iOS Twitter client Twitterrific launches at 50 per cent off

The Iconfactory's Twitter client for Mac, Twitterrific, has received an update today. Twitterrific provides users with a unified timeline for browsing mentions, and direct messages from a single view. Version 5.5.3 offers a new layout for user profiles, and new pull-to-refresh animation. Users can view profile banners by tapping on them, and swipe upwards on a photo to dismiss the image viewer. Bug fixes are also represented in the update, preventing deleted tweets from re-appearing after refreshing, and resolving an issue where pinning the sidebar open on iPad would prevent VoiceOver timeline access. Requiring iOS 7, Twitterrific is available for iPhone and iPad, and is priced at 50 percent off ($3) for a limited time.

Kootol sends notice to Apple on messaging patent

Unknown software house Kootol on Friday sent notice to many companies claiming that they allegedly violate a messaging patent. It targets a wide swath of the industry that includes Apple, Amazon, Facebook, Foursquare, Microsoft, Nokia, RIM, Twitter, and others all allegedly violate a patent for "Method and System for Communication, Advertising, Searching, Sharing and Dynamically Providing a Journal Feed." Unusually, Kootol doesn't actually have the patent and is instead acting on a Notice of Allowance that lets it act on the patent but still requires that it pay for the patent later.

The update also no longer allows the reply shortcut on a direct message, and a new power user preference optionally displays @screenname rather than a full name. Twitterific 3.1 is available for free, and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later as well as a Twitter account.
