Slick BlackBird PlayBook Twitter Client with Multiple Account Support

315569 315568

First we had Blaq impress us with their Twitter app for the PlayBook and now we have BlackBird showing up on the scene. BlackBird is a slick client to bring Twitter to your PlayBook outside of the browser. You get access to the basic features of you account including the ability to use multiple accounts which is a nice perk.

Other features include:

  • Quick access
  • Easily read your timeline and single tweets
  • Write and post your tweets and replies
  • View profiles
  • Retweet and mark as favorite
  • Multiple account support
  • Design by Austrian multiple award winners

Check out BlackBird for your BlackBerry PlayBook for $1.99 in App World.

PS: I am happy to see that RIM legal didn’t have any trouble with the name of the app including “Black” since they seem to think they own “Berry”. Crossing my fingers that maybe all of them were fired already.

  1. I’m using Blaq and like it pretty well. it would be nice if you would do an article comparing Blaq and Blackbird.

  2. BlackBird sucks!!!!!! Yesterday it was free today has a price tag…. 🙁 and also this app does NOT let u send pix… Wth? It’s DMs/mentions seem to lag or not appear at all…. Stick w/Blaq… BlackBird IS the little app that could… But right now it just doesn’t….

    [email protected] Ronen’s comment hoping those responsible for owning ‘berry’ name are fired!

  3. I got Blaq and and wish I could get my money back. They seem much better at creating hype than product: buttons that don’t do anything or require you to guess their purpose. No way to tap @names or #tags. No way to search. No way to follow unless you’re looking at a retweet or you’re already following someone. No geographical functions.As far as I can tell, there’s no easy way to manage who you are following.

    If all you want to do is browse your timeline and tweet, I’m sure it’s fine – but if that is all you want, save $2 and use the twitter web site. I seriously don’t understand how this took so long to release – the features are so basic they must hve spent a couple of months on the smooth appearance and a couple of days on adding functionality.

    Whatever its shortcomings, I can’t see BlackBird coming out the worse in comparison to Blaq

  4. Blackbird is pretty ‘bare’. I suggest twitter web or Twimbow.

  5. I dont tweet that much for that app

  6. BlackBird update 1.0.5 went online today. Several previously missing features like mentions are included now. DMs and Lists are coming very soon too.
