ubertwitter_beta_6

UberTwitter is on of the best free Twitter clients for BlackBerry and they have just updated their Beta to 6 with some major features. You won’t find this update in the app so be sure to head to the site and grab it OTA.

Here are some of the latest feaures:

  • Lists – You can create, delete, subscribe, add members, view members, all the functionality you would expect of an Über mobile client.
  • Find People – You can search for people, just like the ‘Find People’ link on Twitter’s home page.
  • New Icon
  • Über Bar – This is a tab bar at the top of the screen, the neat thing is that you can add your own tabs. A list can be a tab, users timelines, and soon saved searches.

  • Retweets – Support for the old method and new method, you decide.
  • Update Twitter Profile – You can update your Twitter profile directly from your phone.
  • Profile Picture – Upload a picture for your Twitter avatar right from your phone.
  • Report Spam – One menu selection to report a tweet as a spam.
  • Twitter Geo-Tagging – Support for Twitter’s new geo-tagging capability. You can decide whether to use myloc.me URLs, Twitter Geo-Tagging, or both.
  • Friend Picker – Type ‘@’ and a list of your friends automatically pops up allowing selection.
  • Larger Avatars – Click the profile picture, and view a larger version. You can even email that larger version.
  • TwitLonger – TwitLonger is fully integrated into both sending long tweets, and automatically retrieving long tweets.
  • What The Trend? – UberTwitter now integrates with WhatTheTrend.com to allow you to see the explanations for trending topics, and also for you to provide your own explanations.
  • Choice of timeline layout – Choose the new ‘bubble’ layout or the original ‘bar’ layout.
  • Verified Users – A small blue check-mark icon in the timeline to denote verified users.
  • Network Connection Logic – Re-worked the network connection logic, things should be alot smoother.

Go to ubertwitter.com/bb/download.php from your BlackBerry and download the update. If you’re not a fan of the ads, you can always purchase UberTwitter for $4.99.
