(07.Dec.12) The Evolution of Ollie

With the release of the re-designed Twitterrific for iOS, we thought it would be fun to take a look back at the evolution of Twitterrific’s user interface. Sparked by a tweet from Jason Stoff, we combed the archives and put together a fun visual overview of how the app has looked from 2008 to the present. Needless to say much has changed since those early days, but some concepts like Twitterrific’s unified timeline and color coding of tweets have stayed true.

All of us here at the Iconfactory are gratified by the wonderful reception Twitterrific has had by both the press and the general public. The new, clean interface has won the hearts of many and our focus on improving Twitter’s reading experience has really connected with users. Macworld says Twitterrific “brings elegance to the foreground” and gives the app 4 mice. We couldn’t be happier.

If you enjoy sneak peeks into how things are made, be sure to read Craig’s Behind the App blog post. He highlights what it took to make Twitterrific 5 a reality and where we’re headed from here.

If you’ve been enjoying Twitterrific 5, please help us spread the word about the app. Leave a review in the App Store, tweet about it to your followers, blog and like us on Facebook. The app is on sale for launch for just $2.99, so now’s the perfect time for friends to come on board. Thanks for your support, enjoy tweeting!
