Twitterrific update with iOS 9 and iPad multitasking support, new features and improvements

Twitterrific 5, The Iconfactory’s freemium Twitter client for iOS and OS X platforms, has received its iOS 9-focused update this morning.

The app is now fully optimized for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad devices running iOS 9 and supports new Slide Over and Split View multitasking modes on compatible iPads. If you own an iPad Air 2 or an iPad mini 4, you can now run Twitterrific and another app side-by-side in iOS 9’s new Split View mode.

This is a great feature as you can now pin Twitterrific on the right and configure it to use Safari as your browser instead of in-app. In addition to iOS 9-specific support, this edition of Twitterrific includes other changes and improvements listed further below.

Twitterrific for iOS improves accessibility, tag autocompletion, muting, translation and more

Twitterrific, The Iconfactory’s freemium Twitter client for the iPhone and iPad, was refreshed in the App Store this morning with a bevy of enhancements, including improvements to username and hash tag autocompletion, a feature introduced in Twitterrific’s previous update.

Twitterrific now uses facial recognition to properly frame subjects in media previews

The Iconfactory has issued a nice little update to Twitterrific 5, its freemium Twitter client for the iPhone and iPad, which brings out an interesting new feature that uses facial recognition algorithms to frame faces in media previews in your timeline.

And if you own an Apple Watch, Twitterrific has a new push notification type for quoted tweets as an opt-in feature in settings. Another enhancement: at last, you’re allowed to swipe from the left screen edge to go back or dismiss the current view, a productivity boost for iPhone 6 Plus owners wanting to use the app one-handed.

Twitterrific hits Apple Watch

Twitterrific developer The Iconfactory last evening announced immediate availability of Twitterrific for Apple Watch.

But don’t you worry, you’ll be able to fine-tune which Twitter notifications appear on your Watch so you don’t get inundated with unwanted alerts. Interestingly enough, The Iconfactory has opted for an unusual route of by requiring you to upgrade to Twitterrific’s push notifications via a one-time $1.99 In-App Purchase in order to unlock the full Apple Watch functionality.

Twitterrific for iOS now lets you edit tweets after they’ve been published

What if you could edit a tweet that’s already been tweeted out? A new Twitterrific for iOS update by Iconfactory lets you do just that! Now available free in the App Store, Twitterrific for the iPhone and iPad now lets you edit previously published tweet in your timeline.

This is a rather interesting development as even Twitter’s own iOS app won’t let you edit a tweet after it’s been posted. So, how did Iconfactory accomplish this? Read on for the full reveal…

Twitterrific 5 for iOS enhanced with several usability improvements, bug fixes

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…

Twitterrific 5 takes the freemium route, demands in-app purchases for advanced features

Iconfactory has just issued a new version of Twitterrific in the App Store. Previously a $2.99 download, the new Twitterrific version 5.7 has changed the business model from paid to free. Sort of.

The iPhone and iPad application, now supported by revenue from Deck Network ads displayed at the top of the timeline, is available free of charge for new customers, but some of the more advanced features like push notifications, Today view, ad removal and tweet translation are hidden behind a one-time in-app purchase.

That’s an interesting change for Iconfactory, but what about Twitter-imposed token limits? Developer Sean Heber ensures customers that Iconfactory has grandfathered a whole lot of tokens so going free should not be a concern. Besides, they can always switch from the freemium model back to the paid one…

Twitterrific gets a Flappy Bird inspired Easter egg: this is how to play it

The Flappy Bird drama has slowly begun to dwindle down, but there are still artifacts left over from the game’s immense popularity. For example, The IconFactory—creators of the highly regarded Twitter client Twitterrific 5—have planted a Flappy Bird inspired Easter egg inside its iPhone Twitter client called Ollie Soars.

Inside, we’ll show you how to access Ollie Soars by means of an easy to use gesture. The app even lends the ability to tweet your high score after you die. And die you will; I’ve found Ollie Soars to be significantly more difficult than Flappy Bird ever was. Check inside for the video.
