Twibble Mobile – FREE BlackBerry Compatible Twitter Client With GPS Location Support, Images, & Auto Update

A friend of mine is a bit of a Twitter addict. He discovered a cool Java Twitter application that works with BlackBerrys and decided to share. The application is nice and small but is not totally customized for the BlackBerry so the menu and navigation are a bit clunky. On the other hand the application has some really cool features. I did not have a chance to see if they all work on my 8310 but Twibble claims they work!

  1. BB Bold + Wifi – didn’t work.

  2. Did it work over EDGE or 3G?

  3. BB BOLD .. download failed on Wifi and 3G

  4. Didn’t work for me on the Bold either.

  5. I’ve done an OTA to my Curve. Other than getting used to the clunky interface and having to turn off SSL to avoid the annoying certificate dialog every time I launch the app (I’m using BIS), it works great. Loads of functionality is here that TwitterBerry lacks (autorefresh of tweets, GPS location tracker (could get on the creepy side me thinks), ability to send direct messages, an easy way to send @replies, and built-in TwitPic support among other things).

    Sweet!

  6. Works on my BB Bold, but twitterberry’s GUI is nicer imho …but that did not work on my Bold.

  7. Not sure if they’ve released a new version since I gave this app a try mid-summer, but I uninstalled this and use Blackbird now solely because of the loud BEEEEEEP Twibble would unlease when it encountered an error. Whether the error was due to connection or hitting the Twitter API limit, it didn’t matter. Even with my phone on silent or vibrate, this sound was loud enough to be heard across the entirety of cubeland at work.
