Recently I seen many new twitter clients out there for the BlackBerry, and one of the new applications I was able to test from an early stage is called Twitterlerts from electric Pocket. What I liked about this application is the approach that it takes towards twitter, this application is designed for those who want to find out the trendy topics on twitter or do research.
Twitterlerts is not meant to be a full blown social twitter client but it does have those options included on it, what this application is meant to do is to keep you updated with topics you like to be alerted when a user tweets about it. When you do a search on a topic you can save the results and it gives you the option to be notify of new tweets. The application is simple to use. The UI is simple not the best one out there but not the worst either but it sure does what is designed to do. when using other twitter clients and you want to do a search of post from a user such as @berryreview it lets you just high light it and do a search from it. If you are a BlackBerry addict you could also set it to alert you of anyone tweeting about BlackBerry. Fox example I searched my last name turns out I own a coffee shop business!, I wish, but that’s what the search results showed.
press release from the developer:
Tweet on the go and search out the best of Twitter while you’re mobile – don’t miss a beat when something happens in your world.
Twitterlerts is the Twitter client that makes its easy to stay on top of the subjects that really matter to you – and reveal a world of ideas, comments and opinion on what is important in your life – your company, your products, your competitors, sports team or hobbies.
Twitterlerts is a powerful and convenient tool for searching all that is posted on the Twitter network. You can easily save searches you make often, so they’re just a tap away. If something really matters to you, and getting timely information is crucial – Twitterlerts will alert you on your BlackBerry so you can react on the go.
You don’t need a Twitter account to use Twitterlerts, its available to everyone. If you do sign in, then you can post new tweets of your own, or reply, repost or follow the Tweeter’s who match your interests.
