I just received these on Twitter a few minutes ago, from Jonah Grant. He assures me he has had confirmation from Loren himself that screenshots of the new upcoming app are okay to be leaked, due to the cat already being out of the bag. So, here goes nothing! ..

All in all there are 11 shots in this batch, a few of which depict more of what we can expect from the update. Most noticeably I think, is the fact that Tweetie’s ‘Nearby’ feature is now in fact an interactive map of nearby users. From the shot we can tell that the UI is not too dissimilar to Loopt, and you can switch from ‘Map’ to ‘List’ view.

You’ll also see they depict a new way to refresh your timeline. From the shots it suggests that you pull a ‘panel’ down from the top of Tweetie 2, and release to refresh – Pretty neat implementation I have to say. Now whether or not Tweetie will have a ‘Automatic’ refresh option is yet to be seen, but I know you guys sure want it, looking at my replies tab on Twitter.

Update: Tweet update… “Automatic” refresh will be included.

Update 2: This morning I asked Loren of behalf of all of you, that burning question; Would Tweetie 2 bring with it Push Notifications? Below is his response via a few DMs:

“Not in 2.0. It’s impossible to pull off reliably on the scale of users Tweetie has. I recommend Boxcar for now. (but there is some exciting stuff coming down the pipe ;)”

I’ve attached the rest of the shots after the break for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!
