Twitterrific 5, the brand new version of the popular Twitter client for iOS, has finally flown the incubation coop.

As you may already know, we here at AppAdvice have been big fans of Tweetbot since its release on the iPhone last year and on the iPad last February. But it seems that the universal Twitterrific 5, which has just gone live in the App Store, is about to challenge our devotion to Tweetbot.

Twitterrific 5 constitutes a major overhaul. In fact, it looks so far removed from its previous version that it may as well be an entirely different app.

Of course, Twitterrific 5 is not all flash and no substance.
