Appearances Can Be Appealing

December 13, 2017

Today we’re releasing updates for both the macOS and iOS versions of Twitterrific that include a host of new features and improvements for Themes, Muffles, and much more.

Key among these improvements is an updated Appearance panel that now includes new customizable avatar shapes and themes. Set user avatars to display as rounded rectangles, circles, squares or even squircles. In addition, Twitterrific on iOS now supports Apple’s Dynamic Type for a greater range of text sizes and increased granularity when adjusting font sizes. Turn on Dynamic Type under iOS Settings > General > Accessibility > Larger Text and Twitterrific will automatically adjust text size accordingly.

New Black theme designed for iPhone X in Twitterrific 5.18

We’ve also added something users have been craving since Apple announced the release of its new iPhone – a true black theme for iPhone X. Running Twitterrific with this new theme looks amazingly sharp and feels great. The timeline and user profiles seem to extend right off the edges of the device creating a wonderful visual experience. We think you’ll be pleased. Lastly, the update includes redesigned versions of Twitterrific’s light and dark themes, both of which have been adjusted for greater contrast and clarity across platforms.

Other improvements include being able to disable Muffle rules without deleting them, the ability to completely turn off media on iOS, inclusion of experimental support for Twitter polls on iOS and a fun holiday edition of our app’s icon called ‘Jolly Ollie’. Finally, an important fix for a Mac memory leak that was causing Twitterrific to use more RAM than was necessary over extended periods of time.

Today’s fixes and improvements are recommended for all Twitterrific users. Be sure to check out the complete list of what’s new in Twitterrific 5.2.2 for macOS and 5.18 for iOS and then download the updates from the App Store. Enjoy!
