Twitterrific Updated To 1.1, New Features Added, Bugs Squashed

Iconfactory released Twitterrific for iPhone v1.1 today, bringing with it a whole host of new features and bug fixes. Many of the added features address shortcomings and quirks found in the first version. Of note, the camera icon now asks whether you want to take a photo or select from your cameral roll and photos taken are saved to your iPhone before they’re uploaded. Scrolling has been significantly sped up and many memory leaks have been plugged. Additionally, your scroll position doesn’t change when exiting or refreshing the application. Read on for a full list of changes!
