Tweetbot 6.3 for iOS

Joe Rossignol:

Tapbots today released version 6.3 of Tweetbot for the iPhone and iPad, with the key new feature being a “Behaviors” menu in the app’s settings that contains several toggle switches for fine tuning your Tweetbot experience.

I like the option to turn off “Tap to Top,” as I often accidentally scroll to the top and then lose my place in the timeline. In theory, I can tap the top again to scroll back down, but sometimes by the time I realize I’ve gone to the top it’s too late.

What I’d really like to see is more behaviors, e.g. being able to configure a swipe to share with OmniFocus in a single gesture. Currently, it’s a multi-step process: tap to show the buttons, tap the Share button, wait for the animation, tap OmniFocus, wait for the panel to show up, tap Save, and wait for the panel to close.

It does let you configure a swipe to add to Safari Reading List, though, which was not previously possible. This also requires a confirmation alert each time, apparently because iOS was designed that way. Apple doesn’t explicitly say so, but I assume that Reading List is considered part of Bookmarks rather than History and so is not end-to-end encrypted.

Safari bookmarks have been encrypted in iCloud for some time now. See https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202303.

@Henry That’s the same page that I linked to. It does not have bookmarks in the end-to-end encrypted section.

Yes!!!

It me. Fantastic improvement.

Encrypted, yes, end-to-end encrypted, no. IOW, the key resides in iCloud, and Apple could theoretically decrypt them.

(I'm not sure why. It doesn't seem their web interface shows bookmarks. Perhaps they haven't gotten around to implementing E2E support in their Windows cilent yet.)
