Netbot has gestures that can save you time. 1) Tap a Link or Avatar in your timeline to view more. 2) Tapping and holding any of those elements gives you options. 3) And finally you can configure triple-tap to reply-to, star, repost, or even translate a post.
Customizable Tab Bar
Prefer viewing mutes over stars? The last two tabs in Netbot are not only customizable, they are effortlessly swappable. Just hold down the tab for a split second and change it to a new section.
