Twitter App Updated to 3.2 with Push Notifications and More

Twitter has just pushed an update to their iPhone and iPad app. The most notable change for the iPhone app right now is the addition of Push Notifications. Here’s what the folks at twitter had to say on their blog about version 3.2:

Whenever an account that you follow mentions you, you’ll immediately receive a notification. You’ll know who is talking to or about you on Twitter, and you’ll be able to continue the conversation in real-time. Notifications for @mentions will initially be available on SMS and on the latest version of Twitter for iPhone, which you can download today from the App Store.

In addition to @mentions, we’re also bringing push notifications for Messages to Twitter for iPhone, as we’ve already done with SMS and Twitter for Blackberry. We’re working hard to introduce this feature to Twitter for Android and Twitter for Windows Phone soon.


I’ve been using Simplytweet for my iPhone twitter needs, which includes Push. If your client doesn’t have push, Boxcar can push @mentions right to your iPhone for free as well.

Here’s what’s new in the update:

iPhone:
* Improved display of shortened URLs
* Correctly load reserved Twitter.com paths, such as http://twitter.com/newtwitter
* Fix connection error caused by a device clock being set incorrectly
* Additional retina graphics
* Enable geotagging in your account with one tap

iPad:
* Inline media
* Manage saved searches
* UI improvements

Other changes include Retina display graphics, easy geotagging, and more. For those unaware, the twitter app is formerly known as Tweetie, the brain child of Loren Brichter.

  • Weird I thought it already had notifications. Anyways I keep my notifications off, I find them too annoying on the iPhone.

  • Yeah, with every app begging for Push Notifications, you definitely have to
    be selective about which ones you want popping up.

    This is a much needed update. This app becomes awesome again.
