    Is anyone else having issues with getting iCloud Syncing to work? I've tried every fix I could think of but still cannot get anything to sync. I've tried toggling the iCloud Sync within TweetBot's settings on/off, force quitting the app, rebooting, uninstalling/re-installing but still a no go.

    For those that do have it working, is TweetBot listed in your iCloud Storge (Settings.app > iCloud > Storage & Backup > Manage Storage)?

    One thing that I've noticed is that, after you change your sync settings in Tweetbot from iCloud to none, quit the app, and bring it back up, it'll still say iCloud. When switching it to Tweet Marker, the change will remain (but Tweet Marker syncing isn't working, either).

    I've already completely removed all signs of Tweetbot from my iPhone 4 (iOS 5.0.1) and my iPad 2 (iOS 5.0.1).

    I've noted that also. There seems to be no way to turn off iCloud Syncing within TweetBot without it reverting back on. I'm wondering if this iCloud Syncing issue is just a bug on iOS 5.0.1.

    I'm not sure I understand as there is no checking/unchecking within the iCloud Storage settings? It only list apps storing data on iCloud and allows you to delete the data. In my instance TweetBot is not even listed as storing any data on iCloud.

    That's what I meant, I hit the delete data from the tweetbot option and then enabled it again, but it didn't changed anything; tryied quitting the app, even resetting the phone, but nothing happens, I think this is a bug in this version because everything was fine till yesterday

    Ah, ok. Was there a list of files that were being synced? Also what version of iOS are you on?

    Same not working for me either

    Guess I'll wait for the update before trashing the feature.

    But it's an awesome app anyway. First one I bought as soon as I got my iPad

    I have noticed, and maybe its just me but one twitter account syncs fine while the other one is not as up to date as it should be.

    iCloud syncing IS working for me, at least between iPhone and iPad. Few observations:

    1. Tweetbot isn't storing any data on iCloud's Documents & Data. It would be nice if settings are stored and synced via iCloud.

    2. Depending on iCloud and WiFi/3G network, it takes between 5 to 15 seconds for another device running Tweetbot is synced.

    3. Unlike Tweet Marker, iCloud syncs list positions as well.

    Weird... For me tweetbot on the iPhone is storing about 1.5MB of data on iCloud, and the iPad is just storing about 38kb.

    The other thing is that with the previous version tweet marker used to sync the list position as well, but now it's not working anymore :confused:

    Yeah, I've been keeping a eye out on their Twitter and blog but they have yet to make any mentions. I've seen several tweets out to them of iCloud syncing issues but they seem to have no reply for them.

    That's interesting as R2tito says he has data being stored. What version of iOS are you on?

    Since iCloud syncing wasn't working for me, I switched back to TweetMarker and it's still working fine for me.

    Both my iPad (3rd generation) and iPhone 4 are running 5.1. Documents & Data under Settings -> iCloud -> Storage & Backup -> Manage Storage does not list Tweetbot.

    It doesn't make sense that iPad and iPhone use DIFFERENT Documents & Data namespace though. They would have to use the same name space to be able to sync. Perhaps R2tito was looking at Backups section, which is entirely different?

    Tweetbot iCloud issues

    I've noticed most of the same things all of you have, running Tweetbot 2.2 on iOS 5.0.1 on my iPhone 4S and on iOS 5.1 on the new iPad:

    Tweetbot's iCloud sync doesn't perform as advertised. Not only that, but after turning off the sync feature in account settings and quitting the app or rebooting, iCloud sync is automatically reenabled on both the iPad and the iPhone. Tweetmarker still seems to work okay, but not great. And iCloud shows no sign of Tweetbot in Documents and Data under Manage Storage in Storage and Backup.

    I attempted to contact their Tweetbot for iOS Twitter account, but received no reply (it was after five, though). But their basic troubleshooting is just that. Basic. Beyond that, they chock it up to iCloud being finicky, but this is clearly a bug.

    Have any of you tried doing a restore from scratch (not restoring from any kind of backup)? I'd do it, but I need iOS 5.0.1 on both of my iDevices for jailbreaking purposes.

    Restoring is an option but I have a jailbroken 4S so that's definitely not going to flow with me.

    I'm still convinced it's a bug in their app as iCloud works fine for all my other apps that utilize it as a syncing service, most notably Downcast. I guess I'll keep troubleshooting or live with Tweet Marker. I'm really hoping they're able to figure this out though.

    Tapbots has published an article on troubleshooting iCloud: iCloud Sync

    Thanks for that. I've already tried the steps they mentioned but still no luck in getting sync to work.

    I am having the same problem trying to sync via iCloud across my iPad and iPhone 4.

    The thing is and I think this may be it my iPhone 4s isn't on the latest IOS firmware as its jailbroken is this the culprit? it probably needs to be the latest version

    Resetting the account cache of both my accounts on my Mac, iPhone and iPad, as well as turning on iCloud-->Documents & Data-->'Use Mobile Data' and a reboot of both iDevices fixed it for me! :D
