My Favorite Twitter v1.1 Shortcut on the BlackBerry Torch

Twitter for BlackBerry refresh

RIM added a new shortcut in the recently released v1.1 of Twitter for BlackBerry that I really like. Alex Kinsella pointed it out to me a few weeks ago and I totally forgot about it until this week. I am always opening up Twitter and wanting to refresh my timeline. That used to require me to hit the menu button and scroll down to refresh every time. In Twitter for BlackBerry v1.1 RIM simplified that for BlackBerry Torch users (not sure if Storm users are included).

All you have to do is touch and drag down on the compose button and you will automatically refresh your Twitter timeline. I wish it worked for @mentions but it is nice and intuitive. Just what I was looking for on my BlackBerry.  Now if only they would let you swipe left and right to switch between the different tabs…

Let me know if you have your own little known app tips and tricks!

  1. Storm users are not included, unfortunately. While I was told by the Beta Zone forums admin that it should work on the Storm, it never has in any of the three T4BB 1.1 builds.

  2. I think the dreaded “A” has a patent for that. Hopefully RIM licensed it; otherwise, we might have another lawsuit on the horizon.

  3. This is great on the Torch. Don’t know why they didn’t introduce some shortcut for Blackberry devices without Touchscreens. It’s looking like we’re not going to see any more new RIM devices that don’t have a touchscreen.

  5. Some more cool shortcuts I learned today are…

    If you swipe left on your timeline, it’ll take you to the bottom and if you swipe right, it’ll take you back to the top of your timeline! :)

    I’ve only confirmed this to work on the Torch as I don’t have a Storm to try it out on.
