Twitter 3.5 Comes to iOS Devices – Support for iOS5

Posted by at 4:18 pm on October 11, 2011

Twitter has geared for the launch of iOS 5 on Tuesday by posting the Twitter 3.5 app for iOS hardware. The new version has an “enhanced sign up experience” that uses iOS 5’s built-in Twitter integration to work. If users aren’t already signed in, they’re prompted for access to Twitter’s OS-level credentials and don’t have to sign in a second time; extra accounts are still allowed.

The version is also Twitter’s first for the platform to use its official photo sharing. Its switch lets users share directly through Twitter and get an archive of recent shots through the Photobucket-supplied service. Twitter’s change happens by default, but users are given the option to change it to TwitPic, yFrog, or another service almost immediately.

Extra improvements focus on the iPad, including a new Direct Message layout and the option of touching a location to see nearby updates in that area.

The update will still work on versions of iOS as far back as 4.0 and will keep all but the sign-on feature. Outside of the official photo service, none of the updates are likely to translate directly to future updates for Android.
