Blackberry Releases Twitter App In The Wild (Still In Beta)

Filed as News on April 9, 2010 6:27 pm

After all but declaring that most Blackberry apps for twitter were horrible, it looks like the BB team is finally unleashing their official twitter app to the world via their beta zone store.

The Blackberry app pretty much boasts features that are considered standard for iPhone Twitter apps (like direct messaging, uploading images, list support, blocking spammers, etc.), although there does not appear to be any support for video uploading (so BB fans will still have to use TwitVid).

Blackberry intends upon launching this app for free (and effectively kill off a few developers as well), and should help them compete against the iPhone whose apps are famous in the twitterverse (especially Echofon, Tweetie and Twittelator).

    Interesting. Actually UberTwitter is actually quite a good app now and use it all the time. The new version is much improved. But I will try out the official app.

    This is such good news! I currently use UberTwitter, which is very good, but limiting for some things. So, I was glad having had heard something about Twitter making this a while back. I will certainly try this new app!
