Twitterific for Mac and iOS updated, adds timeline syncing

updated 01:45 am EDT, Wed August 10, 2011

Camera+ support, improved Lion scrolling

IconFactory has announced an update for their Twitter app, Twitterific v4.3 for Mac OS X and iOS, which adds support for syncing reading positions across the Twitter timeline across all platforms, and also adds improved scrolling in Lion, support for viewing iOS photography app Camera+'s images inline and the usual assortment of minor improvements and fixes. The update also improves and Twitter picture handling, adds support for tweet notifications via Growl in the Mac version of the app, and more.

Version 4.3 uses a Tweet Marker API to keep track of where a user is their timeline, displaying it as a bookmark. Opening Twitterific on another device will inherit the bookmark, and can automatically scroll to that position if desired. Timeline synching can also be turned on or off by the user as they choose.

Twitterific is a universal iOS app for the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch, with a separate app for the Mac available either via the Mac App Store or directly from IconFactory. The application is free for single-account use, and users can upgrade in-app to the full version, which enables multiple Twitter accounts and removes all advertising. The Mac full version is on sale to promote the new update, now selling for $5 (normally $10) for a limited time.

    I miss...

    I miss the previous version of Twitterrific... While the new one does have some nice newer features, I really do wish they would implement some of the older UI items in the new version...

    Things like having the window hide itself when you click in the background, as well as the original theme...

    re: I miss

    Yeah, I don't like how the new one handles hiding- especially if you do it wrong and it stops updating!

    The other thing I miss, and my biggest complaint, is that there is no option to use return to send a tweet- you have to use enter. This is entirely frustrating, and the developer refuses to implement this simple change which is how it should work from the start.
