Version 1.1.0

Submitted to Apple on July 28, 2009. Approved by Apple on August 7, 2009.

Version 1.1.0 is a major upgrade that includes many new features. Here are the highlights.

Push Notification Configuration

Twitbit 1.1 allows users to configure whether they receive push notifications for @mentions, direct messages, both, or neither. This configuration is done on a per-account basis. This means that if you have one account that receives more mentions than you care to be notified about and another account that doesn't, you can only receive mentions pushed to the second account. Both accounts can still have direct messages pushed to them.

Completely Redesigned Direct Messages

We've completely redesigned the workflow for direct messages. We've broken them out into their own tab, and the interface is based on the built-in iPhone Messages application.

Your most recent conversations are saved by the application, so they're ready for you as soon as you start the app. And each conversation gives you a threaded view, so you can see your conversations chronologically, how they really happened.

With push support built right in, you never need to send a text message again!

Landscape Mode

Twitbit 1.1 supports landscape mode when typing tweets and direct messages, within the embedded web browser, and in the photo browser (more on that below).

Built-in Photo Browser

Twitbit 1.1 includes a built-in photo browser that will show you full-size versions of user avatars, and loads images directly from Twitpic, Yfrog, Tinypic, Twitgoo, and Mobypic. If you'd rather see the photo in the embedded web browser, just tap the action button and select "View in Browser".

Saved Searches and Person Search

You can now save searches as bookmarks that can be run later. Just tap the "Save Search" button at the top of your search results.

Twitbit also saves your most recent searches, so even if you forgot to save that important search you did, chances are it'll still be in your recent searches list.

Twitbit also allows you to search for other Twitter users directly by looking up their username.

Improved Timeline Browsing

We've made a ton of improvements to browsing your timeline.

  • Twitbit will now remember where you left off. The next time you open the app, your most recent set of tweets are added to your tweets from last time. You can then scroll chronologically through your timeline and catch up on what you've been missing.
  • More tweet actions, including emailing a link to a tweet and opening it in a web browser.
  • Customizable re-tweet format.
  • View Twitter users by their usernames or full names.
  • More actions from within the embedded web browser, including emailing links, tweeting links, or opening the page in Safari.

Everything Else

We've made a ton of other minor UI improvements, and fixed any bugs we came across. The full set of changes is too long to enumerate in full.
