  1. I love it.. Buh, bye blackbird… At least this paid app can actually send pix…

  2. Can’t believe you even owned BlackBird! Lol. RIM needs to let devs have access to bridge api. Grr

    • Owned it???? Lmao hell no… I was just saying buh-bye in the sales sense to them… Lol.. Any twitter agent that doesn’t allow pic sending is a no go… Lol

    • I heard RIM say they would open the api’s for devs but didn’t give a date in their usual bague fashion.

      I do own Blackbird I have to say they have issued quite a few updates but the usability is not there yet.

  3. With these changes… it may actually no longer be a useless consumer of space on my BB. Here’s to hoping! (So far, Blaq is the only app purchase I’ve made that I regret spending the money on.)

  4. So I’m guessing the blaq app is one of or the best twitter client for the playbook?

  5. I still dint tweet…

  6. I too own BlackBird. I believe in just about every developer no matter what. And hope they can all eventually achieve what it is they need in order to be successful. I am actively working with Carty on Blaq though, and he’s been very responsive. He’s fixed every bug I listed out as well as added the features I wanted and features users prefer, within reason.

    Having a great product can be as simple as having a key audience of beta testers. You can’t hope users will mail your support email with solutions, I think you have to encourage it.
