May 9, 2012 | By | Add a Comment

Blaq by Kisai Labs updated a few days back so I’m a little late here, but better late than never. Blaq is definitely my favorite and preferred Twitter client for the BlackBerry PlayBook. The features and UI are just perfect and works perfect. Check out what was updated….

Jerome Carty,the hard working developer from Kisai Labs, has been hard at work refining the updates to this app, an app that once you use it, you will find yourself using it exclusively on your PlayBook. I am really hoping that Blaq for BlackBerry is updated for the BlackBerry 7 devices as we wait for the BlackBerry 10. Blaq is very sleek, very quick, and very sexy. It’s the perfect app for the serious Twitter user. If you use Twitter and have a BlackBerry PlayBook, you will love what Blaq can do for you.

Here’s the features of the app:

  • Beautiful, intuitive user interface
