What's New

Version 1.1

The largest update yet! Added some things, changed some things, fixed some things, and removed some things.

• Added fetch-based notifications (Streams API is being shut down by Twitter soon so using the Mentions API to fetch from periodically - which means the app must be in an active state for these notifications to display, and only displays notifications for cases where you've been mentioned or replied to)
• The notification fetch rate can be set from the new settings section, and has been set to 30 seconds by default (a lower fetch rate results in more battery drain)
• Added onboarding cards to the app on first launch, which asks for permissions for notifications and Siri
• Record videos via the camera by long-holding the shutter button
• Drag the shutter button up whilst recording to zoom in
• Added video uploads when composing tweets (either select a video from the gallery, or capture a video via the camera)
• Added QR code detection to the camera, this presents a pop up when aimed at a QR code, allowing you to tap it to add the detected link to your tweet
• Tapping the 'tweet' button for tweets longer than 280 characters now presents the option to tweet the text as an image
• Added 'now playing' music to your tweet via the 'three dots' more icon (for songs played via the stock iOS music app)
• Better handling of theme switching from the quick switcher as well as the settings page
• Replaced the volume indicator to looks nicer, fixed for all devices so it displays correctly, doesn't flash on initial launch, and doesn't show the default HUD too accidentally
• GIFs now play in the Picture in Picture video player, displaying track progress too and can be played/paused like a normal video
• Jump to previous tweet scroll position
• Tap tab bar items to scroll back to previous position
• Added landscape video support
• Added verified/bookmarked/locked indicators to users (next to their name in the timeline, and next to their tag in profile sections, allowing for it to remain minimal and not draw too much attention to itself)
• Added alert for when posting a tweet fails
• Tweet now gets saved as a draft if it fails to post
• Text styling from the tweet compose screen now applies to selected text if text is selected, or to all text if it isn't
• Recreated inline link previews
• Added the ability to tap the image thumbnails next to links to enlarge them (also allowing you to see Instagram linked images)
• Added the ability to view YouTube videos natively in the app (tap the thumbnail next to YouTube links to view)
• Added four more hue/tint colours to choose from in the settings section
• Added four more app icons
• Condensed tweet headers to make the overall tweet waste less space
• Added new fluid pull-to-refresh mechanism
• Added new activity indicators
• Added subtle haptics when selecting images from the gallery
• Added swipe down in the camera to dismiss
• Removed thick cell separators from the 'large tweets' view for the sake of consistency
• Removed Fabric analytics and crash reporting tool from the app
• Changed up the 'swipe back from anywhere' code as there were a few memory leaks
• Fixed issue where setting app icons would freeze the app
• Fixed issue where background music would stop playing when entering the app
• Fixed issue where certain characters didn't transform with the text style options
• Fixed issue where translating tweets with line breaks would only translate the tweet up to the line break
• Fixed issue where inline link previews would display condensed link URLs
• Fixed issue where pull to refresh would sometimes not work
• Fixed crash when switching accounts from settings (drag your profile icon from your profile section to change accounts quicker)
• Fixed issue where switching accounts wouldn't refresh the timeline
• Fixed issue where there were duplicate users displayed in the mentions section activity popover
• Under the hood performance improvements
• Other minor fixes and UI tweaks

Developer Response

Way more stable and better in the latest version.

Good app. No notifications


I would love this app, once it adds notifications

So far so good

I do enjoy the app but there are a few things that should be added, like the ability to delete messages and to clear search history. Also we should be able to toggle on and off for media links, It’s kind of annoying seeing the link and I rather see the link that pops up on twitter with the picture so I can see what it is rather that clicking to find out. But I do like the design, & theme settings.
