Twitterrific 5 For iOS Available In App Store

  on

Developers continue to invest efforts in creation of new Twitter clients despite Twitter discouraging clients that emulate functionality of its own apps. A case in point is the launch of Twitterrific 5 for iOS, Dec.5.

Developed by the Iconfactory, the new app is available in App Store for $2.99, The Verge has reported.

The app comes with a revamped user interface that offers a bright vision of Twitter and allows several customization options designed to appeal to a wide range of audience.

The 5.1 MB app can be synced to the iCloud and automatically translates foreign language tweets into the user's language, SlashGear has reported.

Apart from a host of new offerings, there is a redesign of Following, Followers and people search pages that display people in grid view instead of list view.

Among the noteworthy features that accompany Twitterrific 5 are pull-to-refresh, fast account switching, gestures for replying or viewing conversations, iCloud/Tweet Marker syncing for timelines with Twitterrific for Mac and offline support for favorite tweets.

Twitterrific 5 is universal where one price applies to an iPhone and iPad app.

Though several new features have been created, Twitterrific is far from feature-complete as there is still no tweet streaming over Wi-Fi, absence of gallery of images, header images, push notifications for mentions or direct messages among others, The Verge has pointed out.

Despite a few missing features, Twitterrific seems to stand out with its unique offerings. Compatible with the iPhone 3GS/4/ 4S/ 5, iPod Touch 3/4/ 5 generations and the iPad, it can run on iOS 5 or beyond.
