Twitter updated- poor customer reviews

By: Marawan Alwaraki, December 16, 2011
Mobile Twitter has recently been updated to a new UI. The new UI features a very HD good looking interface. However, every hero has his weakness. Twitter has been receiving very shocking customer reviews mainly from Apple users. I have just recently visited iTunes and searched for Twitter and these are the disappointing reviews I was greeted with:


Customer Reviews

Wow.

Ruined the app. Removed the slide to reveal options on tweets. Too simplistic.
Stay far, far away

Horrible use of the limited amount of screen real estate on the iPhone. Don't upgrade. There's no landscape mode, switching accounts is way too complicated, far too much scrolling is needed to see tweets. There are many reasons why I simply can't recommend this.
Multiple Accounts?

Using multiple accounts before the 4.0 update was bad enough, but now it's almost impossible and requires way too many touches. Please consider those of us who have multiple accounts!

It seems like the new Twitter is not accepted by the community. Most users are recommending not to upgrade to the latest version. If you already upgraded and regret doing so, read this post on how to downgrade iPhone apps. On the other hand, if you were looking forward for this upgrade then read what are the new features in the upgrade below:

"What's New in Version 4.0

Please note that the following changes are available only on iPhone:

The latest version of Twitter offers a faster, simpler way to stay close to everything you care about on your iPhone.

Home is where you start from: a personal collection of Tweets from the sources you care about. The Tweet details show rich information such as replies, retweets and embedded images.

Connect is the place to see who followed or mentioned you, retweeted or favorited one of your Tweets. It’s where you keep the conversation flowing.

Discover is where you can tap into the stories and trends people are talking about in your world. You can also find friends, browse interests, and explore hashtags here.

Me puts you and your interests front and center. From here you can exchange Direct Messages with your followers."

In my opinion, waiting for a new upgrade is the best solution. This is because the new look is great but it lacks several features which should be fixed soon.
