Twitter for iPhone update brings back swipe shortcut
Twitter for iPhone has received yet another update and brings back some high-demand features including the swipe shortcut. There is also a nice clear warning that explicitly states that the Find Friends feature accesses your contacts' email addresses and phone numbers.
Some other new features include the ability to copy and paste the contents of a tweet, and share tweeted links. The Direct Messages UI has also been updated and now allows you to mark all messages as read. Lastly, you can adjust the font size from Settings.
It's great to see Twitter make these improvements, but I'm still not a fan of the overall look and layout of the app. Andrew also reports that the swipe shortcut is rather sluggish on his iPhone 4. But my opinion is by no means the only one, so let us know what you think about the update in the comments below! If you are using a different Twitter client, is this enough to bring you back to the official Twitter for iPhone?
It's important to note that although Twitter is a universal application for iPhone and iPad, these changes are only reflected on the iPhone.
