iPhone: QuickBar Has Been Eliminated

A few weeks ago, Twitter app for iPhone had been updated with several new features. Perhaps the most prominent feature is QuickBar, but most users don’t like it.

QuickBar is a feature that serves hashtag on Twitter, but instead it just makes you get stuck on the main timeline and show you the trends that you don’t want to see. Fortunately, Twitter has announced that they finally get rid of these QuickBar that considered to annoy most users.

In an official blog post, Twitter explains:

“Rather than continue to make changes to the QuickBar as it exists, we removed the bar from the update appearing in the App Store today. We believe there are still significant benefits to increasing awareness of what’s happening outside the home timeline. Evidence of the incredibly high usage metrics for the QuickBar support this. For now, we’re going back to the drawing board to explore the best possible experience for in-app notification and discovery.”

iPhone: Facebook Updates

Facebook for iPhone just got its official update. This update was released in App Store a few hours ago and took several new functions as well as several fixes.

This Facebook 3.4 version for iPhone also introduces a new folder; map view to be used on Facebook Places. This update also allows you to checkin Events that you attend. Compared to the earlier versions, Facebook v3.4 is faster and more responsive to commands. You also can see News Feeds and Notifications UI that also get a correction. Switching between sections of the main dashboard also feels lighter.

But from of all the new features, the ‘unfriend’ feature is perhaps the most unique. If this feature is usually accessible via a web browser only, then through Facbook version 3.4 you can simply ‘unfriend’ directly from iPhone with no need to open desktop.
