Twitterrific adds facial recognition

The Iconfactory’s iOS Twitter app, Twitterrific, keeps getting better. The company recently added support for Twitter’s official tweet-quoting format, making it a pleasure to read. And the latest update uses Apple’s facial recognition API to improve the display of images in your timeline:

As Twitterrific displays media thumbnails in the timeline (pictures, videos, etc), the app tries to detect faces and frame the thumbnail so faces are always showing. In short, if Twitterrific sees a face in a tweet, it tries to make sure you see it too!

Twitterrific’s been my favorite iOS Twitter client for a while now, and I’m constantly impressed by the new features the team (led by developer Sean Heber) keeps adding.
