Unfortunately push notifications are still not included in this latest update. Here’s the story from Iconofactory regarding the situation.
We know that users are patiently awaiting the addition of native push notifications for Twitterrific. With Twitter’s help we have begun the preliminary work on this most anticipated feature. It’s still very early and we don’t have a planned release date.
This isn’t the news I was hoping for with this update, but despite the lack of push notifications, in this new update media embedded in tweets is now displayed inline, except for Instagram photos which are now displayed fullscreen using the new in-app web browser, which is a cool addition. Furthermore, the photo viewer no longer renders a frame around the images, which again is a nice touch.
There are a ton of added features, so here’s the full list of changes for you to enjoy.
