Tapbots is out with a new version of Tweetbot for iOS that adds a handful of fresh features. iPhone X users will especially appreciate a reworked dark mode that uses true black and looks especially nice on OLED panels.

Tweetbot also has a new app icon on iPhone and iPad — matching the current Mac version — with the now familiar angry bird replacing the more mechanical version that came before it. Iconography within the app (like along the tab bar) has also been refreshed, and the app is now optimized for the iPhone XR and iPhone XS Max.

The update is also more than just a facelift. Tweetbot for iOS now supports easily posting GIFs thanks to a new GIPHY integration from the compose tweet screen. Just look for the GIF box when posting a new tweet, then use the search box or pick from one of the recommend GIFs to attach an animated image to your tweet.

Here’s the changelog:

– GIF support in compose view (Powered by Giphy). – Redesigned profiles. – Redesigned tweet status details. – New iconography and app icon. – Optimized dark theme for OLED displays. – Support for haptic feedback. – Auto video playback in the timeline (which can be disabled in the settings). – Ability to add descriptions to images when composing.

The new version of Tweetbot for iOS is available on the iOS App Store as a free update for Tweetbot 4 customers.
