On Thursday April 25th, 2013, Twitter showed off a long-awaited updated Mac version of its app, featuring a number of key fixes, including easier photo sharing as well as support for Retina displays and more languages. On the imaging side of things, you can now simply click the camera icon in the lower-left corner of the tweet composing module, or just do it as before by the old fashioned way: to drag and drop photos from the desktop. The latest version also finally adds support for Macs with Retina Displays, making it “even more vibrant and detailed on the highest resolution Mac notebooks” such as the Retina Macbook Pro. Also new in this version is 14 new languages, including Dutch, French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Malay, Portuguese, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Spanish, Traditional Chinese and Turkish.
“Along with these updates, Twitter for Mac offers keyboard shortcuts, support for multiple accounts and timelines, and other features that you’ve come to love,” Said Twitter for Mac Tech Lead Ben Sandofsky in a blog post Thursday.
The update is now available for downloading in the Mac App Store. It seems like that Twitter has some other goodies on hand, since Sandofsky told Twitter fans to “keep an eye out for more improvements to come.”
Twitter has been a busy bee recently. Twitter last week launched a new music discovery service for the Web and iOS devices named Twitter #music. The new service “uses Twitter activity, including Tweets and engagement, to detect and surface the most popular tracks and emerging artists” Besides, Twitter also said that they were considering new ways to improve the process of using Twitter on Android, which we’ve talked about a week ago.
