Twitter haven’t exactly been the best at updating their apps (Twitter for Mac hasn’t had an update since last year) but they’ve just rolled out a new update for the iPhone and iPad which includes a refreshed UI for the iPad version.
New features include an expanded view of tweets from certain providers which shows a preview of the article. A stream of recent images on profiles as well as new headers. The app also contains similar updates for the iPhone version and has bug fixes and “polish” according to the release notes.
Twitter is trying to give users as consistent an experience as possible and have announced a slew of changes to the service and its API’s and this seems to be the first steps in that new direction.
Here are some screenshots of some of the changes and the app can be downloaded here
Twitter have also announced on their blog the Android app will be getting an update too. No word on a Tablet UI there yet though.
