Inside BlackBerry, The Official BlackBerry Blog, announced the release of the updated version of Twitter for BlackBerry. Currently it is available in the BlackBerry App World in the test center as well. I had to download it and show some pictures as well as share some in depth explanation of the features and share some short cuts. Check it out…
I have to admit, I’m already loving the speed of the Twitter for BlackBerry app, I haven’t experienced the slight freezing, and the new features are really nice!
The quote tweet option is nice as you can actually place “quotes” in too now. The username auto-complete has been asked for by many tweeters. I also like the fact you can set it to warn you about personal information about to be posted. YFrog and TweetPhoto are also supported now.
I do like the ability to use your BlackBerry smartphone’s system fonts or the fonts you can choose from within Twitter for BlackBerry. It makes it more customizable. You also now have the ability to see a geotagged tweet with BlackBerry Maps. I did notice that when you tweeting, if you use more than the characters allowed for a tweet, you can’t click on the send button.
But for the new features, it’s worth checking out. If you tried it and didn’t like it before, you really should give it another shot. If you have Twitter for BlackBerry, you should be able to check for updates through the app itself. I love Twitter and I love my BlackBerry, and I love what BlackBerry does. This app has come a long ways from the first beta they launched and I have to say it’s just really a have to have app if you Twitter. Integration, sharing fave tweets with friends and family outside of Twitter, it’s just really nice. Great job BlackBerry!
