Twitter for iPad brings clever UI elements

updated 12:35 am EDT, Thu September 2, 2010

Twitter for iPad made official

Twitter tonight posted its long awaited iPad update (free, App Store). The now universal app borrows the side navigation bar of Tweetie for Mac but has its own unique interface elements rarely or never seen in an iPad app, including slide-out panes. Tapping an update not only provides full information about the user but will show any relevant content to the tweet in-line, such as a website or an HTML5 video.

Panes update in the background and aren't locked to a particular position, making it possible to swipe a pane out of the way until a video is finished loading or it's otherwise time to return.

Also new are context-sensitive gestures. Pinching a tweet gets shortcuts to actions, while a two-finger pull will show the previous conversation attached to the update. As with Seesmic Look, it's possible to search for and track others without having to sign up for Twitter.

The update is available worldwide immediately, although automatic updates may incorrectly show the old version; a manual download should bring the right Twitter edition.

    Traditional RT

    It's still missing the traditional Retweet. Like Tweetie before it, the developer can't seem to come to terms that many people still like the traditional RT.

    Because of this, I end up sticking with Twitelator Pro.
