Twitterrific 4.1 for iOS released, includes username auto-complete and spam reporting

Twitterrific IconHere's something to write up to 140 characters about. The Iconfactory deployed version 4.1 of its award winning Twitter client, Twitterrific, to the App Store on Thursday. The new version offers users a smorgasbord of enhancements and bug fixes.

Macworld's "Twitter Client of the Year" in 2010 and a favorite among many of us here at TUAW, Twitterrific is available for free as an ad-supported version. An in-app upgrade allows customers to ditch the advertisements and manage multiple Twitter accounts for US$4.99. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and requires iOS 4.0 or later.
