Riposte, the App.net client that's billed as not just a "cobbled-together rewrite" of an old Twitter app, has just received a new update. Recommended by Christine as an app that brings a refreshing new mobile interface for the premium social network, Riposte has gained a number of significant improvements. Among these improvements are inline images, hashtag search, Droplr image attachment, Pinboard integration, and URL scheme support. The app's new update also adds a hashtag button to the new post toolbar. In addition, it enables you to mute or unmute a user from the user's profile page. The following new features are also included in the update:
The update also offers fixes, tweaks, and performance improvements that are literally too many to mention here. Optimized for iPhone and iPod touch running iOS 6.o or later, the new version of Riposte is available now in the App Store. Normally available for $4.99, the app is currently available for free. So, if you're an App.net user, now's the perfect time to check out Riposte. [gallery link="file" order="DESC"]
