Twitter for iPhone Gets new Design and Major Updates [Download Now]

By  at Thursday, December 08, 2011  

Twitter has rolled out a new update for iPhone app, this new version is dubbed as version 4.0 and came with many major changes. It shows an entire new user interface which gives the old twitter app an elegant look. Twitter has also updated its Android app and the Website. A couple of new things have been added in this new update.

So, this new version is said to be faster, sleek and simple as compared to the earlier version. But one thing which we have noticed is that the twitter team has removed swipe options. Now, if you want to reply or favorite a tweet, you will need to load the tweet and do the desire action rather than the simple swipe.

However, the old @mentions has been changed with the connect and it shows now all the things under the same hood, your mention, favorite tweets or retweets. However, a new tab is also added, Discover, which is actually replacement of the hashtags, so it shows all the trends and the ongoing stuff. While the last thing is the, me, this new tab shows all the information about you.
After testing the complete application, we have come to point that this new version is better but the removal of swipe,adds just another tap which is not a good thing.
As posted on iTunes:
The latest version of Twitter offers a faster, simpler way to stay close to everything you care about on your iPhone.

Home is where you start from: a personal collection of Tweets from the sources you care about. The Tweet details show rich information such as replies, retweets and embedded images.

Connect is the place to see who followed or mentioned you, retweeted or favorited one of your Tweets. It’s where you keep the conversation flowing.

Discover is where you can tap into the stories and trends people are talking about in your world. You can also find friends, browse interests, and explore hashtags here.

Me puts you and your interests front and center. From here you can exchange Direct Messages with your followers.
