Following its Mac App Store release on October 19, Tapbots just pushed out a small – (but considerable) – update to its Tweetbot for Mac client, adding full support for OS X‘s ‘Reading List’ feature, alongside a number of improvements and fixes.
Specifically, this version adds support for Bill Joy’s j/k navigation method in the timeline. For those not aware, j/k navigation is a method which allows a users to press the key ‘j’ to advance forward, and press the key ‘k’ to go backwards.
Seen in a variety of online services available to users today, (Gmail being just one example), in this instance, we presume the method has been implemented to allow the ease of navigation when scrolling up and down your main timeline.
Other changes in this version include; the ability to now disable timeline ‘Streaming’ in the app’s Preferences, and improved support for the keyboard when using the ‘People’ search field. There’s also a few bug fixes too, which we’ve listed below.
- fixes an issue where timeline would scroll down to tweets that were already read
- fixes streaming on accounts with > 1500 followers
- fixes many other reported issues and crashers
Considered one of the more stable and reliable Twitter client offerings available for Mac, Tweetbot for Mac 1.0.1 is a FREE update for all existing users, with those who don’t yet own a copy of the client able to purchase theirs from the Mac App Store, today – for $19.99.
Note: Saving tweets to your ‘Reading List’ requires OS X 10.8 – (or later).
