Twitter Prepares for iOS 7 Launch with Redesigned Mobile App

Sep 18 2013, 6:14am CDT | by

The changes made to Twitter’s mobile app in response to the release of iOS 7 are reportedly massive. Users should prepare to experience an app experience from Twitter that is much different and richer than they have become used to.

The standard menu bar that is currently featured at the bottom of the screen has been completely done away with. Much more focus is to be placed on streams, which is how the content is to be organized, including everything that is now found contained in the Connect, Discover, Me, and Home sections of the current app. In fact, the Discovery part of the app, much like the standard menu bar, has been completely eliminated.

This reorganization of the app serves to enhance user experience, as the streams are easily navigating with just a swipe. This includes exploring the brand new stream that is completely dedicated to photos shared on Twitter. One feature that users will find familiar is the reverse-chronological stream that is a feature of the current app and will be found in the newest release.

The changes made provide app users with a more visual experience. There is a big emphasis on multimedia elements. Instead of having to click a tweet to view videos or photos posted, all of this will simply appear in the stream. The overall theme is much different from the text-laden Twitter app users are used to. There are even reports that Twitter is experimenting with a special stream for TV-related conversations and tweets, making easier for newbie Twitter users to find content of interest.

This new app from Twitter is not available to coincide with the release date of the iOS 7. Instead, there will be an update for the existing app and it is scheduled to be released the Wednesday after the iOS 7 launch date.
