Twitterrific has updated its app with a new 'Center Stage' feature that lets you browse tweets that contain only media.

Tapping the new Center Stage button at the top of any timeline will open a full screen view where you can swipe through all of the tweets that include photos, movies, or animated GIFs. When you’re in Center Stage, you can tap on the tweet to exit or swipe left/right to navigate through your timeline. You can also Like or Retweet directly from Center Stage. A single tap will get the on-screen controls out of your way and swiping down will close the tweet drawer so there’s nothing between you and the media you’re viewing.

Here's a look at the full release notes...

What's New In This Version:
Center Stage: A whole new way to see your tweets!

Tap the new Center Stage button at the top of any timeline to open a full screen view where you can swipe through all of the tweets that include photos, movies, or animated GIFs.

When you’re in Center Stage, you can tap on the tweet to exit or swipe left/right to navigate through your timeline. You can even Like or Retweet directly from Center Stage! A single tap will get the on-screen controls out of your way and swiping down will close the tweet drawer so there’s nothing between you and the media you’re viewing.

The traditional media experience has also been improved - after tapping on a thumbnail to view it, there is a new button at the bottom of the screen which allows you to enter Center Stage right from there. If you swipe to other tweets, a rewind button appears that’ll take you back to where you started. Handy!

Center Stage isn’t just for your timeline - from a profile screen, you can tap on any of the thumbnails and enter Center Stage where you can see the tweet that the image was attached to as well as swipe through their other recent media tweets without even having to open a timeline.

Center Stage is fully VoiceOver compatible and includes support for physical keyboards.
