Twitter Updates iPhone App, Calms User Revolt? (mashable's poll)

by Avinash Saxena

Twitter ran into a user revolt when it released version 3.3 of its iPhoneapp last week, and Wednesday it released an update that could convince its angry users to put their figurative torches down and go back to their homes.

The problem was, Twitter introduced a “Quick Bar” that hovered at the top of the user’s tweets, generally making a nuisance of itself in spite of the fact that it was offering real information about trending topics.

Users didn’t care for this at all. Wondering how widespread the disdain was for this little tweak, we took a poll last weekend and got an overwhelmingly negative reaction to version 3.3 of Twitter’s iPhone app. As you can see, more than 81% of our readers disliked the Quick Bar:





Now, as Twitter promised late last week, version 3.3.1 is here, and it includes “updated Quick Bar default behavior to not overlap tweets in timeline.”
