Facial recognition isn’t really something you immediately think about when you think about a Twitter client, but Twitterrific has actually added the innovation in a clever way to its most current upgrade for iOS. Utilizing Apple’s API for choosing faces in a scene (you probably see this in action the most in the Electronic camera app), Twitterrific now enhances rich media previews by focusing images around people rather than cropping around the center. You can see a previously and after comparison above revealing the brand-new function in action.

The brand-new feature works instantly once you update to the most recent version of the app and deals with previews for videos as well as images.

In addition to creative facial recognition techniques, Twitterrific also now supports alerts for Twitter’s brand-new quote tweet format. Now when someone else quotes your tweet in their own, Twitterrific can send an alert similar to a mention or follow alert to let you know someone is estimating your tweet.


The upgrade also adds support for the popular swipe to get back gesture that makes using larger iPhones one-handed much simpler. Twitterrific likewise recently included an option for moving the tab bar navigation from the top to the bottom which is handy for larger screens.

Twitterrific 5.12.1 is a complimentary update to existing users. New clients can try Twitterrific 5 totally free from the App Store while in-app purchases eliminate ads and include features like push notices and tweet translation.
