December 11, 2013

Osfoora, one of the most popular Twitter apps especially in the pre-Tweetbot era, has just been updated to version 2.0.

Osfoora 2 is actually the iOS 7 revision of the original Osfoora app. And like a number of iOS 7 revisions of other apps, it's made available as a brand new paid download, not as a free update to the previous version.

  • Local Notifications.
  • Send links via SMS within Osfoora.
  • Gap detection in timeline and mentions.
  • Bookmarking with Safari Reading List, Pocket, and Instapaper.
  • Mobilizer support via Google, Instapaper, and Readability.
  • Native retweet, and Retweet with Comment.
  • Sync your timeline between different clients with Tweet marker.
  • Inline image previews.
  • Multiple Drafts support. Acess drafts via long pressing the compose button.
  • Tweet what you're listening to (Music.app only), or choose from your library.
  • Upload photos to Twitter, img.ly, Mobypicture, TwitPic, and CloudApp.
  • Upload Videos to Mobypicture, TwitPic, and CloudApp.
  • Add location to your tweets.
  • Mute users and hashtags.
  • Multiple account support.
  • Pull to Refresh.
  • Open links in Safari or Chrome.
  • Conversation view. Shows replies too.
  • Threaded direct messages.
  • Various avatar styles: circle, rounded corners, and square.
  • View users on Favstar.
