Twitter for iPad available worldwide from the App Store takes advantage of iPad’s fluid touch interface, letting you move lots of information around smoothly and quickly – without needing to open and close windows or click buttons.
Here’re some features:
- Panes: Tapping on a Tweet opens a pane to right. Depending on Tweet content, you’ll see a video, photo, news story, or perhaps another Tweet. You can continue tapping on Tweets, opening new panes. And, to move between panes just swipe to right or left.
- Media: When you tap a video link or open a web page with an embedded video, you can play video inline. The panes in Twitter for iPad let you look through your timeline while video is loading, and then you can just swipe back to video when it’s ready to play. Pinch on a video to watch it fullscreen.
- Gestures: You can pinch on a Tweet to quickly view details about the author and to take actions on a Tweet, such as reply or retweet. Put two fingers together and pull down on a Tweet to peek at replies, showing the entire conversation leading to that Tweet.
