Twitter Updates its iOS app Just in Time for iOS 5 Integration

Today is October 12th, the expected date for the launch of Apple’s new iOS update with Twitter integration. Twitter has reportedly upgraded its iPhone, iPad and iPod touch app with plethora of new features among which photo sharing is worth mentioning. Twitter is now alone in updating its iOS app; there are other developers who are updating their apps following the launch of iOS 5 update.

Twitter updated its iOS app just a day before the expected due date for the latest iOS 5 version. The updated version 3.5.0 features an upgraded direct messages design for iPad that is capable of sorting out DMs in chronological order and/or by thread. Furthermore, the updated version offers an improved sign up experience as well as full integration of Twitter’s picture service, i.e. pic.twitter.com. You can capture an image on your smartphone and then upload it directly on the picture service. Twitter announced its photo sharing feature to all its users back in August in preparation for iOS 5.

With updated app, you can tap a location on your iPad device. This will allow you to view nearby tweets. This feature certainly will force you to think as if you have activated the location sharing by tweets. Anticipating the today’s iOS 5 release, Twitter has also included minor improvements as well as few fixes for vulnerabilities.

It was in June when Twitter released a first instance of Twitter’s integration of iOS 5. These day old tweaks will certainly hint towards the Twitter’s preparation for official transition to expected iOS 5 release. It was announced at Apple’s media event held on October 4th that the latest iOS 5 will be launched on October 12th, two days before the scheduled shipment of latest iPhone 4S.

This new update will make Twitter to contend with Moby, Twitpic and Heello. The updated version of Twitter’s iOS app is available on App Store.
