If you own an iOS device and you currently use TweetDeck, you’ll be pleased to know that the popular social networking app has just received a major overhaul. However, TweetDeck version 2.0 has been released as a brand new app, rather than just an update to the existing one.

For this reason, TweetDeck is encouraging users to uninstall the current app on their iOS device, and download the new and improved TweetDeck version 2.0. As Chloe Albanesius from pcmag.com reports, the new app not only comes with a brand new design, but it also supports iOS 4.0.

Although the usual columns have remained, TweetDeck has now an option that enables users to customize the feeds that appear within the columns. The new and improved app also features built-in support for deck.ly for long posts, although this feature can be turned off via the settings menu.

A brand new compose window has also been added, enabling users to add photos and geo-tagging, as well as auto-complete names and shorten URLs. Users also have the ability to explore Twitter feeds by swiping, while a Tweet detail view enables you to read an entire conversation.
