Twitter Unifying iPhone and iPad App UIs
Twitter said it is bridging the gap between its iPhone and iPad applications so users have the same experience no matter which device they pick up. The iPhone and iPad apps were originally developed separately, according to Twitter. This meant the iPad app often lagged behind the iPhone app in terms of features and capabilities. Moving forward, Twitter will rely on an adaptive user interface that takes into consideration factors such as the orientation of the phone or tablet, the size of the screen, and typography settings and constraints. Twitter believes this will allow it to support a broader range of iOS devices in the future, no matter the screen size or resolution. Twitter further thinks it can add new features faster, such as those that take advantage of the multitasking powers included in iOS 9. Twitter said the new version of Twitter for iOS is rolling out to iPhone and iPad owners now.
