Blaq Twitter Client for the BlackBerry PlayBook Updated to 1.6 With Klout, Bug Fixes and More

Comments

One of the best things about third party Twitter apps is that the developers take the time to put in features that may not appeal to the masses, but appeal to a small section of users and power users. It’s what makes these apps much more fun than the mainstream first party apps. For example, with Blaq, you can now check out someone’s Klout score. Or with UberSocial, you can create circles of people you want to follow more closely. With the latest update to Blaq, power users on Twitter are sure to have a lot more fun with their PlayBook.
