Before the launch of Apple Watch, Twitterrific for iPhone gained support for a Watch app that featured a variety of capabilities. Now, the company has updated its iPhone app and with it come new features for both the Watch and phone. Version 5.12 of Twitterrific adds support for Twitter’s new quoted tweets feature, which embeds the actual tweet instead of simply quoting it as text. To do a quote retweet with Twitterrific, simply tap and hold on the RT button.

Other new features include a new settings option to display a tab bar at the bottom of the screen, while in-app notification banners have also been redesigned and are more easily seen.

Regarding Apple Watch, today’s update to Twitterrific adds support for emoji and quick replies. This option is enabled from the Apple Watch app on your iPhone.

In addition to new features, there are a handful of improvements and bug fixes to both the iPhone and Watch apps in Twitterrific 5.122. The update is available on the App Store now and the full changelog can be seen below:
