Posted in Apple News, Apps, Mac on 29/03/2013 by J. Glenn Künzler


Twitter rolled out a massive update today for their popular TweetDeck Twitter management app for Mac, despite having announced plans to discontinue the iPhone, Android, and Adobe Air desktop versions of the app.


The update brings a number of highly-requested features, such as improved filters, enhanced column filters, a setting for wider columns, far more powerful search features, and more. Also included are numerous minor updates to make the app more consistent with the TweetDeck web interface.


From the release notes (via TheNextWeb):

What’s New in Version 2.7.1 

➤ Introduced column filters and powerful advanced search
➤ Added Content filters to columns and search including ability to filter by media, RTs, including and excluding terms
➤ Added Users filters to columns and search including ability to filter by verified users, members of a list and more
➤ Added wide column setting
➤ Added new font sizes to settings
➤ Spacebar now triggers page down event
➤ Cmd+W closes windows
➤ Social proof for favorites & RTs in detail view
➤ Added verified badge to list searches
➤ Enabled infinite scroll in temporary columns

All in all, it looks like a solid update, despite that it may well be the last one the app ever sees. TweetDeck is available for free from the Mac App Store.
