Blaq Twitter Client for the PlayBook Updated with Lots of Features and Fixes


blaq for the playbook

One of the best things about a tablet is simply reading. The form factor is perfect for reading eBooks, keeping up with the news or scrolling through a Twitter timeline. One of our favorite Twitter clients for the PlayBook is Blaq and the app has recently been updated with a host of features and fixes. One of the best features is being able to manage multiple accounts. The app costs $1.99 but the update is free.

Grab a copy of Blaq from App World at this link. You can also hit the jump and read more about the specific features.

TweetCaster Now Available in Public Beta with Ability to Share on BBM

TweetCaster is the latest 3rd party app and it comes from Handmark. The app comes after the news of Seesmic discontinuing support for their social media tool and it looks like it has a few features that Twitter users will really appreciate. The app has an interesting UI that’s very different from other Twitter apps we’ve seen. The only strange thing is that when you want to connect your Twitter account, it opens a permission for TweetCaster to publish updates on your behalf. That’s not exactly something we want in a Twitter app but it could just be associated with the beta. Cool features that are not currently in the beta, but they will be included when app goes live in App World in a few weeks include:

  • “Zip It” feature– Enables user to hide annoying @people, #trends, or any keyword from your timeline. A zipper shows in its place in your timeline, to remind you if you want to unzip.
  • Share to BlackBerry Messenger – Allowing you to retweet not only to all your Twitter followers, but also just with a few people on BBM. No other Twitter app lets you do this.
  • Instapaper Support – Sometimes opening links takes too long on your BlackBerry. Saving them to your Instapaper account lets you access them later, at your convenience.

Find BBM Contacts on Facebook With SearchBBM.com


PIN sharing is still going really strong. We can see a great example of it on our facebook page where every day users comment their PIN. It seems to be most popular in Asia and South America, where users may not have the same worries about privacy as in North America. SearchBBM is a new site that connects BBM through Facebook and potentially other social networks (we assume Twitter is on its way). So if you’re in the mood to find a new BBM friend, we suggest you check it out.

To give it a shot, head over to searchbbm.com.
