Twitter announced yesterday that it has added support for photo galleries and apps to the functions of your card. Galleries are now displayed in the current stream with various photo previews and application developers can integrate their applications more details.
Today, Twitter updated its iOS applications to support the functions of the new card, declaring that users can discover, install and launch applications tweets. And also reinforced the application performance “with faster launch and common bug fixes.
Hereâs the full 5.5 change log:
-Twitter for iPhone now helps you discover, install and launch your favorite apps from Tweets. This update also includes the following improvements:
-Faster launch times and general performance upgrades
-âRetweeted byâ in Tweet detail is now tappable
-Fix for reply-to-self in conversations

And hereâs a description of the new app Card deep-linking feature from Twitterâs Jason Costa:
âFirst, weâre introducing mobile app deep-linking in Cards ââ a new feature that closes the loop between content creation, content discovery and app downloads. With mobile app deep-linking, users will be able to tap a link to either view content directly in your app, or download your app, depending on whether or not they have your app installed.â
Only a few applications currently support the new application cards like Path, Etsy, SoundCloud and Vine course. But evaluating by the reactions of developers, will not be long before we see a quantity of other people to join the arena. It seems that I really like.
The news experience deeper content comes just weeks after a report from CNET claims that the social network was looking at integrating a music discovery service in your application. Perhaps today’s update was an signal of things to come.
Anyhow, if you want to check this new Twitter app, then you can find it and download in the App Store for free.
