Playbook Twitter Client Blaq Updated to Version 1.8.2


Kisai Labs, developer of the popular Twitter client Blaq for BlackBerry Playbook has announced an update. Blaq provides a great tablet Twitter experience with multi-account management, notifications and paused timelines.

Here’s what’s new:

  • Inline photo and video previews
  • Hash tag auto-append is now optional
  • Streamlined tweet card (no longer overlaps the timeline)
  • Profile image caching
  • Hardware acceleration (smoother scrolling)
  • Reduced memory footprint

Here are the bug fixes:

  • Quote RT doesn’t include the full link
  • Text on the top of the tweet card now scrolls instead of overlapping
  • Keyboard disappears when selecting a username from auto-complete
  • Keyboard remains on screen when using the go-to-user feature
  • Classic RT/Quote RT is sent in reply to original tweet
  • Broken links when opening in the native browser
  • Bad scrolling in Options > Muting
  • Avatars overlap when multiple accounts are configured
  • Other bug and performance fixes

If you’re considering the BlackBerry Playbook as a tool to manage your Twitter accounts, Blaq is well worth the $2 considering all of the features.
