Tweetbot 3 (iOS)

The Good Tweetbot 3 has a new design for iOS 7, gesture-based browsing for your timeline, customizable buttons, and tons of useful features.

The Bad You can't schedule tweets in advance. The app doesn't give you a summary of new followers or when they follow you.

The Bottom Line Twitter users who don't like the official client should check out this well-polished and feature-rich option that makes browsing your timeline fun.

A great Twitter alternative with useful additions

Tweetbot 3 for iOS adds new improvements to the popular Twitter client along with a cool way to handle images posted to in your Timeline. Unfortunately, Tweetbot 3 doesn't tell you how many people have followed you, and it still doesn't have a way to schedule tweets.

Like every alternative Twitter client, Tweetbot's challenge is not only to match up with the official Twitter app on iOS, but a strong set of twitter alternatives that continue to fill up the App Store. But Tweetbot 3, even with the minor issues it has, is a solid standout among the best apps in the category.

Great layout, slick controls
What Tweetbot does well is give you a great way to read through your timeline with a newly flattened look to fit in with the iOS 7 design scheme. A small tab shows up in the upper right when you have new tweets and shows you how many you have missed. Buttons across the bottom of the interface include ways to quickly jump to your timeline, mentions, and direct messages, and then lets you choose how to use the last two buttons on the right.
