Twitterrific 5 for Twitter Review

Today, Twitterrific came out with their fifth major update to their Twitter client. This updated version comes with a myriad of updates from performance to usability updates. During the introduction period you can download the app for $2.99, after the introduction the app will increase to $4.99. The app is universal for both iPhone and iPad, no having to get two separate versions of an application for your different devices.

For the Twitter junkies out there, Twitterrific is a great app for doing that also allows customization of the interface. One of the big feature sets for this Twitter app is the ability to fully customize your experience from how big the text is to how much space is in between the text.

My only gripe about the app is the inability to customize services that are used within the app. I have always liked TweetBot because I could use a custom shortener and choose where I wanted to upload my pictures and other media.

  • Universal app for iPhone and iPad
