Twitterrific updates for iOS and macOS bring new themes, support for quoted tweets with images, more

Developer Iconfactory is out with the latest releases of Twitterrific for iOS and macOS. The updated versions include new themes, support for viewing full images, quoted tweets with images, and more.

Iconfactory announced the updates in a blog post. Headlining the updates are new themes for both the macOS and iOS versions and macOS now has support for quoted tweets with images and viewing full images.

Twitterrific 5.4 for macOS has been released with support for viewing full images right in your timeline, Twitter’s new quoted tweets with images, a bunch of great new themes and app icons and more! On the iOS side, Twitterrific moves to version 6.0.5 and gets a cool new theme, Trogon, plus speed improvements and important fixes for some nasty bugs.

The updates also unify Twitterrific’s themes between the macOS and iOS.

With these releases we have unified our themes across platforms which means you now have all of the same options on the desktop as you’ve been enjoying on iOS. If you’re feeling especially adventurous, you can even make your own theme files, drop them in Twitterrific’s iCloud Drive folder, and use them on every device.

Twitterrific for iOS is a free download from the App Store with in-app purchases starting at $1/month. Twitterrific for macOS costs $8.
