Regarding Tweetbot's iOS 7 Redesign

Mark Jardine, in an update on the Tapbots blog:

Playing with the beta of iOS7 over the next few weeks brought us to the realization that this would not just be a “re-skin”. We really had to just start over with the new foundation and concepts of iOS7.

We were aiming for the iOS7 launch date, but unfortunately we didn’t make it. We’ve been working night and day for the last 4 months to re-design and develop an app that took over a year to build. The good news is that we are extremely happy with the results and can’t wait to share it with everyone.

Now that you know what we have been up to over the past months, here’s where we are today. We’ve just submitted Tweetbot for iPhone to the app store and are waiting for approval. We do not have a launch date yet because there are many other things that need to be in place and ready before we launch, but it will be soon. That is all that we can say at this point. We truly appreciate your patience and support on this and know that it will be worth the wait!

I can’t wait for Tweetbot to be updated for iOS 7; Tweetbot is awesome.

In the meantime, I’ve been using the “legacy”, iOS 6-style app on my 5S. It’s been fine, but the old UI definitely feels dated in the context of iOS 7. It’ll be great to see Tweetbot updated.
