Are you a blackberry user and currently addicted to twitter? Well I think that statement may pertain to a lot of blackberry users out there now a day. In the world of blackberry’s there is a decent amount of choices for twitter apps. There are some paid applications out there and also a good amount of free applications. Well if anyone is like me then the favorite thing to hear is FREE!!!
With trying many different twitter clients on my blackberry like, Twitter for blackberry, SoicalScope, Tweet Genius etc, etc I feel the best experience I get is from the client named UberTwitter.
Ubertwitter is a free twitter client that includes a abundance of features for the user to take advantage of. With the most recent release of their client they have added in a ton of new features that just makes this application that much better. Gives you the ability to have more then 1 twitter account as well which for some people helps out a lot.
Some of the features that really makes this application the best are Uberchannels, Instapaper, hashtag picker, mute, and best off all speed. As you will see in some of the pictures below that there was a option that was included to change the color of the UI. Currently in the pictures below you will see the red UI that honestly is my favorite. Also you will see the white UI from a storm which is also a very nice color UI.
UberChannels is a amazing feature that allows you to go to different categories to view conversations about that specific topic. For example when you first click on the Channel icon it launches to a screen that gives you options like, Featured, Tech & Science, sports etc, etc. This has to be one of the best ideas for a twitter client out there. Reasoning is it’s quick access to a lot of conversations out there in the twitter world instead of having to search for something.
This has to be one of the best features of Uber I must say. The Uberbar in general has a lot of features. Besides having the @ replies and Direct message links you can set it up to auto hide when in your timeline which is amazing. Another wonderful feature of the UberBar is if you don’t feel like following someone but want to view their timelines every once and while you can add them to the Uberbar and just click on their icon to view timeline.
Another great added feature is the ability to link your account with instaPaper. This feature allows you to be able to back up your tweets to instapaper and be able to read them later on. Honestly when testing this out never thought I’d use it but its really come in handy overtime. You can visit instapaper.com and see your tweets that you have saved in the past.
Pretty cool feature to add in to twitter application. I’m sure every twitter addict out there knows that when tweeting a lot you always seem to be using hashtags. With the feature of hashtag picker it actually saves your past hashtags that you have used so it makes it easier to use them when tweeting. All in all a wonderful addition.MUTE
Like me I bet a lot of users will love this feature the ability to mute users. Now you really don’t want to be mean and unfollow someone (unless they are very annoying) now with Uber you have the option of just muting them. I must say the ability to mute users helps out and really comes in handy, specially if your tired of seeing the same thing posted and retweeted over and over again.
From back in the early days of Uber to the present I must say that it has come along way. Not just with the many new features its added but the all around performance as well. The application runs very smooth and fast. When it comes to providing feedback for bugs or enhancements the response is extremely quick. The pushing out of updates if any bugs are found also is top notch, I would have to say the best support out there out of any blackberry applications is with Uber.
