Twitter iOS app updated to allow installation, launching of apps from tweets

Twitter updated its iOS app to version 5.5 and added support for its Twitter Cards feature. Twitter Cards let developers and content creators attach media and links to Tweets. In the iOS app, it'll let users tap a link in a tweet and view content directly in an app that is installed on their iOS device. If an app is not installed, users can launch and install an app directly from a link within a tweet.

Besides Cards, the latest Twitter for iOS app also includes the following improvements and bug fixes:

  • Faster launch times and general performance upgrades
  • "Retweeted by" in Tweet detail is now tappable
  • Fix for reply-to-self in conversations
  • Fix for bug that prevented undoing retweets in some cases

You can download Twitter for iOS for free from the iOS App Store.
