Iconofactory has been teasing a completely redesigned Twitterific app since last weekend and now the software is being rolled out to international App Stores, starting with New Zealand and Australia. ”Rethought and rebuilt from the ground up”, Twitterific 5 represents a complete redesign of the app you know and, hopefully, have come to love. Its refreshed look is news in and of itself given Iconofactory’s artistic expertise and knowing Twitterific won an Apple Design Award.

Twitterific 5 brings with it a brand spanking new iPad interface and includes offline support, multiple account support, customizable themes, threaded DM view and timeline syncing using iCloud or Tweet Marker. More than a dozen other enhancements have made it into this update. I’m sure this release will put Iconofactory’s baby back into the game. Jump after the break for additional info and screenies…

I’ll update the article with the US App Store link as soon as it goes live.

Twitterific used to be my go-to Twitter client until TweetBot came along.

You probably thought Iconofactory gave up on Twitterific after they stopped updating it back in 2011.

Twitterific 5 looks gorgeous and the feature set is pretty appealing. Coupled with Iconofactory’s famous app design, there should be plenty of enhancements to attract attention of the mainstream consumer while keeping critics at bay.

I’m sure gonna give Twitterific 5 another try.

Have you ever used Twitterific and what did you think of it?
