    Official BlackBerry Twitter App now in beta! Unfortunately only by invitation.


    Seems the talk about RIM's official Twitter app was true indeed. It's now officially in beta and if you are lucky enough to have an invite code, you can try it out. Initial reports are that there is no icon caching which causes a little lag in changing screens. But nevertheless, it's another Twitter app to try. It's lacking in some of the features we have all become accustomed to such as, profile settings for mentions. But it also has features that other clients don't. Like integration into the messages list. If you don't have an invite and want to see it in action, Adam Zeis at CrackBerry has uploaded a video of the Official BlackBerry Twitter Client in action. It looks pretty nice aesthetically. I would love to see it running on a touchscreen device. I think the extra screen space would really help out a lot.

    Perhaps they could have replaced the god-awful Facebook client for BB before they worried about a Twitter client? There has to be a better way to use FB (of course, there is socialscope, who just don't understand how to run a software beta...but that is a rant for another topic)...

    This works just fine on the 9530 as well. I will be interested in seeing how this is on memory and battery compared to Uber. I do like the fact that it is a more Twitter-y looking app.

    Lately I have been a fan of Twitstat Mobile on the BB Browser (Twitstat Mobile).

    I've applied for a code, lets hope I'm picked.

    I'm going to write up on their blog a couple of times, to increase my chances, but I won't spam them.

    The app looks nice and clean from what I have seen so far.

    Let us not forget that the app is in public beta, there are bound to be a few hiccups along the way, whether its a missing accustomed feature, such as profile editor, or as Adam says in the video a 1 minute automatic update for the app.

    Sure, it'll be nice to have all these features, but let's just wait a while, let the app get up and running, and then hope and request for more. What's that saying again..."Rome wasn't built in a day"

    I received my code a few hours ago.

    Its very nice. But I think I may stick with Social Scope. Those that have SS may understand when the get their hands on Twitter.

    My Twitter App Rating.
    Social Scope beta
    Twitter beta
    Uber Twitter beta
    Then all the rest!

    I'm really picky about Twitter apps, but I think I'm actually impressed and like the Twitter app for BlackBerry.
