If you’ve been reluctant to purchase Iconfactory’s excellent Twitter client for iOS, Twitterrific, there’s no longer any reason not to give it a whirl as the team last month took the freemium route by making the app free with ads.

Of course, in-app purchases are available to unlock specific advanced features such as push notifications, ad removal and tweet translation. Now available free in the App Store, the freshly updated Twitterrific version 5.7.1 brings out several improvements and bug fixes, detailed after the jump…

The app will no longer queue your tweets like before in an effort to “prevent accidental duplicate posts,” developers said. Older Twitter status links now open in Twitterrific and the app will now properly zoom in on the image when double-tapping in the photo viewer.

You should also appreciate an improved formatting of links sent from Twitterrific via email.

And if you hate ads as much as I do, you’ll be delighted to learn that the team has added several new safeguards to prevent web ads from automatically opening Safari

Moreover, this edition of Twitterrific includes the following bug fixes:

  • New tweet counter desaturates properly when behind popup views
  • Favoriting tweets from blocked accounts no longer results in a queue loop
  • RTs no longer display as “RT’d by and you”
  • Various crash fixes

Download Twitterrific 5.7.1 free in the App Store.

The app is universal and requires iOS 7.0 or later.

Several in-app purchases are available to remove ads ($1.99) and enable push notifications ($1.99)/tweet translation ($1.99) features. A one-time $3.99 in-app purchase unlocks everything.

    I have the full version of Twitterrific but Tweetbot has the market cornered for 3rd party clients. If Tweetbot were to go belly up, Twitterrific would be my next choice.

      Tweetbot will eventually run out of access tokens just like every other Twitter client…

        That’s exactly why I purchased Twitterrific. It’s well known to be the next best thing for iOS so as crazy as it may seem I purchased it so that I got a token to use it if I needed to. Now that Twitterrific is free I suspect tokens will go fast.

    I quite like the Messenger app, it looks good and works well, but by God I hate this new move. There’s nothing more irritating than having to switch apps just to read-reply and then switch back. Hopefully they just hide it so it can be re-enabled using Flex
