Twitter updates mobile apps for Google Android and Apple iOS

Twitter has released updated apps for both Google Android and Apple iOS platforms.

This is a major update focused on improving the app in three areas: Discover, Search and Notifications.

Activity has been moved to Discover section in both the apps. Twitter said:

Activity appears below the redesigned stories in Discover. Now you can tap any story once to see Tweets about a particular trend or news article. You can then read the entire story or join the conversation by replying, retweeting or favoriting related Tweets.

Twitter has also improved the search component by making it smarter:

You can see suggestions for different spellings and related terms for your queries. Finding the people you’re looking for is faster, too. In the Connect tab, you can start typing the first or last name or username of the person you’re looking for and the name will autocomplete for people that you follow.

Notifications also get an update. Users can now get alerts for new activities on their accounts.
