UberSocial Version 1.250

The latest version of my favorite Twitter client has just been released. I’ve already updated my UberSocial app and I love the fact that My Inner Circle is now loading faster than before. Good job!

Version 1.250 is now available for download for all of us Blackberry users. This version includes the following changes:

  • Direct support for the latest OS 7 BlackBerry devices
  • For BlackBerry OS 6.0 and 7.0 devices we now support the home screen message notification bar so DMs, @replies/mentions and inner circle tweets will show up there for quick access from the device home screen. When you see the mini UberSocial icon, click the bar and the tweets/DMs that caused the notification will be displayed along with a snippet of the tweet. Clicking the tweet snippet will take you directly to it.
  • Fixed bug where tweets would not open on some touch screen devices when you touched them
  • Fixed bug where trending topics descriptions would sometimes overlap in the list.
  • Fixed issue caused by twitter wrapping all URLs with shortened links, this affected twitlonger,, and links
  • List timelines now include retweets
  • Fixed bug where mini-icon would sometimes have a zero next to it
  • Improved load times for the inner circle timeline
  • now respects the picture size that you choose.
  • Profile pictures are now rotated correctly
  • Added ‘Login via Browser’ as an option when adding more then one account
  • Added multiple retries to the authorization process as the twitter servers appear to timeout or return nothing quite often
  • Added a ‘Theme’ menu itme so you can easily change themes from the home timeline without going into options
  • Changed the menu text of ‘My Timeline’ to ‘My Tweets’ to more accurately reflect the functionality
  • Support for new device screen sizes for installable themes
  • Fixed a theme bug where backgrounds were not being used on all screens, causing tiling of the portrait background

Remember BBM Flirt?

Just how important is your BBM PIN? Is it something that you just give away to the world?

There was a time when my BBM Barcode was plastered on a Facebook group, unauthorized. I was not even a member of that group, and I don’t exchange pins to anyone I don’t know. I have received so many BBM invites and ignored them all. How my barcode got there? I have no idea. For me, BBM PINS should be treated as a precious information. I would rather BBM known friends than strangers and stalkers.


Otter Box for Blackberry

My Blackberry phone is protected by Otter Box. Some people may find it expensive, but it’s really worth every penny. My phone has fallen down twice. The first time was face up, and the next was face down. The first fall was about 4ft, and the next was about 3ft. Not a scratch or dent. Otter Box did not fail me on those two occasions. I am so glad that I spent Php1000 to protect my little investment that is my phone.
