Twitterrific for iOS gains support for drag and drop, Georgia font, new image picker & more

Just two days after Twitterrific for Mac picked up important multi-account features whilst cutting the price temporarily by as much as 60%, developer The Iconfactory has now pushed a similarly important update to Twitterrific’s iPhone and iPad app.

Twitterrific’s 5.18.4 update brings verified badges on avatars, an all new image-picker, support for iOS drag and drop of content into the app, a new font and a host of other changes.

Some of these features were added to Twitterrific’s Mac app update earlier in the week, including verified and protected badges on user avatars and the new Georgia font—a classic serif typeface with great readability.

If you own an iPad, you can now drag and drop supported content onto Twitterrific’s tweet compose sheet to quickly attach images and add URLs to the tweet. Or, if you’ve already copied some images to the system clipboard, you can tap on the text area of the compose sheet and select the Paste action to attach them to your tweet in one fell swoop.
