigned from the ground up for iOS7.

◆ Native Push Notifications.

◆ Mute filters let you block messages from users without unfollowing them. Mute services, hashtags, people and even keywords (regex included).

◆ Sync timeline position, direct message read statuses and mute filters between iPhone, iPad and the Mac via iCloud or Tweetmarker.

◆ Customizable Navigation. The last two tabs are customizable and unused tabs are easily accessible.

◆ Support for multiple services like Pocket, Instapaper, Readability, CloudApp, Droplr and more.

◆ Save drafts, add locations and POI's, attach photos/videos, manage your lists and much more.

You can watch a video preview of the new app design below.

Many users are noting some features have been removed, like being able to triple-tap to reply to a tweet, so let us know in the comments which features you find missing.
