Tweetbot for the iPhone and iPad have both been updated once again. The last we had heard was back in mid-March when the apps went up to version 2.1 and now a bit more recently, both apps have been updated to version 2.2. And while many would assume nothing but a small point release — this update did arrive with some worthwhile changes. Most notably, the iCloud integration. Otherwise, there was also the almost always seen — bug fixes, as well as the following goodies;

  • Mute filters synced across instances of Tweetbot
  • DM read status synced across all instances of Tweetbot when iCloud is selected for Sync
  • Timeline positions are synced across all instances of Tweetbot that have iCloud selected for Sync
  • Better handling of iTunes links along with thumbnail previews
  • Youtube links provide thumbnail previews

And then two additions specifically for the iPad version;

  • Fixed iPad retina image preview in the tweet detail
  • Pinch to close image view on iPad

For those who have yet to check out Tweetbot, the apps are each (the iPad version and the iPhone version) priced at $2.99. Lastly, the iPhone version of Tweetbot requires iOS 4.1 or later and the iPad version required iOS 5.0 or later.
