Twitterrific 5 for iOS App Review

You may have already used Twitterrific for iPhone in one of its previous incarnations but even if that is the case, you may still want to consider this new version because it is more than just an update. Twitterrific 5 is a whole new app and it is better than ever so if you like to tweet and need a decent app to do so, then this may be the one for you. Twitterrific 5 is available now from the App Store for the introductory price of $2.99 so grab it now before it goes up to $5.99.

So what exactly is new about Twitterrific 5? This will become evident the moment you start it because the design has undergone a complete makeover and the result is something that looks minimalist but still has all the features tucked away for you to use. Some may find it too simplistic but I love this new design and for many the larger font and layout of the tweet in the timeline will be much more visually appealing. But you can also customise this with a lot of freedom over the fonts, text size, avatars and even brightness of the screen. You can basically make it look the way you want it to look, while secondary screens make navigation a much smoother and easier process.

With a simple interface comes simple controls and it couldn’t be easier to use. It looks very empty because the screen is not cluttered with buttons. Instead, you can summon them at will with a simple gesture and sweep them away when you do not need them. Tweets are plain but if you tap on them the options all become visible, while mere swipes allow you to reply or view the conversation. In fact, it is a pity there are not more swipe functions here as it works like a dream and an even more minimalist version with this feature would be great.

But that is hardly a flaw and what we do have is very good. A quick tap will take you to your profile and all the features that go with it, such as viewing your own feed, exchanges, favourites and all the other lists and menus Twitter has. This feature is even better if you opt for the iPad version as the screen is big enough to pin the menu to the side permanently if you so desire. In addition to this you can also sync with iCloud or Tweet Marker and the options here too are customisable.

Overall this is one of the best Twitter clients out there at the moment. Twitterrific was always likeable but it has never been better than this new version. The interface is nice and minimalistic but all the features and controls are present and correct. You may not be able to see them but a quick tap or swipe will soon fix that and the app is ultimately very quick and easy to use. If you tweet a lot then this may be perfect for you.
