Twitterrific 5 for iOS updates with UI tweaks, new Today view, and more


Twitterrific 5 has just been updated with a lot of changes, including fixes, improvements, and additions to the already great Twitter client. New in the update to version 5.2.3 is a few UI tweaks (look above), some new features, including a new “Today” view, and various fixes. The UI tweaks, as you can see above in the “Home,” “Replies,” “Direct Messages,” and “Compose” tabs and button at the top of the app, are thinner and lighter in nature, most likely to bring them up to speed with the new iOS 7 design language. These new images and types of changes are found throughout the UI. Also included is a new “Today” view that shows you favorites, retweets, and new followers from the past day. For a list of new features, see the change log here:

What’s New in Version 5.2.3


• New sidebar item: Today
– Quickly view your most recent favorites, retweets, and new followers
– Available when push notifications are enabled in settings


• Updated visual appearance
• Images in the photo viewer are maximized for the current screen size
• In-app browser now plays audio for videos even if the device is set to silent
• When replying to multiple users, secondary usernames are auto-selected for quick deletion


• Fixed wrapping issues with profile text formatting
• VoiceOver no longer reads incorrect names on DMs
• Fixed an issue with saving conversations to Storify
• Protected image uploads to Droplr use the correct link format
• Avatar size setting no longer reverts when avatars are disabled
• Fixed a crash caused by invalid URL parameter
• Retweets are now displayed correctly on Favstar
• The Open Page option for hashtags now opens the correct page

As you can see, the Today requires that you have push notifications enabled, as it uses that information to populate the new section. Other improvements include the ability for the in-app browser to play audio while the device is on silent mode, and now when replying to multiple users, the secondary usernames will be pre-highlighted (auto-selected) in case you want to delete those real quick. I personally use this application as my goto Twitter client on iOS, and have ever since it supported push notifications. I love the design of it, and it fits in great with iOS 7 already. You can see my review here from when it was first released: Twitterrific 5 Review. Get the app for $2.99 here: Twitterrific 5 for iOS.
