UberTwitter decided to get out of the never ending beta cycle made popular by Gmail and release v1.0 of their Twitter client. There are revolutionary updates in this 1.0 version but it does bring some nice new features including:
- Rich Facebook Posting – Optionally post your tweets directly to Facebook from your device. Pictures and location show up in your stream as rich media previews.
- Bit.ly Pro – You asked and we delivered, now you can configure your own Bit.ly Pro account and track your own URL shortened links and take advantage of the advanced features that Bit.ly provides including the use of custom shortened URLs of your choosing.
- Dismissible Ads – For those of you on touch screen devices with the Ad supported version, you can dismiss the ad at the bottom of the screen to give you more screen space.
I found it kind of funny that UberTwitter was charging a $4.99/year subscription for a beta product but that has started to become normal. Still there is both a free ad supported version and paid $4.99/year version so there is something for everybody. You can pick up the latest UberTwitter v1.0 at this link on their website or read more at www.ubertwitter.com.
