Today’s update of Twitterrific, our popular third party Twitter client, is full of improvements and fixes that are sure to enhance your tweeting experience. Version 5.14.4 now sports a handy search field at the top of most timelines that lets you quickly search for terms and tweets in no time flat. It also corrects several bugs associated with VoiceOver and Notification Center.
Most importantly, however, today’s release addresses a long-standing request we’ve received from users over the years – a way to donate additional funds towards the continued development of the app. To address this desire we’re pleased to introduce Ollie’s Tip Jar – a series of in-app purchases that users can voluntarily buy to help keep Twitterrific up and running.
The Tip Jar is our way of continuing to offer free and notable updates to Twitterrific while still (hopefully) paying for the cost of development. Since it’s launch in December of 2012, Twitterrific has been updated over 40 times – all for free. Rather than stopping development on Twitterrific version 5 and launching an all-new paid version 6, we’ve decided to include the Tip Jar in the hopes that users who enjoy and love the app will give generously so we can continue to provide updates.
There are five levels of tips available ranging from Chickadee (99¢) all the way up to Peacock ($19.99). Once you donate, the jar removes itself from the app’s sidebar for 30 days and then returns, quietly waiting for your spontaneous generosity at some point in the future. The App Store has changed since we first published Twitterrific back in 2008, so we’re trying something new. We hope you’ll donate to the cause but if you can’t, that’s okay too. We thank you for your past support none-the-less.
Twitterrific 5.14.4 is free to try via the App Store and is universal for iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and iPod touch. Advanced features such as tweet translation, ad removal, and more are available via in-app purchase.
