iPhone and iPod Touch devices for a visually improved interface. We also
take advantage of Multi-Tasking with Fast App Switching.
Pull-down to refresh and infinite scrolling in timelines
A simple pull-down of the timeline, will load new content. We’ve also
added infinite scrolling to load additional updates seamlessly when you
arrive at the bottom of a timeline.
Creating and adding your friends in your Twitter Lists
We now provide users with the ability to manage and create Twitter Lists.
Just visit your profile, choose Lists and hit the plus sign to create a
new list. You then can add your friends to your Twitter lists directly
from the app by visiting the user’s profile, and press the “Add to List”
button to add your Twitter friend to the designated list.
Replies and Direct Messages in Conversation Threads
If you spend a lot of time with Replies and Direct Messages, we’ve
organized it to provide you the ability to view your replies and private
direct message in a threaded conversation view.
Facebook updates: View private messages, Pages, Friends List and Profile
We’ve also made some updates to manage your Facebook social stream. The
Newsfeed has been updated for easier viewing, and you’ll be able to now
read your private messages inbox. You can now also take advantage of being
able to view the list of your friends, as well as see their profile.
Instapaper and Read Later
We’ve also added support for Instapaper and Read it Later to Seesmic for
iPhone. You can now save articles to “Read it Later” and Instapaper.
Simply go to Settings > External Services, add your credentials for the
services you want to use.
