Twitterrific updated for iOS 4, now universal

The Icon Factory has released a major update to its popular Twitter client. Twitterrific 3.0 merges the previous separate iPhone and iPad versions into a single universal app for both platforms and adds support for iOS 4 fast app switching and interface optimizations for the iPhone 4 Retina display. Other new features and improvements include VoiceOver accessibility for the visually impaired, a light appearance theme, OAuth authentication and tweet integration for media upload services, new “Relationship” information on the user profile screen and a simplified and friendlier user interface for iPhone users. The update also fixes problems with shortening very long URLs and preserving draft tweets when network problems occur. Twitterrific 3.0 is available from the App Store as a free ad-supported version—a Premium upgrade is available within the app for $5 to remove the advertising and add support for multiple Twitter accounts. Twitterrific 3.0 Premium is a free upgrade for Premium users of the iPad version; users of Twitterrific 2.0 for the iPhone will need to purchase the Premium upgrade separately or use the free, ad-supported version with single account support.

Meh. The folks behind Echofon updated their Pro app to go Universal before Twitterrific went Universal. And did a better job of it, too.

Not to mention that the folks at Iconfactory kinda screwed over everyone who bought the original iPhone Premium app. Nearly a year without any major feature updates, support for new retweet format, etc.

This is very underwhelming.

Before the upgrade, the free version supported multiple accounts. Not anymore.

The current Universal binary of Twitterrific never supported multiple accounts without an upgrade to Premium.

The previous free version on iPhone did, but it was not upgraded to Universal, nor was the previous iPhone version of Premium. Just clarifying.
