Twitterrific Now Takes Advantage Of Apple’s 64-Bit A7 Processor

Twitterrific, arguably the best third-party Twitter client for iOS right now, has been updated to take advantage of the new 64-bit A7 processor built into the iPhone 5s. It was one of the first Twitter clients to embrace iOS 7’s new design guidelines, and it appears to be the very first to support Apple’s new processor, too.

If you’re running iOS 7 and you don’t like the official Twitter client, then Twitterrific is the best third-party option the App Store has to offer. It looks terrific — Twitterrific-ific, you might say — and it offers all the features you’d expect to see in a great Twitter client. It’s also super quick now, too.

As much as I love Twitterrific, I did find it to be a little slow at times — particularly when it was opening up. But since installing the latest update on my iPhone 5s, it’s been noticeably quicker. Startup is quicker, scrolling your timeline is buttery smooth, and pulling up menus or loading conversations is almost instant.

The update also makes some minor design changes; when you swipe a tweet left or right to view a conversation or post a reply, white icons will now appear on themes backgrounds, making them easier to see than before. There are also “various performance improvements” throughout the app, and tweaks to theme colors.

If you don’t already have Twitterrific for iOS, it’s priced at $2.99, and it’s a universal app that’s compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. You can download it from the App Store now by following the link below.
