    In this post, I will keep track of the apps working AND not working for iOS8.
    Granted, I can't test every single function of the apps, but the list below should give you a pretty good idea of whether or not you can make the switch.

    Can someone confirm or deny if the Pebble Watch works for notifying you of phone calls under the beta 1? That is the one thing I'm hesitant upon upgrading my iPhone to - upgrading my iPad tonight.

    FWIW, Tweebot for iPhone was working just fine for me (minus some layout jumble when using the predictive keyboard). Tweetbot for iPad however just crashed.

    I have a feeling the latter is to light a fire up under Tapbot’s bum to get one out for iOS7/8 already. :D

    It's worth noting that Tweetbot half works on iPhone -- try adding a photo to your tweet and you'll see what I mean

    Fair enough. iOS8 on my iPhone 5 was so unstable I got rid of it before I could play with it too long. Tweetbot not being able to post/use regularly would just have been another nail in that coffin.

    Bit off-topic but's how the actual OS running? I know it varies, I'm just really tempted to install it on my everyday device!
