My experience with Twitter App

I have only used it for some time to get this post out with screenshot, overall it worked well for me. There was a bit lag when it was trying to refresh at set interval, other than that I liked the overall clean, tabbed user interface with it’s pushed direct messages, integration with Messages, Tweet or send DM directly from the Messages and many more. Once installed I had to do a battery pull and it’s worked well after that.

Currently the app doesn’t have any location based features and doesn’t allow multiple Twitter accounts at a time. Well not to forget, it’s still in beta. The official release is said to be available via BlackBerry App World later in this year.

The app is available in English, French, Italian, German, Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese. It’s supported on BlackBerry OS v4.5 or higher with 64MB or more of on-board memory. The current beta version is sitting at v1.0.0.28.

    You know, Twitter for BlackBerry application has already been leaked, that’s how myself and a bunch of my friends were able to acquire it. But because it’s only a beta, I am sure they will come out with another version soon.
