Today, Apple launches the seventh generation of its mobile operating system and we’re pleased to report that our popular Twitter client, Twitterrific, is ready for the new OS. Twitterrific 5.5 is now available in the App Store and brings with it an updated interface as well as performance improvements, a host of new features & more.

Twitterrific 5 already sported a clean, easy to use interface prior to iOS 7, but now more than ever the app’s focus is squarely on your Twitter content. Minimal menus and navigation controls lets your timeline shine, the redesigned sidebar flows seamlessly into the feel of iOS 7 and the new in-app browser offers standard controls for ease of use. iOS 7 has also allowed us to add the ability to fetch tweets when Twitterrific is placed in the background so new content will be there waiting for you when you return.

Other notable improvements in 5.5 include:

  • Support for Safari Reading List bookmarking
  • Ability to turn on in-app browser’s mobilizer mode by default
  • Swiping from the left edge of the screen to open the sidebar
  • Support for opening links in Chrome
  • Bug fixes and more

Twitterrific 5 has already 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 embraces and extends that design philosophy to iOS 7, something we’re very excited about. The app is currently on sale directly from the App Store for just $2.99. Version 5.5 is available starting today for users running Apple’s new iOS 7 operating system via the App Store’s software update. Enjoy!
