Considered only a minor release, TweetyPop v1.03 could be deemed significant by some due to some very important bug fixes. Today’s TweetyPop update is focused on correcting issues, however, TapFactory did toss in a single feature addition.
A week ago, TweetyPop v1.01 hit the App Store, but the Twitter client’s first update didn’t bring smiling faces to some customers. Several of us were upset with a launch crashing bug that made the app completely useless. Before I went beyond the standard iPad reboot troubleshooting step, I came across a tweet by TapFactory — using my previously chosen Twitter app — acknowledging the problem and promising a fix pronto.
Sure enough, as soon as Apple was able to approve it, the next TweetyPop update fixed things right up. Speaking of fixing things up; further corrections made through TweetyPop v1.03 include:
• Errors with tweets disappearing has been fixed.
• Null to null has been fixed, really.
• TextExpander support is properly integrated – The settings switch allows user input and we respect the setting when composing tweets
The single new feature of TweetyPop v1.03 is language translation. Tap on the action arrow at the bottom-right of the tweet bubble you wish to convert into your default language, then tap on Translate Tweet. The results aren’t always perfect and the function only supports certain languages, but it’s usually better than nothing. As a final note to this feature, the Translate Tweet option becomes Original Tweet once a tweet has been converted; making it easy to switch back and forth.
TweetyPop is compatible with iPad running iOS 3.2 or later, and available in the App Store now at the discounted price of $.99.
