Twitter update brings leaked changes

Google and Twitter have each launched major app updates for iOS. The latter has released Twitter 4.3, bringing expected upgrades such as expanded tweets, which show content previews for links connecting to unspecified "partner websites." In the final release notes, Twitter also mentions that the feature is only "rolling out gradually."

Some other changes include curated events, Hungarian support, push notifications for posts by specific Twitter users, and "ambient" notifications that pop up while a person is still in-app. Twitter is also promising performance improvements, and the ability to check user profiles by tapping avatars.

Google, meanwhile, has posted v3.0 of the Google+ app. The update marks the introduction of a native iPad interface, which takes advantage of the extra screen space to feature more options and/or content onscreen, including larger images. The app in general now also supports Google+ Events, as well as starting or joining Hangouts. Hangouts allow video chats with up to nine other people.

Finally, Instant Upload photos can be attached to posts. The Google+ app should work on any iOS device running iOS 4.3 or later.
