Twitterrific by Iconfactory, a great looking Twitter client for the Mac and iOS, got refreshed Tuesday with a plethora of improvements, enhancements and several new features. Bumped to version 5.8.2, the freemium app now lets you enable large image previews in your timeline.
You can adjust your settings between small and large image previews in the Theme panel. Tip: consider turn this option off when on cellular in order to optimize bandwidth use. The team has added another new font, Zosimo, to appease those that didn’t like the built-in Helvetica, Avenir, Proxima Nova, Signika, Museo Slab and Calluna fonts.
Twitterrific is free in the App Store, with In-App Purchases for unlocking additional features.
Twitterrific’s Today view (not to be confused with Today view in the Notification Center on iOS 8) now refreshes automatically when a new notification comes in and Twitter links shared using the multi-purpose iOS Share sheets now have more accurate titles.
Moreovere, you’ll be now taken back to Twitterrific from Chrome when using the Google browser’s back button. Check out the large image previews and account pictures in the timeline.
People with disabilities will appreciate a new shortcut to view a discussion: just double tap with two fingers on a tweet when VoiceOver is active. By the way, your switch to enable dark theme at night is now nested under the Theme panel as well.
Here are the new image related options in the Theme panel.
