We’re pleased to announce a small point update for Twitterrific, our popular Twitter client for the iPhone, iPad and Mac that makes several key usability improvements. Version 4.4.6’s most notable improvement is in the area of timeline gap handling. After long delays between refreshes, tweet gaps of several hours can appear in the timeline leaving holes that cannot easily be read. This latest version attempts to solve gaps by automatically loading the missing tweets for you, leaving you with a more complete picture of what’s being tweeted.
We’ve also added support for a 3rd party application called Summly. iPhone users who have Summly installed on their device can now tap and hold on a URL to have it sent to Summly and summarized into bite-sized chunks that are quick and easy to read. This works great for longer web articles when your time is at a premium. We hope you’ll check it out, we’ve found it quite handy.
