Twitterrific by Iconfactory, a third-party Twitter client for the iPhone and iPad, has received an update Tuesday evening enabling extension support for AgileBits’ 1Password via Twitterrific’s in-app browser, in addition to taking advantage of the bigger iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus screens.
This version also includes more than a dozen bug fixes, improvements and enhancements. The 8.6-megabyte download is available free of charge in the App Store, with advanced features locked behind several In-App Purchases.
Again, the new version also enables native support for the larger displays of the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus.
Originally announced by both Iconfactory and 1Password developer AgileBits three weeks ago, integration with 1Password’s proprietary extension (not to be confused with third-party App Extensions in iOS 8) allows the app to use your passwords stored in 1Password to authorize you into websites accessed in Twitterrific’s built-in browser.
As depicted on the screenshots top of post, websites like Instagram and Vine can now be accessed without switching applications like before.
If you’re going to update your copy of Twitterrific to the latest available version (5.7.6), keep in mind that the update removes support for the once popular Twitpic image upload service.
This doesn’t come as a surprise knowing that Twitpic itself recently announced plans to shut down its service following a trademark dispute with Twitter.
In response, Twitter in a statement to Re-code said it was “sad to see” Twitpic go.

Twitterrific back in April received an interesting new feature allowing you to edit tweets after they’ve been published, with a caveat.
The month before, Iconfactory decided to make its stylish app a freemium download, with several advanced features available through In-App Purchases.
Twitter’s own iPhone and iPad app was updated last week with revamped profile pages and support for Interactive Notifications in iOS 8.
