With the same bright colors, flat planes, and animated icons, Tweetbot 3 looks and feels very different from its earlier versions. Tapbots, the company behind the app, said it redesigned Tweetbot "from the ground up" for Apple's newest operating system.
"Tweetbot has slimmed down to look and feel more like iOS 7 and has also gained a lot of charm and speed in the process," Tapbots wrote in the app description.

With the redesign, Tapbots held onto or amped up users' favorite features, such as image upload, iCloud sync, mute filters for blocking messages from users without unfollowing them, customizable navigation, and Wi-Fi streaming.
Tweetbot was created by Tapbots to give users an alternative to Twitter's official mobile app and other Twitter mobile clients. This newest redesign is specifically for iPhone, but Tapbots is reportedly working on an update for Tweetbot for iPad too.
