    ÜberTwitter Beta 6 officially released!


    A big hitter in the BlackBerry Twitter app game has just pushed out Beta 6 of its popular twitter app, ÜberTwitter. This newt build comes with some pretty hefty enhancements to the previous version. List support, auto complete @friends, Uber bar, and support for the new Twitter Retweet function just to name a few. So is this the knockout punch to the other Twitter apps? I could be for now. See below for a complete list of new features.

    • Lists, Lists, Lists!!! - You can create, delete, subscribe, add members, view members, all the functionality you would expect of an Über mobile client!
    • Find People - You can search for people, just like the 'Find People' link on Twitter's home page.
    • New Icon - We love it!
    • Über Bar - We couldn't resist the name! This is a tab bar at the top of the screen, the neat thing is that you can add your own tabs! A list can be a tab, users timelines, and soon saved searches
    • Retweets - We support the old method and new method, you decide!
    • Update Twitter Profile - Yes, you can update your Twitter profile directly from your phone.
    • Profile Picture - We have heard you, upload a picture for your Twitter avatar right from your phone!
    • Report Spam - One menu selection to report a tweet as a spam.
    • Twitter Geo-Tagging - We provide support Twitter's new geo-tagging capability. You can decide whether to use myloc.me URLs, Twitter Geo-Tagging, or both!
    • Friend Picker - Type '@' and a list of your friends automatically pops up allowing selection
    • Larger Avatars - Click the profile picture, and view a larger version! You can even email that larger version!
    • TwitLonger - Yes, you can tweet MUCH longer tweets now, thanks to the folks over at TwitLonger.com, we have fully integrated this capability into both sending long tweets, and automatically retrieving long tweets. We love it!
    • What The Trend? - Ever wonder why certain topics were trending or what they meant? No more! We have integrated with the folks over at WhatTheTrend.com to allow you to see the explanations for trending topics, and also for you to provide your own explanations!
    • Choice of timeline layout - Choose the new 'bubble' layout or the original 'bar' layout.
    • Verified Users - We show a small blue check-mark icon in the timeline to denote verified users
    • Network Connection Logic - We re-worked the network connection logic, things should be alot smoother.

    just the day after i buy tweetgenius :P

    i still think SocialScope is better for me, but since i bought TG im using it now.

    UT looks nice, but i cant seem to understand how to get things INTO uberbar, i want tabs similar to SS or TG, but i just dont get it.

    UT still seems like the uber functional one

    ok, SILLY me, pressing the top blue bar reveals the tabs :P

    i dont know how to edit them tho

    and the menu for editing the uberbar, does nothing for me.

    this release of UT is finally nice looking, and its SO functional, as i think i said, i bought tweetgenius yesterday, and had Socialscope for a long time now, but the new FREE ut is sitting right on my home screen right no.

    i may buy the no adds one soon :P

    EDIT: ok,no, i don't but software thats not "mine forever", at least not now ...except tweetgenius :P

    To add a @user to the uber bar just click a tweet by them and hit the BB button. There is a "add to uber bar" selection. The uber bar maintenance doesn't do anything until a user is added to it.

    It is yours forever. You get all the no-ad upgrades for a year after you get the first one, then after that year you could just stick with whatever the last no-ad version it was that you had.

    Most software costs a little when upgrading from 1.XX to 2.0 (for example). Or think of Windows... you could stick with XP or pay for the upgrade to Windows 7...

    There may be a little more to it than that. I would check their website for details. I think I also remember that the year doesn't start until after they come out of beta (which they are still in until version 1.0)
