UPDATE: The latest version of UberTwitter comes with advertising, much like other free apps such as Viigo. There are hints that a paid, ad-free version will be coming.

UberTwitter is by far one of the best free Twitter clients available for BlackBerry. Today, they’ve released their Beta 4 for download and it has some great new features and updates.

Some of the cooler features include support for TwitVid and Bit.ly. Other updates to UberTwitter include:

  • Multiple Accounts – You can now configure multiple accounts, each with their own set of on-device preferences.
  • You can now BLOCK people!
  • Video Integration – We have partnered with TwitVid.com to offer you an outstanding video integration.
  • Goto user – You can now enter twitter users name and go directly to their timeline
  • URL Shortening – we’ve integrated with bit.ly so you can easily send those long URLs now and not bump up against the 140 limit
  • MUCH faster photo uploads, significantly improving the user experience.
  • Use of the internal GPS is now solidly supported with proper fallback to cell tower based location when GPS isn’t available.
  • Icon Caching If you have and SD card, we will cache avatar icons on the card, increasing the speed of timeline displays and reducing network traffic.
  • You can now select pictures and videos that have already been take and are on your device. The interface shows the most recent at the top and offers a preview so you can verify it is the picture/video you expected!
  • When composing a tweet you can now insert symbols from a large selection of commonly available characters such as smiley’s, hearts, etc.
  • Integrated advertisements – Please note, the ads are there to support the freely distributable version of ÜberTwitter. Users that purchase ÜberTwitter will not have advertisement in their version.
  • We’ve streamlined the friends and followers lists
  • You can now see both the number of friends, followers, and tweets sent when viewing the details of a tweet.
  • Replying to a DM from the timeline will now correctly send a DM and not a regular tweet
  • Fixed the bug in reply all where it would truncate some twitter user names
  • Added reply all to the menu when viewing a tweet

You can download the Beta 4 release of UberTwitter free, by visiting http://www.ubertwitter.com/bb/download.php from your BlackBerry Browser.

    I’ve downloaded UberTwitter on my Bold and have to say I’m very impressed with it, can’t seem to get it to download on my Storm though. Having been an avid TwitterBerry user for sometime, I’m impressed with its current functionality and I suppose I wouldn’t mind the ad’s as like with most desensitised humans, I don’t notice them anyway.
