Twitterrific App Now Uses Facial Recognition to Frame Subjects in Rich Media Previews

Posted by · 5463 views · Translate
Twitterrific has been updated with a new feature that uses facial recognition to frame subjects in rich media previews, a swipe back gesture, and quoted tweet notifications.

Now as Twitterrific displays media thumbnails in the timeline (pictures, videos, etc), the app tries to detect faces and frame the thumbnail so faces are always showing. In short, if Twitterrific sees a face in a tweet, it tries to make sure you see it too!

"The effect when scanning through your list of tweets in the timeline can be dramatic. Previously Twitterrific always framed thumbnails on the center of images, but many times people’s faces aren’t in the middle, especially on portrait shots."

Take a look at a few examples below!
