    Twitter updated its official iPhone and iPad apps today. The most significant change is that all the official Twitter apps now sync the status of direct messages, meaning that DM's will not show up as 'unread' on multiple devices even after they've been read.

    The Twitter app also delivers "richer search results" and a new feature to discover new accounts to follow.
    The official Twitter for Mac client was also updated with new notifications in the @Connect timeline when tweets have been retweeted or favorited, as well as the new DM status syncing.

    Twitter for iPhone and iPad is a free download from the App Store. [Direct Link]

    This app still takes AGES to load on a 4S. 5.3 supposedly "improved" launch times. :rolleyes:

    Solid update, looks like they are only winning half the battle with DM syncing, timeline syncing would be great.

    Small steps I guess... :cool:

    I've always used Echofon, which has has syncing for years even to the Mac app. Usually use my own app for posting though *cough* signature *cough* ;)

    Mac App Notifications

    Hey there... question for you folks. I updated the Mac app (2.3.0) and now the notifications are back to going through Growl instead of Notification Center. Why is that? I was happier having these notifications going through Notification Center but now there doesn't seem to be a way to do that. The preferences only seem to allow for all notifications to go through growl. Am I missing an option to direct them to Notification Center?

    Twitter, both the web version and especially the iOS app are a big mess. Maybe they should shut down Vine now that Instagram took over and have more programmers work on Twitter. But then again Vine was a mess on its own, Instagram crapped all over it with the release of their own video service.

    Although instagram introduced its own video feature, I won't rush to use only instagram. Yes, instagram has 15 seconds of video, filters, bigger userbase and ability to share on twitter. But Vine is not just "videos for tweets". Vine is a stand alone app that has its own loyal users. Vine way ahead of instagram in terms of making a social-video app right. Just check Vine's "Popular Now" category. I promise you will laugh and not once. Instagram's "Explore" is just full of crap.
