The popular social network management and sharing app Buffer has just been updated to version 4.0 with universal support for iPad and optimizations for iOS 8.
Released back in December 2011 for iPhone and iPod touch, Buffer has finally been updated with universal support for iPad. “The Buffer app is now optimized and beautified for iPad!” the Buffer team proudly proclaims. “All the same functionality you love from the Buffer iPhone app can now be found on your tablet—the same awesome app, a new universally awesome experience!”

In addition to universal support, Buffer 4.0 comes with sharing enhancements made possible by iOS 8. Thanks in particular to iOS 8’s extension support, you can now share to Buffer directly from other apps, including Safari and any other app that works with iOS 8’s native share menu. Just make sure to enable Buffer’s share extension to be able to do so.
It’s worth noting that Buffer’s share extension allows for native retweets from other apps. For example, if you see a tweet you’d like to share while browsing Tweetbot, you can share that tweet as a retweet through Buffer without having to leave Tweetbot.
Buffer 4.0 also includes display optimizations for the larger screens of the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus.
