Uber Twitter 3 for Blackberry Released

by Extreme John on June 19, 2009

Before I get started I would like to say thanks to KB for commenting on my [intlink id="2236" type="post"]Uber Twitter Review[/intlink] article to inform me that Uber Twitter 3 had just been released. KB’s info came at a time when I was having the most trouble tweeting pictures with my current Uber Twitter for Blackberry application that I am using, I have been tweeting about my aggravation with the older version for the last few days. Due to my frustration and inability to have picture uploads complete I set out looking for another Twitter application for Blackberry, I have found one and plan on reviewing that next week.

Uber Twitter 3 Blackberry

After responding to KB’s comment I jumped on my Blackberry cell phone and headed over to Uber Twitter.com to see if they hand any information posted about the latest version. Much to my surprise the good folks at Uber Twitter have all the entire main page packed with information on Uber Twitter 3 release.

I quickly navigated to the download link for Uber Twitter 3 on my Blackberry phone internet browser and within a few quick scrolls of the mouse and a simple click I was on my way to having the latest Uber Twitter version. I am always a little nervous when it comes to downloading updates and having them automatically install, fearing error or some other dumb ass computer type issue. The download and update when as smooth as possible and after a quick reboot of my Blackberry Curve I was deep into the options and setup of Uber Twitter 3, which is packed with even more options than the [intlink id="2236" type="post"]previous Uber Twitter[/intlink].

I’m not going to lie here, even though I was excited about the new Uber Twitter version being released I was very scepticle when it came to giving it a shot after my experience with the old version over the last few days. I stay loyal to the products I use, especially if I am a big fan of them when I first start using them like I was with Uber Twitter, so I kept an open mind and headed right to the picture area of my phone to send a picture to Twitter and send it as a Tweet. Previously when trying to pull this task off the upload would get to 2% than error out, today when I tried it with the latest Uber Twitter version the upload progress bar stuck at 2% for a few seconds.

After surpassing the previously stressful 2% mark it jumped to 5% and so on, FINALLY my picture tweets with Uber Twitter were successful!

Once my picture tweet went through I decided to comb through the rest of the options on the new version of Uber Twitter, as if there weren’t a ton of options in the previous version this one is packed as well. The interfaces seem to scroll much smoother than previously and the tweet interface is much nicer now as well. I have included a list of some of the new features that are available in Uber Twitter 3 as well as a few of the bug fixes from the previous version to the new version. If you would like the full details of Uber Twitter 3 please visit Uber Twitter.com

Key features in Uber Twitter 3

  • Reduced batter drain
  • You can now delete your tweets
  • The ability to follow a thread of replies
  • Added the ability to make the Time line font bold
  • Added a “Copy Tweet” menu so you can copy full Tweets

Uber Twitter has added much more than you see above, they have greatly increased the GPS tracking ability that Uber Twitter was well known for being able to deliver, please keep in mind before using any application that reports your approximate location to people on the internet you should consider a few [intlink id="2201" type="post"]Twitter Safety Tips[/intlink] as you setup your options.

Uber Twitter version 3 Bug fixes

  • Fixed bug where the location being reported was ‘stuck’ to a previous location.
  • Fixed bug where escaping from writing a tweet gave a misleading prompt to save or discard the tweet.
  • Fixed bug where selecting ReTweet from time line menu makes the tweet a reply, so not everyone could see it.

If you give Uber Twitter a try please leave a comment and let everyone know what you think of the application for Blackberry phones. Uber Twitter already seems to have some nice new features planned for the next Uber Twitter version, the one I am looking forward to the most is the ability to resize photos in order to reduce upload time.

I have Verizon and never got the blackberry. My LG EnV2 is great but I can only Tweet SMS because Verizon doesn't have an app. Sucks.

My brother just got the EnV3 and loves it, he really likes the quality of the music player. I don't use features like that often so it's not as important to me as the apps.

I used twitterberry before but that one was not able to upload my pictures. Ubertwitter does the whole thing and rocks!

@Stefan NL yeah Twitter Berry was a good first baby step to tweeting from a Blackberry device, but serious Twitter users that want more feature rich options would want to go with Uber Twitter. Thank you for commenting :)

I was surprised by intrusive security needs of an earlier version.

They don’t need access to data like my fonebook, my
Inbox etc.

Have they ‘fixed’ this?

@aeg, yeah but you can also disable those features if you feel they are too intrusive.

@Extreme John,

I tried disabling what I considered non-essential but the program didn’t work. Tech support said the program had to have access to all these things, e.g., phonebook in order to work.

@extremejohn (or anyone) help! How can I get Uber Twitter to refresh to the most recent tweet? When I hit refresh, it DOEs refresh, but remains viewing the older tweets (unlike twitterberry, where when I refresh it loads most recent, and I scroll down to view older tweets).

@Harold Mellor, you have to scroll up through all of the tweets until you get to the most recent.

I disabled the “stay connected” and update notifications for it because that’s how you get that pain in the butt issue with needing to scroll through 8 days worth of tweets if you didn’t view it recently.

@Indo Contest, so far it’s ok I don’t like how long it takes for the first screen to appear, or the banner at the top.

Hi,

I was searching for a BB Twitter App that would send me notifications every time I receive a @mention. Any idea if UberTwitter manages that?

Ive had a look at this myself and its definitely a high quality product – no doubt about it. There are so many twitter related products out there today – its important you dont waste your time on the low quality ones and stick to using the good ones like Uber Twitter 3.

John, just found this post through your 20 Blog tips post today and being the Blackberry addict that I am, had to click over here.

I personally tried 6 or 8 different Twitter apps for BB before settling with Ubertwitter as my favorite, then I got my SocialScope invite and I was stunned at how great it was compared to everything else I had tried, so I stick with it.

I still use Ubertwitter for a “business” twitter account i have for my online fence products store, but my main tweets come from SocialScope.

I’ve been using UberTwitter for some time and had been getting pop-up from them to upgrade. Like you, I have always been skeptical of auto-upgrades, so I avoided it. I had been shopping around for a new mobile Twitter application because I have experienced the same picture loading issues as you and I need to be able to upload pictures for my blog while I am away. I will let you know how the upgrade works for me. Thanks for the review!
