The Iconfactory Releases Twitterrific 6 for iOS

I was excited to be testing Iconfactory’s Twitterrific 6 for the last few days. Twitterrific’s whimsical design has long been appealing to me, and the crew at Iconfactory take it to a great new level with this version.

Here are the things that stuck out to me while I used it:

  • Great colorful themes
    I’m not a light theme user when it comes to browsing tweets, and Twitterrific 6 comes with five new themes my favorite being Puffin. Every theme is named after a bird, which is incredibly on brand and gives me a chuckle.
  • Unobtrusive Ads
    I’ve talked a lot about my distaste for ads, but it’s never been that I dislike all ads. I hate obtrusive and targeted ads. Twitterrific 6 has a beautiful and well-designed ad spot at the top of the timeline that doesn’t violate your privacy nor sours your experience. In fact, its placement, size, and supporting background colors is a masterclass of what an ad should be.
  • Customization
    The level of customization is fantastic. Don’t like the default icon? Don’t worry, there are seventeen to choose from. Sick of the system font? No problem, pick from a list of ten other typefaces. And these are just two examples, Twitterrific’s extensive customization is simply delightful.

All in all, Twitterrific 6 is an excellent Twitter experience. Twitter’s antagonistic behavior towards third-party developers hasn’t stopped Iconfactory from shipping a quality app, which speaks volumes to the creativity and thoughtfulness of their team.

You can download Twitterrific 6 on the App Store for free, and I wholeheartedly recommend you do so. If you enjoy the experience, be sure to support this great team by subscribing monthly, annually, or paying a one-time $30 to remove ads for the life of Twitterrific 6.

I hope this new version and pricing model helps support Iconfactory and the making of Twitterrific for many years to come.
