Chimp For Goes 2.0 And Goes Bananas With New Features And Improvements

June 21, 2014
Chimp — the client that supports rich-media posts and messages including images, audio, video, and location — has just gone bananas with its latest update. In a good way, of course. Released in April last year, Chimp has been updated to version 2.0 with a number of new features and improvements. There's the addition of muting by hashtag, thread, or client. There's also the much-requested stream marker support as well as the much welcome URL scheme support using x-callback-url. Chimp 2.0 also features a photo gallery view for photos and the ability to long-press links to open in browser, share via email, or add to Safari Reading List. Moreover, the app now supports cross-posting to Twitter, the social network that is supposed to be an alternative to. It also includes support for the popular third-party predictive keyboard Fleksy. Chimp 2.0 also includes the following enhancements:
  • NiceRank filter for Global timeline
  • Optional display of latest photos in a PM channel
  • Improved @ mention completion
  • Improved mark down support
  • Quick sharing of Now Playing and last photo
  • Draw something to add to a post
  • Font size set using iOS Dynamic Type
  • Performance improvements
Some UI tweaks have also been applied to Chimp to give it more polish. Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 6.0 or later, Chimp 2.0 is available now on the App Store as a free update or as a new $1.99 download.
