Final Touches: Twitterrific

Final Touches celebrates the tiny details that make an app a delight to use. Not the marquee features, but the fun, thoughtful bits that make you smile. The final touches.


Twitterrific 5.0 for the iPhone added a slew of new features to the veteran Twitter client. My favorite little touch is the Ollie animation that accompanies the pull-to-refresh gesture. As you begin the gesture, a tiny egg appears. Continue the motion and the egg cracks open and Ollie emerges. He flaps his wings as the feed refreshes and finally disappears with a pop.

It’s just plain fun and I enjoy watching it every time. Good job, Iconfactory.
