ÜberTwitter Beta-7 Released To All

ÜberTwitter let us know that they have released their Beta-7 to all for download. Over the last couple of weeks they have been working hard at improving the UI and bug fixes. You can head over to This Link to DOWNLOAD

For all that ÜberTwitter does I am amazed at how low the file size is. Keep up the good work.

Here is a list of bug fixes and improvements:

  • Picture/Video Chooser – Modified to be much quicker and sort newest files to the top. Once BlackBerry fixes the bug in 5.0 which prevents us from using their built-in chooser, we will switch to that which will provide thumbnails.
  • Viewing TwitLonger Tweets – Fixed bug where longer tweets were getting cut off
  • Copy/Paste Links – Fixed a bug where when you copied/pasted a link from a tweet it would end up pasting the entire link.
  • Avatar Uploads – Fixed a bug where some users avatar uploads would consistently fail.
  • Flickr Image Support – Now support in-line thumbnails and viewing of Flickr images.
  • TwitGoo – Now support in-line thumbnails and viewing of TwitGoo images.
  • Pressing Enter on Uber Bar – Pressing ENTER on the Uber Bar will now select the tab.
  • Friend Picker – Fixed a bug where the friend picker would sometimes not show up when pressing ‘@’
  • Battery Drain – Fixed a bug where failures to load your friends list would significantly drain the battery.
  • Short-cut to Email a Tweet – press ‘z’ to email a tweet!
  • Spurious reboots/White Screens – Through painstaking tests with our test group we tracked down the issue that was causing spurious reboots and instability for some users.
  • WiFi Only Fix – Fixed a bug where users with no data plan were unable to use the wifi only mode.
  • Reply All and underscores – Fixed a bug in reply-all where users with an underscore were not getting copied properly.
  • Added Cancel to retweet dialog – Added the option to select ‘cancel’ when being asked whether to use the new or old retweet method.
  • Load More on list timelines – Fixed the ‘load more’ button so it actually works at the bottom of list timelines.
  • Focus switch to tweet text – Changed the focus to be the tweet text and not the avatar when opening a tweet
  • www.twitpic.com URL now supported – Now support www.twitpic.com for preview and image views.
  • Inability to delete tweets less than 15 characters – Fixed the bug where you couldn’t delete tweets less than 15 characters.
  • Adding account to account list – Fixed bug where adding a new account didn’t immediately show up in the account list.
  • BirdNext Proxy Bug – Fixed a bug so that the Bird Next proxy will now work when posting tweets.
  • New Style Retweets Truncated – Fixed bug where new style retweets would sometimes be truncated if the original tweet was close to 140 characters.
  • Sponsored Content – Changed sponsored content ‘bubbles’ to look different then regular tweets.
  • GPS failures – Fixed an issue where the built-in GPS would not be used for location.
  • Exceptions when permissions were not granted – Fixed numerous issues which would be triggered if the application didn’t have adequate permissions.

  1. I signed up for twitter after seeing the release of this new UberTwitter. I keep seeing all these great looking twitter apps and figured I would sign up and check them out. I am very impressed with the features of this app. Don’t have anything to compare to though since this is my first and only experience with twitter.

  2. Welcome to the twitter world, we stream links to our articles as well you can follow us @berryreview or @donluig on twitter.

    Ubertwitter is one of the best apps out there. Some of the others are seismic twitxtreme and SocialScope but that one is only by invite.
