Twitterrific, the truly terrific Twitter client developed by The Iconfactory, has just been updated with additional features and improvements.
A few days after the release of iOS 8, the iPhone 6, and the iPhone 6 Plus last month, Twitterrific was updated with improvements to its compatibility with iOS 8 and the new iPhones.
Now, the app has been updated to require iOS 8.0 or later and to leverage the use of sharing extensions in iOS 8 with its share sheet support. In line with this, bookmarking services such as Instapaper, Pocket, and Readability have been removed from the in-app settings, as these services are now accessible through their respective iOS 8 extensions in the share sheet.
The latest update to Twitterrific also adds the ability to search for any user to @mention when composing tweets. “Tap the search icon in compose to initiate a search,” The Iconfactory suggests. “Tap & hold a user’s avatar in search results to view their profile.” If you want to mention a user in your tweet, just tap the user’s avatar.
The new version of Twitterrific also includes the following improvements and bug fixes:
- Default browser setting to open links in Safari, Chrome or within Twitterrific
- Various UI improvements to the compose screen’s user suggestion bar
- Deleting and editing a tweet no longer keeps deleted pic.twitter links
- Slightly extended long-tap time throughout the application
- Reduced amount of disk space used by cached data
- Added muffling support for VoiceOver users
- Updated version of Proxima Nova font
- Autocomplete no longer interferes with inserting users in compose screen

- Load more button is now accessible via VoiceOver
- Fixed a crash when changing fonts on iPad
- Variety of fixes for crash-on-launch issues
