Major New Features in iOS Updated Twitter App

So, Twitter got updated for the iOS devices and many new features have been introduced this time, though the major upgrades are only 2 of them. But nothing has changed in the UI of twitter only it is only easier to access the links on the tweets while using your application and the best part is that you can now retweet or reply to the tweet while watching that link on your phone. Let us talk about those 2 major updates.

Now while viewing the timeline on your twitter application you can directly tap the link of any webpage and then the inbuilt browser will open with the URL of that link mentioned at its top and the tweet mention as the popup at the bottom of the page.

image

In that option you will have the options to retweet, reply, to mark it as favorite and other common options available when you open a tweet on your phone. So, now you will not have to first tap the tweet and then visit the webpage on the other screen. You will not have to come out of the browser to talk about the tweet with your friends.

image

If you want to remove that tweet popup then just slide it downwards and it will go away from the webpage, at any point of time when you wish to bring that back then slide up the highlighted area in the screenshot.

image

The auto-complete suggestions for the search query has been improved thus adding more suggestions while writing the search text. You will see that if you had any popular tweet in your timeline then it will also appear in the search results and once you tap any suggestion, then you will be directed to the specific search results corresponding to that suggested search keyword.

Basically these 2 are major upgrades this time in the update of this application, apart from the other are mentioned below.

  • Whenever you will block a user now then all the notifications and entries made in the connect section will go away (something similar to the Facebook notification feature).
  • Traditional Chinese is now supported in this application.
  • Video support has been removed for Mobypicture, Vodpod and Posterous.
  • Refreshing discover section will show a better animation (I didn’t see this coming)
  • Logout support only for iOS6 users.

Conclusion

The access to the links from the timeline of the twitter is a good feature making it really easy for the users to read the tweets in detail and that can be the best reason for you to update this application. You will not see much of the difference working on this app, if you have not been using twitter extensively.

Vine: Attach 6 Second Video with your Tweets [Detail Feature Review]

Twitter has always been about sharing something short and crisp and that’s is the reason it has always put a limit to the characters in your tweets, they could have also increased this limit as Facebook as done with their Facebook status and as Orkut did with its scraps but as per the concept tweet has to be short. Keeping this in mind Twitter has unveiled another application named Vine and this application is for you to share videos on tweets. Again this video sharing will be limited by 6 seconds but this will be done very smartly on this application.

Recording the videos is a very simple task, just tap the button as mentioned below. If you are using this application for the first time then a tutorial will automatically start which can be skipped from options mentioned at the bottom of the same screen.

image

Once the camera screen starts, locate the scene which needs to be captured, keeping in mind that the full video recording will be of 6 seconds. Now keep the most important thing in mind, you will not have to tap a button to start the continuous recording rather the duration for which you touch the screen will be the duration for which it will record that scene.
image

The moment you life your finger the recording will stop, so basically in order to create short video of 6 seconds but with the intention to cover everything you can capture different scenes by taping again and again on your screen.
image

So this way you can record a GIF type animation in your tweet and for sharing that you can choose Twitter, Vine or Facebook.
image

Once the home page of this application you will see the editors pick videos, which are a good example to learn the way to record a video.

Major Issue being faced.

Like any other new application, it is also a big problem these days. Few days back you must have heard the news that Apple has removed many image editing and sharing applications because they were making users vulnerable to the porn images. Now, this same problem has started in this application also as such short videos of full length porn videos are being tweeted on the Twitter thus making the users vulnerable to these porn video. If this trend continued and could not be controlled then Apple will have to take this application down.

Some of the steps have been taken against this issue but still Twitter has not made any comment about it. They have removed all the porn videos from their editor-pick section but still this is just a temporary treatment. We will update you more about this.

Conclusion

Pornography is a big issue to deal with but if you have friend who do not share such videos at all and now when editor pick section has been corrected with such issues then I believe that it is fine to use this application and it works good even on slower data connections.

Upload HD Video From iPhone Without Compression with Youtube Capture

Google has released a new application which makes it very easy for you to upload the videos directly from your iPhone. You can share those videos instantly not only on YouTube but also on Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus. After taking the video you can add any other background audio from YouTube soundtracks and then share the video with all of your friends. Let us discuss it in detail.

First things first, if you want to record any video using this application then it can only be done in the landscape mode because the record button will not be activated unless you turn that phone in the landscape mode.

image

The moment you stop the recording you will be directed to another screen where you can share the video.

A copy of that video will be saved in your camera roll also. The icon on the extreme left will help you to make that video better by adding certain effects to it, moreover if you want it to be shared on Facebook and other Social Network, just tap on their respective icon. While sharing that video you will have to configure this application in your Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus account by giving this application the required rights.

You can also trim the length of the video before uploading it on internet. On the main screen (the first screenshot) when you will tap the videos section, you will see all videos already available in your camera roll. They will be enlisted and will be ready to be uploaded on YouTube, you can hide them by swiping your finger across them.

clip_image004

In the beginning, I have mentioned that the recording will be initiated once you put your iPhone in the landscape mode, you can go to settings and change this setting which will let you record in the portrait mode. You can also vary the recording quality (between 480p and 720p) or misconfigure the social network with the application.

Conclusion

Application is good for the freaks who love upload the videos again and again on a daily basis as it is very handy for them; moreover it is a single point from where the video can go to all of your social networks.
