Twitterrific has long been one of the most popular 3rd-party Twitter clients for iOS, and today, IconFactory has made it even better, updating the app to version 5.2, and adding push notification support (for mentions, direct messages, favorites, retweets, and new followers), as well as a whole host of other assorted improvements and updates.
Previous versions of Twitterrific have lacked native push notifications, and the addition of native push should very significantly improve the performance and efficiency of those updates. Not all users will receive access to the new push notifications at once, however – it will be rolled out in groups of 1000 over the next several weeks to prevent overload.
The entire change log for the update is as follows:
-Push notifications (enable in settings)
-User banners now display on profile pages
-Discussions can now be shared via email or Storify
-Added Droplr thumbnails to the timeline
-Text size of muffled items scales according to theme settings
-The timeline can now display up to 600 tweets (was 400)
-Additional actions, like muffling, are available when avatars are hidden
-New compose shortcut: type “@” after username to prevent autocomplete
-Load more button now animates while loading new tweets in the timeline
-Improved behavior when restoring selected timeline with multiple accounts
-Improved formatting when emailing a tweet or group of tweets
-Improved performance when rotating display on iPhone/iPod
-Improved display performance when muffling many items
-Multiple in-app notifications no longer overlap
-Various changes to make VoiceOver less verbose
-Various other UI tweaks
-Mobilizer view can now display before page finishes loading
-Fixed problems where some web pages would display “Loading…” indefinitely
-Timeline syncing no longer causes the timeline to jump around while scrolling
-Fixed issues that caused the timeline to automatically scroll to the top
-Avatar button no longer flashes when dismissing a photo or modal view
-Fixed crashes that occurred when muffling a tweet that was already muffled
-Text entered on the compose screen no longer overlaps the reply reference text
-Fixed a crash that could occur when reaching the end of the timeline
-Replying to a retweet now puts usernames in the proper order
-Removed Img.ur thumbnails because they don’t always match the linked image
-Various other crash fixes
All in all, it looks like a fantastic update. Twitterrific is available now for $2.99 from the App Store.
