Twitter iOS app gets iPad, photo-oriented enhancements

Official client makes better use of iPad screen space

Twitter has released a major update of its iOS app, v5.0. The software concentrates mainly on improving the iPad interface, for example by adding a landscape view, and offering in-line expanded views of tweets that can present photos, videos, and webpages without automatically having to jump into another app. The app's design has, typically, been heavily iPhone-centric.

The iPhone and iPad interfaces now support profiles with header graphics, and photo streams for both profiles and events. Remaining changes are limited to minor "improvements, polish, and fixes," according to Twitter.

The app is a free download, and runs on any device supporting iOS 5.0 or later. The update comes just a day before the release of iOS 6, and a few days before the arrival of the iPhone 5, for which Twitter may want to ensure it has its best possible code in place. While an optional download, the app is effectively integrated into iOS and may be one of the first things any new iPhone buyer will download.

    Have you guys actually used the previous iPad version?
    That one had a proper landscape mode. The fact that you could watch a link while at the same time looking at other tweets was amazing. Now in landscape mode there's lots of wasted white space.
    This looks like a v1 product. Instead of going forward they went two steps back.
