Twitter updated, allows users to install and open apps from tweets

Twitter for iOS has been updated, adding the ability to install and launch apps from tweets. Apps with support for the latest Cards functionality will automatically add a link to open or install the app when a user tweets from it, along with a short description of the app.

Twitter says that this update also contains general performance enhancements, including faster launch times. “Retweeted by” in tweet detail is now tappable. There were also a couple of bug fixes, including one that prevented users from undoing retweets.

If you use Twitter for iOS, let us know what you think of these changes.
