Ubertwitter Beta 4 Released – Adds Advertising & Multiple Accounts!

ubertwitter_advertising The most popular BlackBerry Twitter client Ubertwitter has been updated to Beta 4. Cgaliffi posted the info along with a bit of details on the update. Sadly this upgrade adds an annoying advertising banner to the application… It is Ubertwitters choice on how to monetize their application but this may turn many off from the application since the BlackBerry screen is already pretty small to eat more real estate. Hopefully a paid version will also come out soon.

Changes include:

  • Multiple Accounts – You can now configure multiple accounts, each with their own set of on-device preferences.
  • You can now BLOCK people!
  • Video Integration – We have partnered with TwitVid.com to offer you an outstanding video integration.
  • Goto user – You can now enter twitter users name and go directly to their timeline
  • URL Shortening – we’ve integrated with bit.ly so you can easily send those long URLs now and not bump up against the 140 limit
  • MUCH faster photo uploads, significantly improving the user experience.
  • Use of the internal GPS is now solidly supported with proper fallback to cell tower based location when GPS isn’t available.
  • Icon Caching If you have and SD card, we will cache avatar icons on the card, increasing the speed of timeline displays and reducing network traffic.
  • You can now select pictures and videos that have already been take and are on your device. The interface shows the most recent at the top and offers a preview so you can verify it is the picture/video you expected!
  • When composing a tweet you can now insert symbols from a large selection of commonly available characters such as smiley’s, hearts, etc.
  • Integrated advertisements – Please note, the ads are there to support the freely distributable version of ÜberTwitter. Users that purchase ÜberTwitter will not have advertisement in their version.
  • We’ve streamlined the friends and followers lists
  • You can now see both the number of friends, followers, and tweets sent when viewing the details of a tweet.
  • Replying to a DM from the timeline will now correctly send a DM and not a regular tweet
  • Fixed the bug in reply all where it would truncate some twitter user names
  • Added reply all to the menu when viewing a tweet

  1. I, for one, don’t have a problem with the ad mostly because it scrolls right off the top of the screen as I start reading tweets…

    If the dev makes money and it doesn’t bother me, then all the better…

  2. I agree. I got used to the small scroll line and it moves as you move down. If they can keep it free, I don’t mind the ads that don’t intrude.
