Good news for Twitterrific users this afternoon. The folks over at the Iconfactory have released an update to their Twitter client, bringing it to version 5.2.2. The update includes a handful of new features, as well as several bug fixes and improvements.
As for the new features, the app now supports the popular bookmarking service Readibility, and Droplr for image uploads. And the long list of improvements includes larger font sizes for the iPad app, more accurate timeline details, and more…
Here’s the full 5.2.2 change long:
• Added new bookmarking service: Readability
• Added new image service: Droplr
• The read/unread state of tweet timestamps are updated as you scroll
• Indicators in timeline tabs are updated as tweets are read
• Added VoiceOver feedback after performing profile actions (follow, unfollow, etc)
• Third party logins are now cleared out when a service is disabled
• Additional larger font size setting on iPad
• Compose attachment buttons are now disabled during @name autocomplete
• Fixed a bug that could cause replies to be counted more than once
• Improved reliability when clearing push notification badges
• VoiceOver no longer repeatedly announces new tweet count
• When composing replies, VoiceOver reads text first instead of original tweet
• Yfrog links now open in the in-app browser instead of the photo viewer
I’m sure the addition of Readability and Droplr support will be huge for some, but I’m really enjoying the other changes. Twitterrific’s timeline now looks and runs as smoothly as the best of them, and I can’t think of a single complaint or missing feature.
Of course, I’m still a diehard Tweetbot fan. But Twitterrific is quickly making its way into the alternate spot. If you’d like to check out the latest version of the app, you can find it in the App Store, for both the iPhone and iPad, for $2.99.
