The much anticipated 1.5 release of the Summify iPhone app hit the App Store today.
Twitter iOS 5 Integration
Simplicity at it’s finest: add your Twitter account in your iPhone’s settings for easy sign-ups and logins, in one click!
You can find the new heart-shaped Like button in the top-right corner when reading a story. Clicking the button helps teach Summify what you enjoy reading, and if one of the story’s sources shared the link from Facebook, It will automatically “Like” the story on Facebook as well. Go on, spread some love.

1. Tap your profile picture to access the Settings screen and configure your account
2. Enter your account details to connect
3. Your username will appear beside the Read it Later icon once you are connected
4. Save any article to Read it Later from the share screen (accessed by clicking the share button when reading an individual story)

With over 40 bug fixes in this release, we won’t bore you with the extermination details. Most notably, we resolved the issue of the missing Japanese keyboard in iOS 5. To put it simply, stuff just works better.
