Apple has a wide variety of apps for its users in its App Store. Many popular apps like Tweetbot, HipChat, and Bump have now been updated.
Tweetbot is a third-party iOS mobile application for Twitter, which can be used on the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPads. An updated version of the app Tweetbot 2.6 is now available for iPhone with minor tweaks. The updated version supports for Twitter's new header images for profiles. Users will have to upload images directly from Twitter's Web site.
Tweetbot 2.6 also allows users to create custom Point Of Interest (POIs) for locations. Users can create custom POIs; however, other Tweetbot users will also be able to use the POI, as it is based on Twitter's geolocation features and the address of the location.
HipChat is a private instant messaging network. Users can get in private chat rooms and share files. The updated version 1.8 provides improved support for iPhone 5, enhanced performance during app load and reconnection, and improved notifications which will be triggered as soon as the app is put in the background. The update fixes bugs and provides improvement to display active chats tab.
