The official Twitter for iPhone app has gone live in App Stores worldwide and may not only be the rebranded Tweetie 2 we thought it was. While this is the first official Twitter iPhone app, its being dubbed Version 3.0, given the fact it is essentially a redesign of the recently acquired Tweetie 2 app. However, it seems that there have been some new features implemented including improved search, in application sign-up, and many other minor tweaks. Full list of what’s new in Twitter for iPhone Version 3.0 and screenshots below.
There is still no word on a release date for the official Twitter for iPad app, although Twitter has confirmed its in the works. Until then you can use FullForce on your jailbroken iPad to run the Twitter for iPhone app in full screen.
What’s New in Version 3.0
Tweetie is now Twitter! We didn’t just do a name change, we’ve added a bunch of new stuff.
Search has been reorganized, now you can search all tweets and find users in the same spot, view Top Tweets and Browse Suggested users.
Search results now include Top Tweets, try it with Trends…winner combo!
You can now use Twitter without an account! Search, Browse uses, view trends and top tweets.
Sign-up is now availabile within the application as well, complete with Suggested user list.
More tab has been re-organized to accomplish all this. Users with one account can add a second account under the Accounts and Settings button here.
Actions we’ve found people use most, like Retweet have been moved to the main actions bar.
Minor tweaks were made to tweet rendering so they match Twitter.com tweets
