The Iconfactory released a significant update to Twitterrific 5 today bringing support for a highly requested feature: streaming.

Just like Twitter for Mac and Tweetbot for Mac and iOS, Twitterrific will now present new tweets to you as they’re loaded alleviating the need to pull-to-refresh when you’re caught up on your timeline. You will need to enable it in the settings for it to work, and it requires WiFi of course.

The update also features a number of other improvements including list management.

Twitterrific 5 is easily my favorite Twitter app for iPad as it has been aesthetically at home on iOS 7 long before Apple adopted the simpler design language.

It features a number of customization options for it’s appearance and a really nice Today view that shows new followers, favorites, and retweets similar to the official Twitter app.

It’s been getting faster and faster in recent updates, and streaming support makes it that much better. If you haven’t tried it before or if it’s been a while, give it a spin.

Twitterrific is available for $2.99 on sale for 99¢ on the App Store, and existing customers will see today’s update available for free.
