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.
