Just as expected, Twitter has unveiled a minor update to its official app that compliments the look and feel of iOS 7. Along with the fresh coat of paint, a blog post from Twitter reminds users of some features integrated with iOS 7:
Twitter is a universal app designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad/iPad mini. It can be downloaded now in the App Store for free. As for me, I’m anxiously awaiting an iOS 7-inspired update from Tweetbot. Hopefully, I won’t be waiting for long. And as we reported on Monday, this update is very small compared to what Twitter has in store for iOS users. The revamped app, which will be released in the “near future,” will do away with the very familiar four tabs at the bottom of the app’s screen. Instead, users will be greeted with a number of content-focused streams to explore. The entire experience will feel more like the current app’s Discover tab that focuses on multimedia content. Television fans should also be happy with a reported new stream in the app focusing on TV-related tweets and conversations.
- In the Music app, you can discover music that’s trending on Twitter through the Twitter #music station on iTunes Radio.
- Siri now searches Twitter, helping you find Tweets about topics or people.
- In Safari, use Shared Links to enjoy links that have been tweeted by the people you follow.
