Tweetbot’s iCloud sync is brilliant

Gearbest  promotion

A couple of weeks ago version 2.2 of Tweetbot — my favorite Twitter client for iOS — was released to the public.

While that update included a number of interesting new features and obligatory bug fixes, the new iCloud sync capabilities stand head and shoulders above everything else.

One of the things that has always annoyed me about Twitter clients, and by extension Tweetbot, is that there was no reliable method for picking up where you left off across multiple devices. I know Tweet Marker support was there before, but I’ve never had very much success with it, and it only works with timelines.

I have Tweetbot installed on two iPhones, two iPads, and an iPod touch. As you can probably imagine, it doesn’t take long for things to get really messy when tweeting from all of those different devices at various points in time.

That’s where the beauty of iCloud comes in. The new iCloud sync makes Tweetbot a seamless Twitter experience, able to sync timelines, mute filters, and even DM read statuses across multiple iOS devices…

Setting up Tweetbot iCloud sync

Setting up Tweetbot’s iCloud sync is easy to setup. All you need to do is open Tweetbot, go to settings, and select your Twitter account under account settings. There you should find the Sync option. Open the Sync option, and you will be able to choose between None, iCloud, or Tweet Marker. Select iCloud, and you will be good to go. Remember you will need to do this on all of the iOS devices where you have Tweetbot installed.
