Today marks a new era for our venerable Twitter client, Twitterrific. We’re pleased to say that with the 5.7 update, Twitterrific is now free to download from the App Store. It is supported by revenue from Deck Network ads displayed at the top of the timeline and in-app purchases that unlock advanced features such as push notifications and tweet translation.
Twitterrific has been available in the App Store since day one and we’ve experimented with different revenue models in the past, including the one we’re returning to today. Our hope is that this helps get Twitterrific into more people’s hands than ever before so they can enjoy the simple beauty of reading and posting tweets once again. The update also includes some improvements including upping the number of tweets the timeline can hold to 500, something users have been requesting more and more.
Twitterrific 5 has been hailed by critics and users alike as one of the most beautiful and fun to use applications in the App Store. Today’s update makes the app accessible to a larger audience than ever before, something we’re very excited about. Existing paid customers are grandfathered into the new model and don’t have to do anything to keep enjoying the app and all of its features.
The app is free and available directly from the App Store as a universal download (both iPhone and iPad) today. If you’ve not tried Twitterrific yet, there’s no reason left not to give it a whirl. Help us spread the word, enjoy!
