Version 2.8.1 just went live on the Store today meaning you can now update your app if you have it already installed. Looking for the changes? We have those too, and it turns out to be quite the laundry list of fixes and improvements. Let's take a look.

Needless to say, that is a lot of stuff fixed and improved. Fenice for Twitter is quickly rising to the top of our favorite Twitter apps due to some unique features like the built in meme catalog or text face that make it a lot of fun. Combined with the frequent updates and growing list of native features and it is an app hard to ignore.

Fenice runs for $1.99 as like all third-party Twitter apps they have to contend with Twitter's developer token restriction. Is it worth the $2? We think so especially if you are looking for something with a little more oomph than the official Twitter app.
