Facebook and Twitter are the two de-facto social networks, and their respective iOS apps have changed considerably over the years. Both apps have been updated today with new features that are in essence borrowed from the other. For Facebook, the update introduces the ability to share posts with one tap, a lot like a ReTweet in Twitter. You can now re-post (clever name) stories in Twitter, and the update also includes tags, smileys, and new sort options.
For Twitter, their update makes everything more visual to take tweets beyond 140 characters. The Discover tab has been enhanced so there are stories based on what Twitter thinks you’re interested in, and the photos, videos, and article previews are available in-line. That means you don’t need to click on links to open the extra files in Twitter, at least on the Discover page. The search has also been enhanced with photos at the top of the search results for the visual flair of Instagram and Facebook.
