Unique social networking app Heyku has just been updated to add a number of new features.

As the name suggests, the app revolves around writing and browsing modern takes on the traditional Japanese haiku – three lines of text, but with a flexible limit on syllables.

Version 1.0.6 of the app is highlighted by a completely redesigned user interface that is very well designed and easy to navigate.

Users can also now tag and search Heykus based on themed hashtags. And to help add a visual aspect to the written word, a picture from a user’s Camera Roll can be “attached” to the back of the Heyku.

Finally, along with the default feed being changed to followed users, the update also offers a “Popular Now” feed.

Heyku is designed for the iPhone/iPod touch but is compatible with the iPad. It can be downloaded now in the App Store for free.

Even though I was only able to use Heyku for a few minutes, I was really impressed with the app.
