I love the BlackBerry Beta Zone and I’m really happy that RIM has been updating most of their apps and fine tuning them. I’d love to see their own Twitter app for the BlackBerry PlayBook sometime too. Here’s what’s new with the latest version…
The latest features are:
- Color Refresh – featuring a lighter color scheme
- Compose a Tweet – the Tweet composer is “hidden” from the Home timeline but accessible from the new Compose Tweet bar located below the navigation bar
- Trending Topics with local trends support – a Trending Topics icon has been added to the nav bar and now includes local trends support
- My Profile – Now users can access their profile quickly and easily from the nav bar (or the Menu)
- Performance Enhancements to improve the overall usability of the app
Keep in mind this newest updated version isn’t available in the BlackBerry App World, only in the BlackBerry Beta Zone. If you haven’t signed up with the BlackBerry Beta Zone, now would be a great time. If you have, just know that Twitter has updated and now is a good time to log in and update your Twitter for BlackBerry. I love the Beta Zone because you can be part of the application’s development and give your feedback.
