Twitterrific prepares for the future with a new update

One of the best third-party Twitter clients available on the App Store, Twitterrific, has just been updated to version 5.13 featuring a number of nice new features.

Most importantly, users can now take advantage of a hashtag autocomplete feature while composing a tweet. Just tap the # key and start typing to see some suggestions. If you don’t see the hashtag you like, just hit the X button or # to exit.

Ready for the future

Developer The Iconfactory has also made the app ready for iOS 9, which is currently in beta testing and will officially be released to the public sometime this fall.

Anyone running iOS 9 on their iPhone or iPad will now notice that the app supports Safari View Controller and the San Francisco font.

Safari View Controller allows third-party apps to provide a more native way to surf by allowing access to Safari cookies and the iCloud Keychain. That means if you’re logged in to a site on Safari, you won’t need to enter your credentials using the Twitterrific browser.

As you probably remember, Apple has switched the iOS 9 system font to San Francisco, and Twiterrific can now also mirror that in the app.

Final words

A universal app designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad/iPad mini, Twitterrific can be downloaded now on the App Store for free.

A number of other features can be unlocked with in-app purchases. If you don’t want to spend $4.99 to unlock all of the features, a $2.99 purchase will enable push notifications and allow you to use the wonderful Twitterrific Apple Watch app.
