Twitter for iOS 3.5.0: Search Nearby Tweets & Upload Photos to Twitter

Twitter takes front and center stage in Apple’s iOS 5 for iPhone and iPad. Apple built-in the ability to tweet directly from iOS’s web browser, photo viewer, maps and more. But, this did not stop Twitter from enhancing its standalone app.

On the small enhancements side, the Twitter app has a better sign-up experience and bug fixes. The big changes to Twitter version 3.5.0 are:

– Upload photos to Twitter (pic.twitter.com)
– Updated Direct Messages design on iPad
– Tap a location on iPad to show Tweets nearby

The tweets search requires a couple of taps to initiate. Here’s how you do it:

– Tap “Search” in the left sidebar
– Tap inside of the search text box
– Tap “Nearby”
– Type in a search string in the text box
– Tap the “Search” button on the lower right of the display
