    Exclamation Yet another twitter client app: yatca back with new versions



    Thanks to blackberryrocks I found this information about a new activity of the developer of yatca (yet another twitter client app) for Blackberry.

    Two new versions were released on Dec. 22nd, now supporting more BB devices and including more features. Especially storm 1&2 users benefit from the new update. Touchscreen support should be much improved.

    Born by the developer not liking to use other twitter clients, it remains to be seen if it can be a real challenge to Übertwitter and the like. Here's the OTA link for OS 4.7+ for you to decide by your own.Update:
    Doesn't seem to run properly on OS 5.x.

    I tried this on my S2 yesterday and it only showed the Twitter status update page. I could never get to my timeline. Very strange.

    Same for me, couldn't get past the update page.

    Is 4.7 the only version offered?

    it's my understanding that he offered two versions, one for OS 4.6 and
    one for OS 4.7+ ...but who knows, how far the '+' really goes...

    testing now...

    Hmmmm. I've made it to the post news page (after the update)...but as soon as I send something the app shuts down (although what I've typed really appeared on twitter)...so it does not seem to be very useful, at least not for OS 5.x or for me to understand it's functions :aargh4:

    Maybe I am missing something

    Here's the change log:

    1. For Storm and Storm2 users, touchscreen support is now much improved. When reading a tweet you can swipe left to advance to the next tweet or swipe right to go back to the previous tweet. Also, the virtual keyboard now shows and hides itself automatically depending on what you’re doing (e.g. in the reading panel it is hidden but it appears if you start writing a reply).

    2. Yatca picks up stuff that that your friends have retweeted using native Twitter retweeting. Yes, I know there should be something displayed to tell you which of your friends have retweeted it but I haven’t gotten around to that yet.

    3. Yatca itself uses native Twitter retweeting now. If you really prefer to old-style “RT @superman: I am so strong!” convention then the ‘Old style retweeting’ option will enable you to revert back to doing it that way.

    4. Timeline refresh and mention checking will now only occur when your device is idle, so you won’t suffer the irritation of the progress message popping up when you’re in the middle of doing something. Hurray!

    5. If you use the ‘Pause Yatca Refresh’ command and then restart your device, Yatca will now stay paused. Previously, refresh resumed following on restart.

    6. When composing an update, reply, or retweet, you are not hard-limited to 140 characters. You are still limited to 140 characters when you actually send the text but you now have a bit of wiggle room until you get to that point. I’ve explained this badly – try it out and you’ll see what I mean.

    7. There is a new ‘Press enter to send’ option which does exactly what it says on the tin. This is disabled by default.

    8. Yatca can now be configured to do an auto refresh as frequently as once every 2 minutes. As always, please remember that your battery life and data charges are entirely your responsibility!

    9. There are a few aesthetic changes here and there, most noticeably to the appearance of buttons. This was mostly because the link-style buttons that I used previously looked pretty nasty on touchscreen devices.
