Twitterrific issued a couple of notable updates for its macOS and iOS apps today that include new haptic feedback, chronological threads, and more.
First up, version 5.18.3 of the third-party iOS Twitter interface introduces haptic responses whenever a user likes or retweets content, or pulls down to refresh a thread. On that note, and in a move that should please users keen to switch away from Twitter's native app, threads in Twitterrific now display in chronological order for consistency.
Elsewhere, the developers have made it easier to display and hide reference tweets when replying to or quoting them. Users can now tap the original tweet to expand and collapse it, which allows for a lot more screen space when composing on smaller devices.
A couple of interface tweaks have also been implemented to improve the user experience, such as moving the unread indicator dot beside the timestamp, to make it less distracting. Lastly, push notifications and the Today view now work from behind more firewalls and proxies, while a Report Abuse option has been added to the tweet actions menu.
Apart from the haptic features, the above improvements have also been implemented in Twitterrific v5.2.3 for macOS, along with some additional tweaks.
For example, clicking a mention/message notification will now re-use an available account window rather than opening a new one on the desktop. Tooltips have also been added to tweet action buttons and the main window tabs, while an Option-Tab keyboard shortcut is now available for switching between thread/replied tabs.
