(14.Oct.13) Twitterrific 5.5.2 Adds Twitter Profile Editing

Twitterrific 5.5.2 is now available in the App Store and brings with it support for editing user profiles.

The new profile editing view (accessed from your user profile or by tapping and holding on your avatar in the timeline) allows you to change your name, location, website, and bio information on the fly. You’ll also be able to pick new avatar and banner images and crop them to your liking from within the application. The view displays your avatar and banner overtop one another, so you can easily tell how the final changes will look in your profile and on Twitter’s website.

Other notable improvements in 5.5.2 include:

  • Performance enhancements when scrolling and loading the timeline
  • Improved application launch time
  • Bug fixes and more

Twitterrific 5 has been hailed by critics and users alike as one of the most beautiful and fun to use applications in the App Store. The app is currently on sale directly from the App Store for just $2.99. Existing users can update to version 5.5.2 via the App Store’s software update. Enjoy!

(17.Oct.13) Semiotic Standard - The Icongraphy of 'Alien'

Working as a set designer and concept artist on the classic 1979 space horror film “Alien”, visionary illustrator Ron Cobb created a set of industrial icons that presaged the look of iOS 7 by over 30 years. Intrigued by the similarities between the two, Iconfactory artist Dave Brasgalla adapted Cobb’s signage to the iOS 7 layout “grid” as a design exercise. Get the in-depth story on our design blog and download the icon set!
