Riposte, the app we here at AppAdvice praised for bringing a refreshing new mobile interface for App.net, has just gone pro. That is to say, it has been updated with a pro in-app purchase package that offers power users a number of advanced features. Riposte Pro includes custom typefaces, quick view for private messages, draft auto-saving, quick account switching when writing a post, and quick account switching from any root view via two-finger swipe. Furthermore, it includes dark mode auto-toggling, brightness control gesture, "last photo taken" option for image attachments, full-quality image uploads, and status bar hiding. All of these Riposte Pro features can be unlocked via a $4.99 in-app purchase. As it happens, Riposte has also been updated with a number of improvements that you can take advantage of whether you go pro or not:
Optimized for iPhone and iPod touch running iOS 6.0 or later, Riposte is available in the App Store for free. Released last January, Riposte was originally priced at $4.99. But it went free in February, and has been free since then. If you were one of the first users who got Riposte for $4.99, you'd still have to shell out another $4.99 to get the new pro features. But no matter, as Riposte is easily one of the best App.net clients for iPhone out there, and is well worth its premium. [gallery link="file" order="DESC"]
