Tweetbot 6 for iOS Launches, Moves to Subscription Model

Tweetbot 6

Tapbots has released Tweetbot 6 for iPhone and iPad, which is built on the new Twitter API with a fresh new look, new features, and more, according to the developer.

The biggest change with Tweetbot 6 is the move to a subscription model, which will cost $1.29 CAD per month, or $7.99 CAD per year ($0.67 CAD per month).

The app won’t be able to show you notifications when someone likes your tweets or follows you, like the Twitter iOS app, because the V2 API doesn’t allow it yet.

“This early access version for iOS uses the new Twitter API. We are calling it early access because there are many new features on our roadmap to be built as well as new API’s to adopt as Twitter makes them available. Tweetbot 6 contains all the features found in version 5 and more,” explains Tapbots.

Tweetbot 6 does offer a free 7-day trial, before the paid subscription kicks in.

As with any move to a subscription model, it’s controversial. Some existing Tweetbot customers were unhappy with the move, while others pointed out the annual cost is not very much at all, if Tweetbot is one of your most-used apps.
