Two major apps on the iOS platform announced changes/app availability today, and in Twitter’s case, both Windows Phone 7 and Android. The new iOS app update brings the following:
Whenever an account that you follow mentions you, you’ll immediately receive a notification. You’ll know who is talking to or about you on Twitter, and you’ll be able to continue the conversation in real-time. Notifications for @mentions will initially be available on SMS and on the latest version of Twitter for iPhone, which you can download today from the App Store.
Some of these snazzy features (including ones not mentioned here due to numerous things, including @JakeOSmith being a semi-troll) are also being promised for smartphone users of other platforms, as Twitter explains they are “working hard to introduce this feature to Twitter for Android and Twitter for Windows Phone.” That’s welcoming news, isn’t it? The complete list of changes is below.
