UberMedia Apps UberTwitter, UberCurrent and Twidroyd Suspended by Twitter

Comment

UberMedia has been acquiring Twitter clients such as UberTwitter and Twidroyd, and they’re on the verge of acquiring TweetDeck. They have spent millions of dollars acquiring these apps in an attempt to control the discussion and if their TweetDeck acquisition goes through, they’ll own something like 20% of all tweets. Their strategy is obviously rubbing Twitter the wrong way, as the company has suspended these apps from accessing the API.

Twitter sent the following message:

UberTwitter Acquired by PostUp and Becomes Part of UberMedia

Comments

It’s not that often an app gets acquired but it’s great when it does happen. Especially for an app that has to compete with first party services like UberTwitter, which was acquired by PostUp. The acquisition puts UberTwitter in PostUps network of Twitter clients for multiple platforms which they call UberMedia, and rounds out their offerings for BlackBerry. PostUp, which focuses on building a platform to allow for easy user discovery, and helps people build up their follower list, will hopefully invest and continue to build up UberTwitter.

Nexage Sets Bar for RIM Ad SDK with Ad-Supported Apps Getting 95%+ Fill Rate

Comment

curtis sasaki shows off RIM's ad network in 2009

Nexage announced that they have integrated with apps such as crunchSMS, ÜberTwitter, and ScoreMobile, and they have increased their fill rates to 95+%. For example, ÜberTwitter, which launched a new version of its application with Nexage Mediation in July 2010, watched its fill rate jump from 60% to 98+% in August, 2010.

It should be interesting to see how these advertising services perform with respect to RIM’s ad service, and whether developers will jump ship. Also, it’s been shown on other platforms that in-app purchasing results in more revenue for developers, so the ad-supported app route isn’t necessarily a good direction for developers. On the other hand, apps like Poynt rely on ad revenue and are apparently happy with RIM’s offerings.
